Co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Mika Brzezinski claimed that ABC News demonstrated a “lack of judgment” when it hired anchor George Stephanopolous and expected him to be unbiased, despite his extensive career with the Clintons.

“The part that I think is problematic is that he covered the story about donations to the Foundation while not disclosing that he gave donations to the Foundation,” Brzezinski said in reaction to Stephanopolous’ apology for covering the Clinton Foundation scandal without disclosing he had donated $75,000 to the organization.

“Having said that, I’m listening to all these sound bites and all these people who are dumbfounded and shocked and can’t believe what they have seen and it just seems to me that he worked on the Clinton campaign, he worked tirelessly to elect Bill Clinton, he served under Bill Clinton,” she said. “Who would be so surprised that he has ties to the Clintons?”

“And if anything, that seems to me to be a lack of judgment on the people who are hiring him to think that he can just erase those from his brain,” she concluded. “Biases exist.” (VIDEO: MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski: ‘Frustrating’ Hilary Won’t Take Questions)
