In the weeks before the Nov. 8 election, a trove of emails and other documentsÂ from the campaign of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee were released by WikiLeaks–emailsÂ showing collusion between some reporters with the now-discredited ‘mainstream’ media andÂ Clinton campaign manager John Podesta, as well as other Democrat operatives.
Now, it seems, many of them have actually been assignedÂ to coverÂ the Trump administration.
Harwood told Podesta to â€œwatch outâ€ for Dr. Ben Carson during the Republican primary. â€œBen Carson could give you real trouble in a general,â€ Harwood warned, including video clips of Carsonâ€™s political positions. As The DC noted further:
In a December 2015 email to Podesta,Â Harwood claimedÂ the Republican Party was â€œveering off the railsâ€ and bragged about provoking Trump during a Republican presidential debate, where he asked Trump if he was running â€œa comic book version of a presidential campaign.â€Â
â€œI imagineâ€¦â€ Harwood titled the email, continuing in the body: â€œâ€¦that Obama feels some (sad) vindication at this demonstration of his years-long point about the opposition party veering off the rails.â€
â€œI certainly am feeling that way with respect to how I questioned Trump at our debate.â€
As CNBCâ€™s chief political correspondent, Harwood will play a central role in the networkâ€™s coverage of the Trump administration.Â
Last monthÂ The New York Times announced it was hiringÂ Politico correspondent Glenn Thrush for White House coverage. Released emails show Thrush actuallyÂ sending stories to Clinton staffers for theirÂ approval before he turned them in. So in other words, he gave the people in power he was supposed to be coveringÂ veto power over his content. No conflict of interest there.
â€œBecause I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to [you],â€ he wrote in an April 30, 2015 email to Podesta, including five paragraphs fromÂ a pieceÂ titled â€œHillaryâ€™s big money dilemma.â€
â€œPlease donâ€™t share or tell anyone I did this,â€ ThrushÂ added. â€œTell me if I fucked up anything.â€
â€œNo problems here,â€ Podesta replied.
If anythingÂ the so-called ‘mainstream media’ proved beyond any shadow of doubt that it is highly partisan, consistently in the corner of Left-wing Democrats, and therefore simply cannot be trusted and should be shunned in favor of the alternative media.
