Former ABC News White House correspondent Sam Donaldson endorsed Mike Bloomberg in the 2020 election but many media members aren’t happy the famed journalist offered his opinion.

“After a lifetime of reporting the news, now is the time for me to stand up as a private citizen and do everything in my power to help defeat Donald Trump and elect Mike Bloomberg the next president of the United States,” Donaldson wrote for CNN.

The article goes on to state the following:

“It’s misguided to think someone who worked in journalism for more than 50 years — someone whose name is associated with tough but fair reporting — can now express a political opinion and not have it do serious damage to the credibility of those currently working in the media,” [The Poynter Institute senior media writer Tom] Jones wrote. “Even Donaldson seemed to know that he might have been crossing a line in his endorsement of Bloomberg.”

Team Bloomberg tweeted a video of the endorsment, adding, “Legendary journalist Sam Donaldson knows Mike has what it takes to take on Trump and beat him. Sam covered campaigns for 52 years, and this is the first time he’s endorsed anyone. Welcome to #TeamBloomberg!”

“In Sam Donaldson’s 52 years as a reporter, he strived for complete independence. Now, for the first time, the retired correspondent is endorsing a candidate for federal office — Michael Bloomberg. Here’s what he told @andersoncooper,” CNN’s Brian Stelter tweeted.

“I am really thrown off by seeing Sam Donaldson — my former boss @ABC — doing a political ad. This hurts all working reporters who are trying to prove to the public they aren’t all liberal and biased,” reporter Emily Miller tweeted.
