Needless to say, if you’ve paid attention to the news for the past months, you’ve likely heard of the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s health. Initially fueled by speculation, many had that speculation confirmed Sunday when Hillary fainted at the 9/11 memorial, and later stated she’d been diagnosed with pneumonia two days prior (which was never disclosed to the public).Ironically, in a few weeks you’ll be able to find Hillary Clinton….. on the cover of Women’s Health magazine.
Before her collapse and health scare in New York City, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was interviewed for the latest issue of Women’s Health magazine.

When asked about the biggest obstacle she faced during her campaign, Clinton said it was the new media culture. “In the heat of a campaign, in a culture that rewards brevity and clever phrases on social media, it can be really tempting to give simple answers to complex problems,” she said. “That’s never been my style.”
I’m sure what she’s really afraid of when it comes to the “new media culture” is the rise of independent media – a.k.a. media that will actually dare to criticize her. Without it, the mainstream media would’ve succeeded in sweeping questions surrounding her health under the rug.
