Larry King Praises Hillary Clinton’s Handling of Email Scandal: ‘The Question Is, Is It Convincing?’

In an exclusive Twitter Q&A with TheWrap, the broadcasting legend also addresses the state of media and 2016 presidential race

Media icon Larry King decried the state of journalism on Tuesday while participating in an exclusive Twitter Q&A for TheWrap.

“Too much attention [is given to] tabloid stories & ‘fluffy’ stories in mainstream news,” he wrote during his Q&A with TheWrap. “Kardashians are not news to me.”

“Everyone does these stories, I had to do them, doesn’t mean I like them,” he continued. “However, we should discuss Equal Pay more.”

King kicked off his digital Q&A soon after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had begun a press conference to discuss her email habits. Naturally, she was the subject of one of the first questions King answered.

“[In my opinion, Clinton is] handling it very well, admitting she could have done it another way,” he wrote. “The question is, is it convincing?”

Many consider Clinton a presumptive Democratic candidate in the next presidential election and another Q&A participant wanted to know how King sees the political landscape unfolding in 2016: “Right now it looks like Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton, but things could change in a minute,” he wrote.

King went on to discuss the Los Angeles Dodgers, Nelson Mandela and why Jerry Seinfeld credits him with creating Twitter.
