Hillary Clinton: Today's media is more entertainment, less facts

Storrs, Connecticut (CNN) - Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lamented the state of journalism on Wednesday, telling an audience at the University of Connecticut that journalism is now driven more by entertainment than fact based reporting.

Clinton, who has been the focus of national media attention since the early 1990s, told the 2,300-person audience that "journalism has changed quite a bit in a way that is not good for the country and not good for journalism."

But that wasn't the biggest reason Thursday's event was going to change Bajamonti's life. If called on, the 19-year-old student planned to divulge a secret she had kept for over a decade: She was an undocumented immigrant.

With hopes of winning issue, group trumpets Hillary Clinton's income inequality record

Washington (CNN) – Correct the Record, the communications and rapid response arm of a pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC, is touting the former secretary of state's record on income inequality at the same time as national Democrats seize on what they see as a winning electoral issue.

In a research report titled "Hillary Clinton: A Lifetime Champion of Income Opportunity," the group is defending Clinton's record by highlighting efforts from her career as secretary of state, senator from New York and first lady. Some of those highlights include "raising the minimum wage," "advocating for out-of-work Americans" and "getting equal pay for equal work."
