Just over an hour before announcing on Twitter his departure from CNN, White House correspondent John Harwood delivered the very kind of opinionated, far-left diatribe which likely prompted new CNN CEO Chris Licht to rid CNN of him. Harwood endorsed President Biden’s “soul of America” speech and denounced Donald Trump and his supporters: On Biden: “The core point he made in that political speech about a threat to democracy is true.”

Harwood defended his loaded language toward those Biden targeted: “We’re brought up to believe that there’s two different political parties with different points of view and we don’t take sides in honest disagreements between them.”But, he maintained, “that’s not what we’re talking about. These are not honest disagreements. The Republican Party right now is led by a dishonest demagogue. Many, many Republicans are rallying behind his lies about the 2020 election and other things as well.”
