This thing with Bob Woodward has gone viral! The legendary WaPo associate editor and journalist who came to fame during the Watergate scandal has now hit the headlines by being the first reporter in the liberal mainstream media to dare openly criticize Barack Obama. And now he has company!
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.” [More]
How about because they’re thugs, Lanny? See, you don’t just get to be Barry’s friend. You get to march lockstep with him… or else.
This should be a HUGE wake up for the Beltway and New York media who created this monster.
Wait! That’s not the story at all! This whole thing is “No big deal,” says Tucker Carlson.
Now they’re frantically trying to convince us this isn’t a story. Now they’re going after Woodward, calling him a diva and a tired old man and whatever else they can think of, even after he tried to distance Obama himself from it. And Davis admits that he didn’t say anything about it until now. But their instinct to protect Obama won’t do them any good. They are now the enemy. [More]
Oops! Looks like someone didn’t get the memo.
By the way, Tucker, the Woodward threat was made by Obama economic advisor Gene Sperling, over the phone — the “apology” was made via email.
Let me see? Who do I believe, Tucker Carlson, or Bob Woodward? Hmmm. That’s Tucker, with a U-C-K-E-R, right?
