The latest dump of the "Podesta Emails" exposed a very tight link between the "impartial" John Harwood of CNBC and the Clinton campaign. In email after email, Harwood has been exposed constantly lavishing praise upon Hillary like a subservient puppy seeking his master's love and affection.
The first email came in July 2015 when Harwood alerted the Clinton campaign to a tweet he had just sent out defending Hillary in her email scandal.
Here is the original tweet:
set aside process - if there's any specific/plausible suggestion of nefarious email @HillaryClinton was trying to hide, I haven't heard it.— John Harwood (@JohnJHarwood) July 24, 2015
A few days later, Hillary's Communications Director, Jennifer Palmieri, wrote a letter to the New York Times editor blasting the paper for their coverage of the email scandal..which Harwood acknowledged in the following email with the subject "good letter."
Then there is the following email in which Harwood just felt compelled to let Podesta know how comfortable Hillary looked talking with Andrea Mitchell of MSNBC.
Then a month later, just as Hillary was sinking in the polls and Joe Biden was getting pressure to enter the race, Harwood reached out just to see how everyone at camp Clinton was doing. Isn't he so nice?
Apparently Podesta appreciated the gesture because a few days later Harwood reached out to schedule a lunch.
Then, a month later he reached out to ask "don't you think it's time...for HRC to talk economy with me?" After seemingly getting a slightly colder response from Podesta than expected, Harwood put on the hard sale saying "With me, it will be the kind of substantive, deep, textured conversation about the economy she wants."
But apparently the Clinton campaign was not impressed with #HarDwood's ability to "go deep" as Nick Merrill summarized the interview to be "a little less substantive than promised."
Finally, apparently Clinton looked "good" in Newton...
...And "pretty strong" in the March forum with Bernie Sanders...
If there were any doubts at all as to CNBC's chosen candidate in the 2016 presidential race we suspect they've officially been squashed. #HarDwoodForHillary.
