Wikileaks Podesta hack reveals CNBC’s John Harwood was a hack for Dems

Legal Insurrection  "You may remember the October 28, 2015 Republican Debate held by CNBC.
"Memory as in bad memory. The moderators were abysmal, but John Harwood stood out as the worst among them. National Review wrote at the time:
The emerging consensus from tonight’s CNBC debate is that the moderators were rude. John Harwood in particular distinguished himself by not just asking tough questions, but asking them in the most insulting possible way — interrupting candidates mid-reply, offering his own editorializing, and shouting down candidates attempting to defend themselves.
Chris Christie seemed to capture the mood of the candidates and the crowd when — angry at Harwood’s hectoring — he finally said “even in New Jersey what you’re doing is rude.”

The GOP has a long history of subjecting its candidates to abuse by debate moderators.
From George Stephanopolous to Candy Crowley, debates are a time for network journalists to earn their battle badges by damaging Republicans.
And the GOP just sucks it up and takes it.
So why would the CNBC moderators have thought the most recent Republican Primary debate should be any different?
CNBC did what it thought it was supposed to do — mock and snicker at Republican candidates. Belittle them. Dismiss their intelligence and portray them as kooks.'
