What a great guy CNBC’s John Harwood is. He sees a friend in trouble, and he swoops in to rescue the damsel in the distress. In this case, the damsel is the team of Bill and Hillary Clinton.
When Bill Clinton was confronted about Monica Lewinsky in his TODAY Show interview, he got visibly pissy and defensive, taking shots at the media and his interviewer for not understanding that he’s the real victim in all this. And John Harwood seems to sympathize with Clinton’s plight — and, unlike the rest of us rubes, Harwood understands that media’s harsh treatment of the Clintons over the years played a major role in Hillary’s 2016 election defeat:
perhaps any of us with the experiences in political life of Bill and Hillary Clinton would feel the same suspicion/anger/bitterness toward the media. in any case it contributed to her 2016 defeat for the presidency https://t.co/YJvxYXJZ3C

How does John Harwood look at himself in the mirror without bursting into uncontrollable fits of laughter?
You can’t be serious

And shameless, too! Don’t forget shameless!
Ahh yes my favourite "Clinton's as victim" narrative perpetuated by a Democratic operative, who plays a media personality, on cable tv.
Life is so hard, when you sold your professional credibility (Harwood didn't start with much) and integrity to the losing team. ??? https://t.co/M6zDXVY8EV

He was already there.
There are hacks (Democrats pretending to be journalists) and then there is John Harwood. Maybe the most extreme case of a Democrat operative playing journalism….. https://t.co/al6ddJTrl2
