Bashir: Margaret Thatcher Was Mean to Journalists

BY:

MSNBC host Martin Bashir appeared on "The Daily Rundown" Monday to give his perspective on the legacy of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher, including what he called unkindness by her to journalists.

"She also ushered in some fairly brutal attacks on the business of journalism through Rupert Murdoch's work against the unions in the press," he said. "I remember becoming a journalist professionally in 1984, just as that began to happen. She was not very kind to journalists at all and to our profession."

Thatcher, who served as prime minister from 1979 to 1990, died Monday after suffering a stroke. She was 87.
