Organizers of the March 23 Toner Prize Celebration, which is named after the late New York Times reporter Robin Toner, told the Center for Public Integrity the event would be open to reporters. However, the keynote speaker, Clinton, does not plan to take their inquiries.
Business Insider reached out to Clinton’s office to confirm the report. A Clinton spokesman referred the question back to the event’s organizers.
Clinton, the Democratic front-runner for president in 2016, is embroiled in a controversy surrounding her exclusive use of personal email addresses while she served as secretary of state. According to The New York Times, this may have violated federal guidelines and could have left state secrets vulnerable on an unsecure server. Both Clinton’s email issue and her alleged avoidance of the press have fueled criticism she is insufficiently transparent.
After days of relentless media coverage since Monday, Clinton addressed the emails in a tweet late Wednesday night.
