Hillary Clinton is breaking her anti-Sunday show rule as she accelerates her media strategy and interview appearances.
The former Secretary of State will sit down with John Dickerson on CBS’ “Face the Nation” this weekend for her first Sunday show interview since 2011.
The appearance comes on the heels of Clinton’s talk with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Thursday, hilariously chatting on the phone with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday and apologizing for her use of a personal email server to conduct official business as Secretary of State in an interview with ABC’s David Muir last week.
Clinton was criticized by the media for months for her lack of interviews and press availability; she’s apparently turning that around as she tries to put to rest never-ending questions about her emails and refocus the press on her campaign and experience.
In previous years, the former First Lady and New York Senator has made it clear that she’s not exactly tuning in to the Washington chatterfests known as Sunday morning talk shows.
“Well, I have to confess here in public. Going on the Sunday shows is not my favorite thing to do,” Clinton said while testifying in front of Congress in 2013. “There are other things I prefer to do on Sunday mornings. And, you know, I haven’t been on a Sunday show in way over a year. So it just isn’t something I normally jump to do.”
