MSNBC anchor Brian Williams called out Bloomberg Politics host (and quasi-MSNBC host) Mark Halperin Thursday night for his coverage of the 2016 campaign, saying that Halperin goes out of his way to present the news in a way favorable to Donald Trump.
“Mark Halperin, to you, I say this with charity in my heart as an every evening and weekly viewer,” he prefaced. “When Donald Trump complains that he is not getting favorable coverage in the MSM, he has not been listening to you this cycle.”
Williams continued: “I think you’ve gone out of your way to find the path, argue for the path, forge the path for him in an argumentative way with your co-host to the nomination.”
“Tonight I thought you were interestingly optimistic,” he said. “Where are you getting the path of positivity you laid out on your broadcast tonight?”
