John Harwood leaves CNN amid news channel changes

THE ANGELS — CNN White House correspondent John Harwood said he is leaving the news channel, an abrupt departure that comes amid other CNN changes.

“Today is my last day on CNN,” Harwood said in a tweet posted on Friday. He said he was proud of the work and called himself “lucky to serve the best in American media,” including stints with the St. Petersburg Times, Wall Street Journal, NBC and CNN.

“Looking forward to hearing what’s next,” he said on Twitter.

“We appreciate John’s work covering the White House and wish him all the best,” CNN said in a statement.

Last month, CNN canceled its weekly media analysis show “Reliable Sources” after three decades on the air, and host Brian Stelter left the network. The show appeared to be an early casualty in CNN’s effort to be less politically confrontational, a priority of Chris Licht, who became the network’s president and CEO in the spring, and his boss, David Zaslav, a company director. parent Warner Bros. Discovery. .

Harwood came to CNN in 2020 from CNBC, where he was chief White House correspondent.

About two hours before Harwood announced he was leaving CNN, he was on the air discussing President Joe Biden’s speech on Thursday, in which Biden called former President Donald Trump an extremist gift to the nation.

Harwood said that Biden’s “central point in that political speech about the threat to democracy is true. Now, that is something that is not easy for us as journalists to say. We are brought up to believe that there are two different political parties with different points of view, and we do not take sides in honest disagreements between them.

“But that’s not what we’re talking about. These are not honest disagreements. The Republican party right now is run by a rogue demagogue,” Harwood said, in part.
