As if the myth of the objective media had not already by ripped to shreds by past revelations of media bias that have rocked the 2016 presidential campaign, the CNBC reporter who asked the Clinton campaign for questions he could use for an upcoming interview with Jeb Bush has just indicted his fellow media outlets by claiming that his actions are common practice.

On Sunday, WikiLeaks revealed that on Sept. 21, 2015, CNBC reporter John Harwood reached out to Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta when seeking questions to ask then-Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush.

“What should I ask Jeb in Speakeasy interview tomorrow?” wrote Harwood, who moderated the GOP debate in October 2015.

Harwood did not directly comment on the revelation, but used his Twitter account to portray this as common practice in the media.

Past WikiLeaks emails have shown that Harwood consistently reached out to the Clinton campaign throughout the campaign, complementing the candidate and the campaign staff from time to time.

Harwood was not the only journalist helped by the Clinton campaign.

In an email from April 25, DNC Research Director Lauren Dillon asked for ideas for an interview to be conducted by CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer.

“Wolf Blitzer is interviewing Trump on Tues ahead of his foreign policy address on Wed. … Please send me thoughts by 10:30 AM tomorrow,” she wrote.

“CNN said the interview was cancelled as of now but will keep the questions for the next one 🙁 Good to have for others as well,” she later wrote.

Three days later, Dillon informed staffers that CNN was looking for questions to ask Sen. Ted Cruz.

The revelations also follow WikiLeaks releases that showed Donna Brazile, currently the chair of the DNC, leaked questions to the Clinton campaign in advance of a CNN town hall. Brazile was a CNN contributor at the time.
