New York Times reporter Amy Chozick covered Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign, and she says that some of the men who worked on it weren’t exactly living up to the political correctness of their candidate.
Chozick told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota about her experience on Monday.
“The men on her campaign did say sexist things to you and treat you in a sexist way,” Camerota noted. “Not all, but some.”
“Right some,” Chozick answered. “And that was actually — I want to just clarify — it was pre-campaign period, sort of, when she was out of the State Department and had her long time aides kind of protecting coverage very tightly.”
“Yeah, absolutely there were things that could be construed as sexist and they really tried to get into my head, saying that ‘no one takes you seriously,’ you know, could make you not want to get out of bed in the morning.”
Chozick also claimed in her new book that one man who worked for Clinton made a sex joke toward her. (RELATED: NYT Reporter Claims That The Men On Hillary’s Campaign Were Sexist, Made Jokes About Hooking Up With Journalists)
