New York, March 5 : It seems that Hillary Clinton doesn't carry a soft corner for the press, for the US presidential candidate did the unbelievable by setting up an impromptu press room in a men's bathroom, complete with urinals.
On the night before the Texas and Ohio primaries, the senator's media entourage was asked to work from a men's room of a separate community center.
Former New Yorker and Talk editrix Tina Brown was among the couple dozen journalists who set up tables inches away from porcelain urinals.
The slogging press corps, which had been touring with the waning presidential hopeful, was dumped in the Austin, Texas, Burger Activity Center men's room.
The loo, rather the press room, was fully equipped with makeshift workstations, Wi-Fi and a tamale-and-candy dinner while Hillary held a town hall meeting in a separate building.
The Democratic senator has already blamed her campaign struggles on increasingly unfair media coverage.
"For the record these accommodations should in no way be taken as a commentary on the quality of our media coverage," the New York Post quoted Hillary's spokesperson Doug Hattaway, as saying.
