Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a “very senior person” at the White House warned him in an email that he would “regret doing this,” the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.
CNN host Wolf Blitzer said that the network invited a White House official to debate Woodward on-air, but the White House declined.
“I think they’re confused,” Woodward said of the White House’s pushback on his reporting.
So now the “most transparent administration ever” is threatening reporters who tell the truth about them.
I’m not making any predictions but this is the kind of thing that can be a game changer. If the media turns on Obama he’s toast and they don’t like it when one of their own gets attacked.
