RE John Harwood, CNBC Political Report: Tonight Harry Reed was given several minutes free reign amounting to a couple of commercials worth of national TV in which he attempted to exculpate himself re a questionable personal real estate holding and on another matter in which he failed to file proper papers with the Senate Committee on Ethics. He was then permitted to make a counter-charge of low blow by the opposition. No other countervailing view was presented.
All of Whorewoods objectivity then comes to bear when in a followup summary he backs up Harry Reed's thin explanation by telling us as fair arbiter of the facts that "apparently there was a mix up" with the papers that should have been filed with the Senate Committee overseeing such deals.
Good to have somebody who is fair about such things telling us what to think about them, no?
Who is Harry Reed? Or do you mean Harry Reid?
Not to worry - CNBC has a viewership of less than 250K at peak times. Likely nobody saw this as the demo is interested in making and/or keeping money.
I think Harwood is the reporter who is oh so proud of a picture he has of himself interviewing, when he was a young “reporter” for his junior high school newspaper, Robert F. Kennedy - I change channels whenever I see him coming up for a report on CNBC - why waste my time on corrupt information.....
