CNBC Moderator John Harwood on Twitter: We Need More ‘Ugly, Raucous’ Debates

CNBC’s John Harwood tweeted out a story Monday arguing that the presidential debate needed more “ugly, raucous” debates like the one he moderated.

Harwood himself was the target of a great deal of criticism in the aftermath of the GOP debate. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, to give one example, retweeted a tweet that called the CNBC anchor a “dipshit.”

More than a few in the conservative Twitterverse mocked Harwood’s tweet, calling it self-serving and “just sad.” Many pointed out that as a liberal website that received money from CNBC’s parent company, Vox’s take was hardly objective.
