Former liberal MSNBC host Ed Schultz hit the Hillary Clinton team for its attacks on Russia and RT, the Russian-owned TV network that now employs him.
A new profile on Schultz looks at his evolution from sportscaster to liberal commentator to Trump-sympathizing populist on RT.
"The Clinton camp is trying to do all it can to connect Donald Trump to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin," Schultz told the Washington Post's Paul Farhi. "They're trying to cast anyone on RT in a negative light. I think it's deplorable. We're journalists. We're fair. We have correspondents all over the world. Yes, part of our funding comes from the government. But so does the BBC. So does the Canadian Broadcasting Network. The mainstream depiction of RT is a travesty. It's dishonest."
