The democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton has said in an interview that she didn't disclose her pneumonia diagnosis originally as she didn't think it would be a big deal.
She's been facing criticism that she hadn't revealed her condition when diagnosed on Friday, but only after she almost collapsed in public two days later.
Jon Sopel - BBC News:
When the news broke that Hillary Clinton had been diagnosed with pneumonia it made headlines around the world.
But, in her interview last night, the democratic presidential candidate said she didn't think her illness was going to be that big a deal and she batted away suggestions that she'd been secretive. "People know more about me than almost anyone else in public life," she told CNN.
That may be true, but among many Americans there's a feeling that the Clintons are anything but transparent.
