Wolf Blitzer characterized it as a threat. Ask him

An explanation of exactly what this "threat" is would suffice

I found it. I guess the huffy Post even put up the audio.

Blast from the past of the Obama WH threatening and screaming at a CBS reporter.

The 'threat' is misleading. The 'threat' part is a non-story. What happened was that a senior WH official berated Bob freaking Woodward angrily for half an hour to try and force his hand into tossing out his honest opinion of the Obama administration and presenting the Obama-approved narrative. An embarrassment is what it is

I doubt others will follow more likely they'll all gang up and attack Woodward. It's easy for Woodward to do what he's doing cause he's almost 70 years of age and has already made a name for himself.

Dude, if Karl Rove had sent Woodward an email saying that he'd regret his actions, you'd have started six different threads decrying it.

Your willfully obtuse schtick was played long ago.

I'm not even going to waste my time with you... You're just gonna end up being a bitch and deflecting. "We'll, they didn't specify what they would do, so it's not a threat"

The leftist media is completely unrecognizable from when Woodward was in his prime. Just think, we've gone from Woodward to Daily Kos. What a bunch of shrill, hateful malcontents the modern leftist elite has become

ETA: That goes for the right, too. From Buckley to Beck.. This is where people are supposed to say 'smh'

So, in your hyper-enlightened estimation, what does "you will regret doing this" from a "very senior" White House official to an esteemed journalist mean?

And her story was immediately dismissed bc of the forumn. Read the comments. They didn't even bother to wonder if her allegations had merit.

You could be right but, I doubt there is anybody in the Beltway who is more hooked into Government than Bob Woodward. I would say that Dan Rather was as well but his hatred for Bush did him in with his altered news story on Bush's National Guard tour of duty.

Sigh, let me know when this Administration outs Woodward's wife as a CIA operative. If this is just a matter of limiting Woodward's access then he can cry me a river.

You're ok with any administration limiting access for showing disagreement?

Most likely will affect Woodward's access to admin officials IMO

If it were anything more than that I'm sure Woodward would let us know

Holy fricking shite.

Despite the fact she wasn't a deep cover operative, what does that have to do with the price of egg rolls in China?

Seriously, just ignore this ignorant slut

re: Bob Woodward on Wolf Blitzer: WH threatened him



I believe the term 'threat' is being derived from this story because a WH official tried to stop a known tell all reporter from reporting. He went off talking points, how dare he.

So it is a huge embarrassment to the WH that Woodward spoke up. A representative from the POTUS telling a reporter 'they will be sorry', is a threat.
