NYT/CNBC "Journalist" John Harwood: The Media Is Too Biased In Favor of Trump and Republicans

This being a public spectacle of self-humiliation, Tater was of course involved.

In another blatant display of media bias masquerading as uncomfortably frank objectivity, CNBC editor-at-large John Harwood declared the GOP to be "fundamentally broken" and lamented how journalists are being supposedly too fair in their coverage of the party.

On Sunday, Harwood responded to a tweet from CNNís Brian Stelter, who quoted Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan lamenting how media objectivity gave power to the GOP.

"In an unceasing effort to be seen as neutral, journalists, time after time, fell into the trap of presenting facts and lies as roughly equivalent and then blaming political tribalism for not seeming to know the difference," Sullivan said.

In response, Harwood tweeted: "Good description of the challenge for journalism... hard for reporters to say plainly that the Republican Party, at this point in our history, is fundamentally broken... but it is."

The challenge of journalism is repackaging other people's tweets as cutting-edge insight.
