NBC host Matt Lauer last night: “The word judgment has been used a lot around you Secretary Clinton over the last year and a half and in particular concerning the use of your personal email and server to communicate while you were Secretary of State. You’ve said it’s a mistake. You’ve said you made not the best choice. You were communicating on highly sensitive topics. Why wasn’t it more than a mistake? Why wasn’t it disqualifying if you want to be Commander in Chief?”

Hillary: “Well Matt first of all, as I have said repeatedly it was a mistake to have a personal account. I would certainly not do it again. I make no excuses for it. It was something that should not have been done but the real question is the handling of classified material which is I think what the implication of your question was and for all the viewers watching you tonight. I have a lot of experience dealing with classified material, starting when I was on the Senate Armed Services Committee, going into the four years as secretary of state. Classified material has a header which says top secret, secret, confidential. Nothing and I will repeat this and this is verified in the report by the Department of Justice, none of the emails sent or received by me had such a header.”

Daily Mail today: “Matt Lauer has been labeled a ‘morning show lightweight’ by furious political pundits after he failed to grill Donald Trump on his claim he never supported the Iraq War during a Commander in Chief Forum on Wednesday night – but relentlessly questioned Hillary over her private email scandal.”

All of the complaints about 275 days without being in front of the press.
