In a video posted to Twitter, Arizona activist Kyle Clifton confronts Camryn Sanchez, an AZ Capitol Times reporter embroiled in a stalking scandal following a restraining order filed by Arizona Senator Wendy Rogers. Camryn was caught on a doorbell camera at one of Senator Rogers’ properties and has repeatedly harassed the senator’s neighbors for information about the senator’s whereabouts.
Senator Rogers previously took to Twitter to post photos of the doorbell incident, declaring, “Creepy @azcapitoltimes reporter @CamrynSanchezAZ has been stalking me and my neighbors at my private residences with no explanation. A judge just issued a restraining order against her for her bizarre behavior.”

In the video, Kyle Clifton attempts to contact the reporter to hear her perspective on the incident. He first approaches the office of the Arizona Capitol Times, only to find that they had locked all doors to the building and would not come to the entrance to provide comment. Later, he is able to get in touch with the reporter over the phone and asked her a few pointed questions.
Kyle lead with, “Was it your goal to force Wendy Rogers to get a restraining order on you for publicity?” She briefly replied, “Can’t Comment sorry…and I’m sorry really because I wish I could — very frustrating as a journalist!”
In following up, Mr. Clifton pressed, “Did your publication approve of you going to Wendy’s home?” In response, Mrs. Sanchez refused to comment and referred Clifton to the scheduled hearing later in May, saying that “I really can’t tell you anything except for…actually, I can tell you one thing…the hearing is going to be on May 10th at 1:30 PM in Flagstaff.”
But the interview took an interesting turn when Mr. Clifton asked Sanchez if she could vouch for her own character. He inquired, “Do you have a history of violent behavior?” To which Sanchez replied, “I really can’t comment.”
“You can’t comment on if you have a history of violent behavior?” She replied, “I can’t…” He followed up, “It’s not about your publication, it’s about your personal history…do you have any criminal past or behavior?” Resigned, she insisted, “I really can’t…I would love to say a lot of nice things defending myself but I just can’t.”
Mr. Clifton concluded, “Can you pass along your address so that we can go interview your neighbors and make sure you are not a dangerous individual?” She finished, “I can’t do that. No comment.”

Camryn Sanchez and the AZ Capitol Times have no problem stalking and harassing Senator Wendy Rogers and her innocent neighbors, but when pressed to defend their character or provide evidence that they don’t have violent intent or nefarious motive, could not provide any comment.
National File was able to get in touch with Mr. Clifton to get his thoughts on the interaction. Mr. Clifton expressed serious concerns about the behavior of Sanchez and the AZ Capitol Times, declaring, “When you see someone traveling two hours just to go knock on doors and harass your neighbors, just to ask creepy questions, it is borderline violent behavior.”
In reference to her failure to provide character references, Mr. Clifton observed, “I thought her silence was strange. I was asking direct questions about her self image and she was unable to answer those basic questions. Her failure to answer says a lot — if someone was attacking my character, I would want to defend myself right away!”
When asked about what this kind of journalism means for the industry, Mr. Clifton noted that this marks, “A moral decay in journalism as a whole. You are starting to see less journalism and more doxing. Journalism should have integrity and there is no integrity there [at the AZ Capitol Times].”
