Former ABC news anchor Ted Koppel says the establishment media is out to get President Donald Trump.

"I'm terribly concerned that when you talk about The New York Times these days, when you talk about The Washington Post these days, we're not talking about The New York Times of 50 years ago," Koppel said during a discussion on "The War on the Press" with former CBS correspondent Marvin Kalb at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace on March 7.

"We are not talking about The Washington Post of 50 years ago. We're talking about organizations that I believe have, in fact, decided as organizations that Donald J. Trump is bad for the United States."

Koppel, who anchored ABC News' "Nightline" for 25 years, added that analysis and commentary published now on the front page of Times and Post outlets did not appear on the front page in the past.

He also said Trump's perception that "the establishment press is out to get him" is accurate.

"He's not mistaken in that perception and he's not mistaken when so many of the liberal media, for example, described themselves as belonging to the resistance. What does that mean?" he said.
