FTA: But is Woodward just the beginning?

Yes, who knows how many oppressed journalists are having polite discussions thrown at them? WHERE IS OUR FIRST AMENDMENT, OBAMA.

So now we have Bob Woodward and Lanny Davis saying the White House has threatened them

Saying it doesn't make it so.

Neither of those guys was threatened.

I don't know.  We don't have a complete transcript of everything said within the White House in the past week, complete transcriptions of everyone who works at the White House for the last week, or copies of every single e-mail sent to or from someone working in the White House for the past week.  I think that's more than enough evidence to say for certain that Obama physically threatened Lanny Davis and we're just going to have to impeach him.

That's just how sneaky Sequesterack Fartbama is. He knew that if they wrote that email to Woodward, then Woodward would cry wolf only to have the whole thing blow up in his face, thereby discrediting all those other times they really, totally for sure did threaten journalists. We're through the looking glass, following the money all the while studying it out. Be afraid, be very afraid. The Repatriation Camps are just about built. Do not get in any unmarked vans, even if they have bacon.... or watermelon. Or watermelon flavored bacon

Hopefully the WH releases transcripts of all these so-called threats proving them to be altogether benign and really take the teeth out of the ridiculous allegations and turn even more people against these hysterical howler monkeys.

It's time to get work done, not be idiots playing he-said she-said.

The one thing I trust about my government is if they really wanted to shut you up they wouldn't simply threaten you, you'd just disappear.

Then again, they couldn't even plant WMDs in Iraq so maybe I'm placing too much faith in the government's ability to be nefarious. I think their heart is in it, mind you but maybe they lack in the execution.

Wikipedia: "Davis is currently a Fox News Contributor and has a column called "Purple Nation" that appears regularly in The Hill, The Huffington Post, FoxNews.com, The Daily Caller, and Newsmax.  "

Well, okay, so this guy is less of a journalist and more of a Dick Morris type.
 
2013-02-28 03:45:40 PM  
Correction: Woodward didn't actually inspire people to become journalists. He inspired them to attack Republicans and protect Democrats. They learned the wrong lesson from Watergate.

Pointless. Word has it that Obama taking another trip back in his marvelous machine to prevent the questions by Davis and Woodward from even being asked. This whole thread as we know it will cease to exist except in some long-dead alternate timeline.

I was thinking that these two should be taken into protective custody before something bad happens to them. We could hold them at Gitmo, where they would be SAFE!!! At least until we get around to closing Gitmo.

that the Times would suffer limited access to White House officials and might have its White House credentials revoked

Yeah, that's not a threat. The White House certainly doesn't have to issue press credentials to anyone who asks, they reserve them for legitimate journalists.

Is it even possible for a Farklib kool-aid guzzler to be even remotely critical of anything this obviously corrupt and incompetent administration does?  It is scary as hell.

Update: USA Today reporter: "I know more than a few reporters who've gotten White House e-mails like the one Woodward got." Okay, it's a trend.

Ohmygod, a trend of White House staffers being super friendly and apologetic to people they disagree with and giving them friendly professional advice. Impeachment!

Update: Noah Rothman puts it even better: "The only opinion that matters as to whether Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward was threatened by the White House or not is Bob Woodward's."

That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. I think the White House staffer should say he felt threatened by Woodward and see if he gets the same benefit of the doubt.

So wait, we get a bunch of Republican lobbying firms ACTUALLY threatening Republican congressfolk who voted for the VAWA, but now it's the DEMOCRATS threatening people?

That is some of the FASTEST projection turnaround yet!

I'm old enough to remember when the White House would out your CIA agent wife in retaliation instead sending obsequious e-mails.

Well that's a steaming load.  We can't form our own conclusions based on the emails?  Bullshiat.

The original emails, and especially Woodward's response, show that there was no threat.  But hey, if Bob Freakin' Woodward feels scared, well then Shut. Down. Everything.

Update2: Wait, we take that back, we weren't idiots, there's other people now with bald assertions that will support us
Update3: Okay... Turns out we're idiots again, but Obama still bad.
Update4: Libs lie, therefore it doesn't matter if we were wrong.
Update5: Facts and context don't matter, words don't have meanings, the only thing that matters is how Bob Woodward FELT about what he read, which we believe to be "threatened."
Update6: We're not butthurt. YOU'RE butthurt.

except it was longtime democrat Richard Armitage who was the one that initially outed Valerie Plame:

In their book Hubris Isikoff and Corn reveal - as both Armitage and syndicated columnist Robert Novak acknowledged publicly later - that Armitage was Novak's "initial" and "primary source" for Novak's July 2003 column that revealed Plame's identity as a CIA operative and that after Novak revealed his "primary source" (Novak's phrase) was a "senior administration official" who was "not a partisan gunslinger,"

I like how most of the many, many updates at the end of the story don't actually provide any new information.  It's just the author coming up with new ideas intermittently and tacking them on to the end of the story.  It's almost like these guys are nothing but a bunch of hacks or something.

This thread is off to a slow start.

Bush did similar things with press access.

Whats different about this is that an Obama aide is using threats to try to block specific discussion of things Obama said and did.

How Nixonian of him. Always thought he had little in common with Lincoln and a lot in common with Nixon.

Goddamnit


From TFA: A lot of mainstream journalists bought into this, too - reflexively believing anything the great Bob Woodward says.
Of course, Woodward (who was expert at trolling for publicity before the internet even existed), benefits greatly from the publicity (nothing sells books like controversy).


"Um, yeah, so we got played, but LOOK HOW STUPID BOB LIBWARD AND THE LIBERAL LAMESTREAM LIB MEDIA LIBS ARE!!1!  HAHAHAHAHA!!1!stupid libs..."
