Former MSNBC host Ed Schultz put the mainstream media on blast in a podcast on Monday, saying that “the fix was in” for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Schultz, who supported Bernie Sanders in 2016, told National Review podcast host Jamie Weinstein he thinks “the Clintons were connected to Andy Lack, connected at the hip.
“I think that they didn’t want anybody in their prime time or anywhere in their lineup supporting Bernie Sanders,” he continued. “I think that they were in the tank for Hillary Clinton and I think it was managed and 45 days later I was out at MSNBC. And I thought it stunk.”
Schultz also tore into how many in the establishment media shielded Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Democratic primary.
“And when you see how the campaign unfolded,” he added, “Donna Brazile feeding Hillary Clinton questions at the campaign, the DNC undercutting Bernie Sanders, the super-delegates that were organized by Hillary Clinton, I mean, in my state of Minnesota where I’m a resident and pay taxes, Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar were super-delegates and despite the fact that Bernie Sanders won Minnesota they supported Clinton. The fix was in. The fix was in with the mainstream media. The fix was in with managing the news and shutting down Bernie Sanders.”
