CNN President Chris Licht has announced plans to make the network less partisan and staff shake ups is a key component to that plan.
Harwood announced his departure via Twitter:
He did not announce a landing spot, which suggests his departure may have been unplanned.
The departure from Harwood follows the swift axing of hyper-partisan media host Brian Stelter from the network, and CNN said in a statement to The Daily Caller, “We appreciate John’s work covering the White House, and we wish him all the best.”
Harwood doesn’t fit the unbiased mold. He openly bashed former President Donald Trump, and asked the Clinton campaign for questions to ask then-presidential candidate Jeb Bush.
