Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on why she didn’t appear on the Sunday talk shows on Sept. 16, 2013 to discuss the Benghazi attack. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the attacks against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya was held on Jan. 23, 2013:
I have to confess here in public. Going on the Sunday shows is not my favorite thing to do. There are other things I prefer to do on Sunday mornings. And you know, I haven’t been on a Sunday show in way over a year. So it just isn’t something that I normally jump to do.
