Mike Huckabee on Friday tore into the cable network HLN for blurring a man's pro-Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpThe Hill's Campaign Report: Democratic field begins to shrink ahead of critical stretch To ward off recession, Trump should keep his mouth and smartphone shut Trump: 'Who is our bigger enemy,' Fed chief or Chinese leader? MORE T-shirt during an interview, calling it another example of the death of unbiased journalism.

“It’s an example of the fact that journalism is dead as we once knew it,” Huckabee said on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria.”


“Today the bias in the media — you just gave two examples from Headline News [HLN] and CNN — we see it all the time with Facebook, we see it with The New York Times, with The Washington Post. [These are] organizations that used to be respected in journalistic circles and now are nothing more than fronts for left-wing claptrap.”

When interviewing a man who saved a baby from a hot car earlier this week, HLN blurred the man's pro-Trump shirt when replaying the interview.

Huckabee also slammed sister network CNN for showing an edited version of a Trump tweet that removed language calling Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonThe road not taken: Another FBI failure involving the Clintons surfaces DHS cyber agency to prioritize election security, Chinese threats ABC chose a debate moderator who hates Trump MORE “crooked.”

“It used to be that if you read a story written by a journalist, you didn’t really know whether that journalist liked the person he was writing about or didn’t,” the former Arkansas governor and staunch backer of Trump's presidential bid said.

“I always said the best journalists were the ones who when I read the story about me, I couldn’t tell whether they liked me or not. And when I read that, I said, ‘that’s a real journalist.' I don’t read many stories like that ever. There just aren’t any.”

Huckabee also slammed Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, for shunning formal press conferences.

“It would be easier to find Amelia Earhart than it would be to find Hillary Clinton in public these days,” he said.

Trump has feuded with media personalities throughout his campaign, most notably Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly and MSNBC "Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
