“Harwood’s departure comes weeks after former CNN “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter recorded his last show and exited the network,” The Daily Wire reported.
“Stelter’s exit reportedly came at the behest of CNN chief Chris Licht, who took over the network in February after Jeff Zucker’s exit. Licht has reportedly been driving CNN toward adopting a more nonpartisan stance in its news coverage,” it added.

The news also follows changes that have included the departure of CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin.
The changes are part of CNN’s plan to rebound from viewership slides and return to more news and less opinion in its programming.
The move could be a good one for the nation, though we shouldn’t expect a major move to the right from the long-time anti-conservative network.
