CNN White House Correspondent John Harwood Is OUT as News Network Makes Sharp Turn Right


CNN’s John Harwood has left the building.

The top White House correspondent, an outspoken critic of Donald Trump, tweeted his exit this morning.

CNN is falling apart. Under Chris Licht, CNN is making a sharp turn to the right. In the last couple of weeks Licht axed media critic Brian Stelter. Then Jake Tapper tweeted support of Jared Kushner’s book.

Yesterday, Briana Kellar — fighting to keep her job on “New Day” — criticized President Biden for using the Marine marching band during his speech. Viewers went crazy on Twitter complaining that she’d joined the new CNN Zombies.

What”s happening? New CNN owner David Zaslav wants the Fox News viewers. It’s clear he’s put everyone on notice that their jobs are on the line if they don’t step back from being in favor of the world and country continuing to have freedom and democracy and give air to MAGA and other lies.

What a sad state of affairs. Harwood will not be the last exit. Stay tuned…

But PS He has integrity, and that counts for everything!
