CNBC's John Harwood Accuses Ted Cruz of 'Disseminating' Kremlin Propaganda

On Sunday, Texas Senator Ted Cruz appeared on MSNBC’s “Meet The Press,” where he went on to destroy host Chuck Todd and the ridiculous accusations against President Trump. In response, CNBC’s John Harwood accused him of “disseminating” Russian propaganda. This, it seems, is what “unbiased journalism” looks like nowadays.

Senator Cruz did a very good job on MSNBC. Not only did he explain why the accusations against President Trump are unfounded, but he added that Ukraine actually worked with Democrats and the mainstream media to influence the 2016 election — yet nobody’s talking about that.

But Ukraine wasn’t the only country that did so. “On the evidence, Russia clearly interfered in our election,” Cruz told Chuck Todd. “But here is the game the media is playing: because Russia interfered, the media pretends nobody else did. Ukraine blatantly interfered in our election. The sitting ambassador from Ukraine wrote an op-ed blasting Donald Trump during the election season. That is unusual.”

Todd then interrupted and said that the ambassador did so in response to Trump’s statements on Russia, Ukraine, and Crimea. And that’s when Cruz knew he had the liberal host: “So you’re saying they had disagreements with Donald Trump and they wanted Hillary Clinton to get elected.” That is indeed what Todd was suggesting — although he didn’t want to admit it.

Cruz clearly won the exchange with Todd, if for no other reason than because he was willing to admit that both sides — Russia and Ukraine — tried to interfere. In other words, he won based on sound logic and moderation.

Strangely, however, that set off CNBC reporter John Harwood. Instead of giving credit where credit is due, the fake journalist took to Twitter, where he accused Cruz of “disseminating” Russian propaganda. I kid you not:

“Ted Cruz disseminating propaganda fabricated by the Kremlin to weaken the United States,” Harwood wrote.

This is amazing. Liberal journalists, who pretended for years to be neutral and objective, are so filled with hatred for President Trump that they no longer feel the need to even keep up appearances. They’ve gone full radical leftist hack, and they’re darn proud of it.
