So CNBC and New York Times “reporter” John Harwood, who was a moderator at one of the Republican debates, point-blank asked Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, “What should I ask Jeb?” He was asking before an interview with then Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush last September, according to the latest Podesta email batch from Wikileaks.

Brit Hume weighed in.
Nothing wrong with talking with the opposition before doing an interview. But "what should I ask?" Good grief. https://t.co/GPuj2Yygzx

This is FAR from the first time something of this nature has been associated with Harwood.

Perhaps, the GOP will someday refuse to participate in interviews and debates where the questioners are so obviously opposed to them and their positions, if not all-out working against them.
