I predicted earlier that a WH threat would become the new badge of honor in journalism.

And WaPo reporter Ron Fournier too...

Why Bob Woodward's Fight With The White House Matters to You
And why I iced a senior Obama White House official.

As editor-in-chief of National Journal, I received several e-mails and telephone calls from this White House official filled with vulgarity, abusive language, and virtually the same phrase that Politico characterized as a veiled threat. “You will regret staking out that claim,” The Washington Post reporter was told.

Once I moved back to daily reporting this year, the badgering intensified. I wrote Saturday night, asking the official to stop e-mailing me. The official wrote, challenging Woodward and my tweet. “Get off your high horse and assess the facts, Ron,” the official wrote.

There are enough people in the media who will defend Obama no matter what he does..they would sell their own mother’s to the devil rather than go against Obama..why..simple..his agenda is their agenda..there are a few honest Journalists still left in this country, like Sharyl Attkinson from CBS News, hopefully some others will look at her and become more honest and see the Obama Administration for what they are, bullies and Communists

So only semi-leftists ( lite side) who confront Bammy and the public with the truth get valid recognition in the Left Scheme Media circles? Whatever-—if it does the trick then so be it.

Obsessive white guilt is what probably blinds and binds as many “low-information” voters (as labeled by Rush Limbaugh) to this failed regime as much as anything. Many people do not want to even hear of any negative statements about Bronco Bama, and they will go to great lengths to discredit any such attempt.

Were the voters more discerning back in the days when the racial makeup of serving Presidents was largely that of Northern European origin? What caused this failure in critical thinking? And is there a way to reverse it through persuasive argument?

Or does the obsession win?

Just heard a Jay Carney soundbite on Rush. He said that Gene Sperling works 20 HOURS A DAY on our economic problems.....

FAIL!

Oh, and just in, Maxine Waters warned today that the sequester could cause “over 170 million jobs” to be lost:

134 million people have jobs in America.

The problem with the majority of the media today is that they believe in the Communist model..most of them grew up in the 60s, believe the hippie Communist garbage..went to schools like Berkeley who taught them to be far left kooks and this is why you have the majority of the media in this country who are liberal..not just liberal, but far left whack jobs. Obama to them is someone who in their mind represents their agenda, Obama despises America, despises Capitalism and wants to destroy it and those leftists in the media agree with him..they created Obama, they made sure he won not once but twice, they will never abandon him no matter what he does or says. Obama already got away with murder(Benghazi) if that had been Bush he would have already been impeached, but since it was Obama they made excuse after excuse for him..one day Obama will really lose it, make a speech that its time to kill Republicans and the media will be silent..they created this monster, they will defend him til the bitter end

I agree with most of your post. This administration certainly represents the 60s ideal (welfare state socialism verging on communism). But I think a few of the more mature journalists are beginning to see the totalitarian beginning to come out from behind the White House curtain.

George Orwell was a man of the Left until he realized that socialism almost always leads to totalitarianism. It's possible Leftist journalists realize that a second civil war really might not advance their Utopian political causes.

I'm sure we all know that the intimidation has been going on regularly ever since Hussein hit the scene. I'm just surprised that it has taken this long to come out into the open.

If there are some good honest journalists out there who really care about reporting the news I hope we see them coming out now because we could really use them. I remember a time when journalists actually reported the NEWS instead of being so utterly biased like they are now..right now we are not seeing journalists, we are seeing the media as puppets for the White House..that is very dangerous..Obama is already a very dangerous and powerful man, top that with the media in his back pocket and its truly scary times. Maybe with Woodward we have a chance to save this country..maybe just maybe some journalists with a soul will see the light and report what is really going on behind the scenes

Liberals have declared victory.
Republicans aren’t even a worry anymore, no need to present a unified front to the peeps.
Now the infighting begins.

Not sure this is absolutely true but could be.

I used my WWII G.I. Bill opportunity to go/attend U.C. Berkeley. I can tell you for sure that although we knew there was a commie faction it was by no means the/a controlling part of university life/influence. I will grant that the environment has changed since but my education at UofC was very much apart from the eatery we vets called the ‘commie kitchen’. I suspect that there are still many of us still alive, perhaps not enough.

The education system is where it starts, too many commie libs teaching our young people, that is why so many young people today register as Dems..its what they are taught..the second they get into these colleges where they are taught by far left teachers they are pretty much brainwashed..we need to get more Conservative teachers teaching the young people of today..and more Conservatives need to become journalists, too many libs controlling the media

There is two things which could be going on here.

A distraction away from another national topic or the beginning of pushing aside of people who are no longer useful.

Let’s remember the Press and Clinton. He got the royal treatment from them too - now Lanny Davis????

Just received this email - a good reminder of how the Press never vets or criticizes Democrats.
____________________________________________________________

Bill & Hillary, a lovely couple(?,) got about $12 million for their to-be written memoirs. Here’s some help for them since their memories are getting old.

BILL CLINTON’S MILITARY CAREER

Bill Clinton registers for the draft on September 08, 1964, accepting all contractual conditions of registering for the draft. Selective Service Number is 326 46 228.
Bill Clinton classified 2-S on November 17, 1964.

Bill Clinton reclassified 1-A on March 20, 1968.

Bill Clinton ordered to report for induction on July 28, 1969.

Bill Clinton refuses to report and is not inducted into the military.

Bill Clinton reclassified 1-D after enlisting in the United States Army Reserves on August 07, 1969, under authority of COL. E. Holmes.

Clinton signs enlistment papers and takes oath of enlistment.

Bill Clinton fails to report to his duty station at the University of Arkansas ROTC, September 1969.

Bill Clinton reclassified 1-A on October 30, 1969, as enlistment with Army Reserves is revoked by Colonel E. Holmes and Clinton now AWOL and subject to arrest under Public Law 90-40 (2) (a) - registrant who has failed to report...remain liable for induction.

Bill Clinton’s birth date lottery number is 311, drawn December 1, 1969, but anyone who has already been ordered to report for induction is INELIGIBLE!

Bill Clinton runs for Congress (1974), while a fugitive from justice under Public Law 90-40.

Bill Clinton runs for Arkansas Attorney General (1976), while a fugitive from justice.

Bill Clinton receives pardon on January 21, 1977, from President Carter.

Bill Clinton becomes the FIRST PARDONED FEDERAL FELON ever to serve as President of the United States.

All these facts come from Freedom of Information requests, public laws, and various books that have been published, and have not been refuted by Clinton.

After the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, President Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.

After the 1995 bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed five U.S. military personnel, Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.

After the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed 19 and injured 200 U.S. military personnel, Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.

After the 1998 bombing of U.S. embassies in Africa, which killed 224 and injured 5,000, Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.

After the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, which killed 17 and injured 39 U.S. sailors, Clinton promised that those responsible be hunted down and punished.

Maybe if Clinton had kept those promises, an estimated 3,000 people in New York and Washington, DC, who are now dead would be alive today.

THINK ABOUT IT! It is a strange turn of events. Hillary gets $8 Million for her forthcoming memoir. Bill gets about $12 Million for his memoir yet to be written. This from two people who spent 8 years being unable to recall anything about past events while under oath.

Sincerely,
Cdr. Hamilton McWhorter USN (ret)

P.S.
Please forward this to as many people as you can! We don’t want this woman to even THINK of running for President!!!!!

So the current occupants of the white house are going to admit that they applied fascist tactics and threatened to use the full force and power of the federal government against a citizen in complete violation of the law and of the first amendment, and are going to give a speech on TV in which they collectively resign?

Not a chance. The crowd that refused to enforce the law with the black panthers and voter intimidation, and broke the law in “fast and furious” is going to go on acting like a spoiled emperor and his minions.

The Clinton wing of the Evil Party may be looking ahead to 2016—they may sense that Obama will crash and burn and want some distance from him. They know who their candidate will be...they don’t know who Valerie will tell Obama to support, other than it won’t be Hillary.

...could be going on here. A distraction away from another national topic...

I said nearly the same thing on a related thread today:

My cynical mind is reading this kerfuffle as nothing more than the White House and their sycophants in the SRM creating a big nothing burger to divert attention away from other, more serious issues, such as the release of criminal illegal aliens from federal custody.
