The New York Times on Wednesday announced a new installment in its First Draft section — and it takes aim at Hillary Clinton.
Upset that the Democratic presidential candidate has not given an interview since she announced her candidacy, the Times said it would start publishing hypothetical questions it would have asked her if its reporters were given the opportunity.
"Since she declared her candidacy on April 12, Hillary Rodham Clinton has answered just seven questions from reporters," Times political reporter Amy Chozick wrote. "This is the first installment of a regular First Draft feature in which The Times will publish questions we would have asked Mrs. Clinton had we had the opportunity."

The Times' first question was in regard to the plan Clinton laid out on immigration.
“President Obama said his executive action on immigration went as far as the law will allow. You say you would go beyond what he did. How could you stretch the law further than the president of your own party and his Justice Department says it can go?”
The Times encouraged readers to send in questions they have for Clinton.
