WASHINGTON -- Bob Woodward isn't the only person who's received threats for airing the Obama administration's dirty laundry. It seems anyone is a potential target of the White House these days - even former senior members of the Clinton administration.
A day after Woodward's claim that a senior White House official had told him he would "regret" writing a column criticizing President Obama's stance on the sequester, Lanny Davis, a longtime close advisor to President Bill Clinton, told WMAL's Mornings on the Mall Thursday he had received similar threats for newspaper columns he had written about Obama in the Washington Times.
Davis told WMAL that his editor, John Solomon, "received a phone call from a senior Obama White House official who didn't like some of my columns, even though I'm a supporter of Obama. I couldn't imagine why this call was made." Davis says the Obama aide told Solomon, "that if he continued to run my columns, he would lose, or his reporters would lose their White House credentials."

Where's the pwoof Lanny? Where's the pwoof? Show us the pwoof!
For the media it is always all about access. The DBM sold their soul to The One early on in exchange for access. Seems like that deal with the devil isnt working out so well for them now. They will not be able to control this monster they helped create.

This is hilarious coming from old Lanny, who’s one of the Chicago outfit’s biggest apologists.
If these leaks continue the alphabets will have no choice but to apply milk and make soup.
hmmmm.....could the Clinton Machine finally be springing into action to take its revenge?
Is it too cynical to wonder if Hillary’s campaign has begun?
In a sane world, the whole white house would be emptied out and the occupants would be out on the street looking for legitimate employment.
“that if he continued to run my columns, he would lose, or his reporters would lose their White House credentials”
Exactly, no audience with the supreme leader, no job. I am sure they all got the lesson. See this guy does not want an antagonistic press. Frankly, the news people, whores that they are, now see some of the real damage this guy has inflicted upon the country and perhaps are trying to distance themselves from having their lip prints on his ass.
WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM TOTALITARIANS??????? you USELESS propagandist POS.
By George! Now THAT's a thought!
Unchallenged arrogance at the seat of power naturally loses touch with reality.
The fall is gonna be HARD, for “The One”.
I’m kinda split. On one hand, they sure did help create the monster, but they can also destroy him by suddenly getting honest. Whereas the Right already knows the MSM is full of crap 99% of the time, the sheep on the left think the MSM is honest and only Fox is lying.
If the MSM starts getting even half way legit, Obama disintegrates with no means of support. Because as soon as the MSM gets into a civil war, he loses his propaganda outlets. And this he has no support.
MSNBC against the rest is not a winning proposition.
First Woodward, then Attkisson, now this dweeb?
I’m feeling a “Look at Me!” movement here. I wonder who the next presstitute to be threatened by the White Hut will be?
That's exactly what I was thinking. The Clinton's have a lot of bottled up rage against Obama. This time, they are going to go all out and it's going to be take-no-prisoners.
We might even see Obama’s real birth certificate or why he uses a SS number registered to someone else. The Clinton's still have friends in high places and spread through out the government. The Clinton's are scary too. Hopefully, each side takes the other down.
Then SloJoe hires a food tester...
Really? Not in jail for treason?
Looks like Elmer Fudd has gone off the deep end. Guess Bugs Bunny finally got to him.
The only threat Lanny is that he would be that he would put you to sleep listening to him.
People need to break out that video of Obama cornering and physically intimidating Joe Lieberman on the Senate floor during the 2008 campaign, when Lieberman was supporting McCain.
Agreement, this would be best case. Maybe deep throat is hiding in the shadows. One female, one male and collaborating?
At some point even high profile useful idiots become expendable.
I didn’t hear the statement by L Davis, BUT the sound byte that Chris Plante is running now has me ‘waiting for the other shoe to drop’ and have him follow up that the “W” White House tried to ‘shut him down’.
BTW anyone know C Plantes email?
I don’t tweet or twit or whatever vowel may fit in between
t w and t and I can’t find it on the MAL web site...
But, but....I thought they became fast friends. Didn’t you see the 60 Minutes love fest?/s
Old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill every time. Obama is no match for her.
If they are threatening well-known libs like Woodward and Davis, makes you wonder what threats have been made against congressmen, senators and SC justices. Maybe they haven’t dared to speak out and have buckled under the threats. Just a thought...
Obama finished paying off Hilary’s campaign debt of $20 million. It took four years to do it, but he kept her muzzled. Her price is $333,333.33 a month.
Now she’s free and back to status quo.
Busting rocks in Leavenworth would be more appropriate for the current crew.
The Chicago Way. The country has been taken over by thugs for the biggest “bust-out” in history. A large-scale version of what happens to a bar when it is taken over by thugs who use all its credit to buy stuff for themselves and then dump
it as a bankrupt wreck after its credit is exhausted.
Ahhhhhh...my first thought too.
I would find it hard to laugh and puke at the same time.
Back during his Clinton WH days, we called him Lackey Davis. Can’t even begin to imagine how many people they threatened.
On Drudge now.
Hey, Lanny Davis. Names, or it didn’t happen. Same thing I told Woodward. If these threats happened, and you’re too intimidated to give the name of who issued them, then I’d say they worked. You guys are acting like a couple of little girls.
Already another copycat "victim".

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 Woodward called 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.

I hope they all come forward.
And Lanny Davis, too. It's on Drudge today.
Woodward, Attkisson, Davis and Fournier. That’s four so far in the last 24 hours.
I guess the real question is how many gerbalists HAVE NOT been threatened by the White Hut?
The liberal media being EXPOSED before our very eyes.
The Ceausescus must be feeling just a little bit uneasy right now.
Typical Axelrod MO: He is a master of digging dirt to the point of having friendly justices open sealed divorce records: For example:
Blair Hull in 2008 primary taken out by allegations from sealed divorce records. Hull was leading up in multi person primary including Dear Leader until some pretty bad allegations the week before the election came out. Thus Dear Leader wins primary in 2004
Jack Ryan taken out after Chicago Tribune (aka Libune) where Axelrod worked obtained sealed divorce records which had some nasty stuff. Ryan was actually favored to beat Dear Leader in Senate election. Ryan backed out of race and Dear Leader romped Alan Keyes
Herman Cain taken out in primaries by sexual harassment charges. Isnt it a coincidence the main accuser who was bound by confidentiality lived in the same builiding and maybe even the same floor as Axelrod. Another rival taken out
SOP in Chicago. The raised nail gets hammered down
Lanny Davis is a decent person.I never agreed with his defense of Bill Clinton, but he was always a gentleman.
