John Harwood announced on Tuesday he has left CNBC to join CNN as a White House correspondent. In other words, another liberal hack joined the Orange Man Bad network.
some personal news: this is my first day at @CNN as White House Correspondent. honored and proud to join a team of journalists I’ve admired for so long— John Harwood (@JohnJHarwood) January 21, 2020
Harwood's many biased and slanted tweets alone dispel any notion that he is an objective journalist, but his hackery goes beyond bad tweets.
Through the Wikileaks dump of the Democratic National Committee's emails, it was revealed Harwood would frequently email John Podesta when he was chairman to Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign. Harwood would lavish praise on Clinton in his emails to Podesta, communications director Jennifer Palmieri, and adviser Jake Sullivan. Harwood also emailed Podesta on what he should ask former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in an upcoming interview.
When Harwood was moderator for one of the Republican presidential primary debates in 2016, he asked then-candidate Trump if he was running a "cartoon" version of a campaign, a question that was widely criticized.
CNN deciding to hire Harwood comes right after they spent almost a week whining that Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) called one of their reporters a "liberal hack."
"It is extremely unbecoming for a U.S. Senator to sink to this level and treat a member of the press this way for simply doing his job," CNN said in a statement. The irony seems to be lost on the network.
