In her brief remarks, Clinton praised Balz and praised the namesake of the award, Robin Toner. Toner was the first female national political reporter for the New York Times. Clinton joked about her pas relationship with press, but she knows that she will need them on her side when she announces her campaign. She described her relationship with the media as “complicated” at times, but she said, “Those of us on the other side are not always going to be happy about whatever it is you do, but we do understand in our more rational moments that is your job. And we and our democracy depend on you.”
