It’s going to be interesting to see if Woodward folds on this.

Wonder if the current crop of “journalists” in the MSM are beginning to realize that being sycophants to a dangerous petulant narcissist like Obama, was a bit silly and they will be rightly mocked and ridiculed forever?

The White House attitude is to punish reporters they don’t like, and “Allahpundit” can’t figure out what it means. Keep giving the Obama cult the benefit of the doubt, while they keep slandering you anyway they can.

I wish some people would wake up.

The Obama Cult is a threat to freedom and the Constitution. Period.

Yeah, sure, all these reporters still SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER after such threats from the Obama WH.

And that is why we had so many journalists expose Obama thugary and scandals and corruptions and yada yada yada .....

Give me a F^&* break.

“You’ll regret” coming from the administration is not scary at all. Right?

I have no dog in this fight. The more Obama and his gang fight with the press, the better. I’m rooting for both sides here.

At some point near the end of his reign the media will draw out the long knives to see who can make a name for themselves...

It will be interesting to say the least...

Obama will be like a Tom Turkey ready to carve up....

Sissy Mathews will cry...

"All we can say is: We know more than a few reporters have received similar e-mails from White House officials. Yelling has also been known to happen."

"More than few"? At the very least, unprofessional in the extreme. Using email to do same reveals an administration run by mouth-breathing knuckle draggers, accustomed to punching sheep. Yell at me. Threaten me. The rules go out the window. Do it by email. I respond. Immediately. In person. Better talk fast, and be polite about it.

There is no justification for a government threatening anyone - the press or anyone else. If it doesn’t want to be embarrassed or caught in a lie, then they need to start behaving like adults (admittedly tough for this bunch of bandits).

The way to stop it is easy: Identify the Names involved.

My prayer is that a Bernstein steps forward. We all know there is so much more the msm has hidden from the public. Maybe Woodward had his eyes opened to the threat this administration really is.

Tension between presidents, presidential aides, and the people who cover them is inherent and has been around as the government itself.

B.S. In the days when we had an adversarial press interested in defending the people's 'right to know' ( that would be anytime a Republican occupied the White House) the above would be true.

What's different today is that the press operates as an extension of this administration. They've beome their propoganda oregan and their STILL treated like crap by obama and the STILL keep kissing his arse!

Bob Woodward is at the very pinnacle of journalism in DC and he's treated this way by a WH aide? I wonder why. Is it because they're afraid of him or because they so unafraid they actually hold him in contempt?

That was definintely a threatening email. When somebody goes on to say that its “Just their sincere advice” thats compounding the “you are going to regret this” carpola.

This is an “Earth to reporters” moment. Democrats are ruthless. Has anyone noticed how they will destroy with racism, any minority who dares utter anything conservative? You have to live in fear of personal destruction, IRS or criminal charges when the democrats hold power. This is well known on all levels.

To contrast and compare, just when did George Bush threaten the press?

A White House official has a yelling exchange with a renowned WP reporter. He realizes he may have overstepped the line. He writes an apology letter but includes a statement that Woodward would “regret” his story on how the sequester came about. Sperling stabs Woodward with a smile on his face while serving him cake and ice cream. The DC is full of nasty people.

It’s not scary how many reporters have been threatened. It’s scary how few. All the rest are such total sychophants the White House doesn’t believe they can get more fawning.

Wasn’t sure about the level of the threat in email until I learned the WH responded.
That they responded at all speaks volumes.
