Bloomberg Editor: NYT Like The Onion

MSNBC’s "Morning Joe"

By    |   Thursday, 10 Nov 2016 03:20 PM

Bloomberg News editor Mark Halperin compared The New York Times to satirical news source The Onion on MSNBC’s "Morning Joe" on Thursday, while accusing the paper of "amazing" bias.

"I love The New York Times; I think it's a great institution," Halperin said, holding up the front page of the newspaper with the headline "Democrats, Students And Foreign Allies Face The Reality Of A Trump Presidency.”

"This is the day after a surprising underdog sweeping victory," he said. "Their headline is not 'Disaffected Americans Have A Champion Going To The White House' or 'The Country Votes For Fundamental Change.'"

"The headline is about how disappointed the friends of the people who run The New York Times are about what happened."

"Morning Joe" co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough joined in critiquing the story, prompting Halperin to add: "It's a great example. . . . It's The Onion."

"The responsibility of journalists is not to report on their biases," he continued.

Last week MSNBC anchor Brian Williams accused Halperin of favoring Trump in his coverage as co-host of Bloomberg TV's political affairs program "With All Due Respect."

"Mark Halperin, to you, I say this with charity in my heart as an every evening and weekly viewer," Williams began, per Mediaite. "When Donald Trump complains that he is not getting favorable coverage in the [mainstream media], he has not been listening to you this cycle."

"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 [John Heilemann] to the nomination,” Williams added.
