Media Bias: Debate Moderator John Harwood Advised the Clinton Campaign

Remember the CNBC presidential primary debate? It was highly criticized by Republicans as a glaring example of media bias.

Thanks to Wikileaks, the GOP finally has proof the moderators weren’t just hostile towards Republicans, they were actually advising the Hillary Clinton campaign.

According to The Daily Caller:

The latest batch of emails from the account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta show New York Times reporter and CNBC anchor John Harwood giving the Clinton campaign tips about other candidates and bragging about feeling vindicated by provoking Donald Trump as a debate moderator.

In a December 2015 email to Podesta, Harwood bragged about his much-criticized debate performance in which he asked Trump “Let’s be honest, is this a comic book version of a presidential campaign?” Harwood titled the email “I imagine…” and continued the sentence in the body of the email, writing, “…that Obama feels some (sad) vindication at this demonstration of his years-long point about the opposition party veering off the rails.”

“I certainly am feeling that way with respect to how I questioned Trump at our debate,” Harwood continued. In May of 2015, early on in the Republican primary process, Harwood sent Podesta an email telling him to “watch out” for Dr. Ben Carson.” The subject line of that email read, “Watch out.” “Ben Carson could give you real trouble in a general,” Harwood warned.

It’s one thing to favor Democrats over Republicans in news coverage. It’s another to coordinate directly with Democratic political campaigns to give them a competitive edge.

This takes mainstream media bias to a whole new level.
