The Clintons and the press are caught in a pointless, toxic cycle of scandal - Vox
Reporters who’ve spent time with Hillary Clinton find that she’s absorbed this view, that she and Bill feel they can’t catch a breakwith the press, and so she isn't too concerned about taking actions that could exacerbate the problem.

"It’s a paranoiac cycle — Clinton and her team think that everyone is after her, and their behavior creates further incentive for everyone to come after her."
