It might seem a far cry for a politician on the same ticket as Donald Trump — who bragged Thursday night about leaving his traveling press corps behind — but his running mate Mike Pence used to champion press freedom.

NPR's David Folkenflik talks with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson about recent run-ins between Trump and his traveling press corps in Washington and in New Hampshire, and how the Trump and Clinton campaigns worked with — or neglected to work with — the press this week.
