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?
uh oh.....THIS is gonna teach Barry not to leave them sitting in the WH press room while he jets off to play golf with Tiger Woods.
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...
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.
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.
“Gee, Mr. Woodward, at your age and with your illness unfortunately the latest guidelines will not approve that life saving drug for you.”
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.
