Obama Regime Accused Of Threatening Journalists Who Challenge Dear Leader’s Policies (Audio / Video)

Bob Woodward: ‘Very Senior’ White House Official Warned Me I’d ‘Regret’ Attacking Obama Over The Sequester – The Blaze

Appearing on CNN Wednesday, the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward said a “very senior person” at the White House warned him that he would “regret doing this,” referring to his outspoken criticism of President Barack Obama’s handling of the impending forced cuts known as the sequester.

“I think they’re confused,” Woodward told CNN host Wolf Blitzer. Woodward apparently went on to criticize Obama further over the sequester the same day he received the warning from the White House.

“It makes me very uncomfortable for the White House to be telling reporters, you are going to ‘regret’ doing something that you believe in,” he added. “It’s Mickey Mouse.”

CNN invited a White House official to debate Woodward on-air, but the offer was declined, Business Insider’s Brett LoGiurato reports. Video via Townhall:

TheBlaze’s Becket Adams has more details on the feud between Woodward and the White House:

Bob Woodward on Wednesday accused President Barack Obama of acting with a “kind of madness” in his handling of the automatic spending cuts set to take effect Friday.

He continued, turning his attention to the White House’s recent claim that spending cuts would prohibit it from deploying aircraft carriers to the Persian Gulf.

“Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document?’” Woodward said.

“Or George W. Bush saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to invade Iraq because I can’t get the aircraft carriers I need’ or even Bill Clinton saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to attack Saddam Hussein’s intelligence headquarters,’ as he did when Clinton was president because of some budget document?” he added.

Woodward initially started his fight with the White House after he accused the Obama administration of “moving the goal posts” in its budget negotiations with Republican lawmakers. He also reported in his book, “The Price of Politics,” that the automatic spending cuts were actually Obama’s idea – and now he wants to avoid them at all costs.

Former Clinton Aide Turned Columnist Says White House Threatened His Publication, Too – Daily Caller

A day after The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward insisted he was “threatened” by a senior White House official, a former Clinton aide turned columnist says his publication was once threatened by the Obama White House as well.

Lanny Davis, formerly a special counsel to President Bill Clinton, told WMAL’s Brian Wilson and Larry O’Connor that a White House official once threatened to have The Washington Times’ White House credentials revoked over columns Davis had written.

Davis says his editor “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.”

The White House aide allegedly told Times editor John Solomon, “that if he continued to run my [Davis’] columns, he would lose, or his reporters would lose their White House credentials.”

Last week, National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling warned Woodward in an email that the reporter would “regret staking out” the claim that Obama’s “asking for revenues is moving the goal post,” according to copies of the emails obtained by Politico.

Woodward characterized that statement as a threat in interviews on Thursday.

Ron Fournier: Yeah, I Got The Abusive Treatment From The WH And The Same ‘You Will Regret This’ Threat – Breitbart

Some genius said this last night:

………………………………………………………………………………

I think there is a push to kill this story before other reporters realize they have a story if they report their own experiences.
………………………………………………………………………………

Now National Journal reporter Ron Fournier – whom I believe to be a liberal in good standing with his paperwork in order – drops this tidbit:

As editor-in-chief of National Journal, I received several e-mails and telephone calls from this White House official filled with vulgarity, abusive language, and virtually the same phrase that Woodward called a veiled threat. “You will regret staking out that claim,” The Washington Post reporter was told.

Once I moved back to daily reporting this year, the badgering intensified. I wrote Saturday night, asking the official to stop e-mailing me. The official wrote, challenging Woodward and my tweet. “Get off your high horse and assess the facts, Ron,” the official wrote.

I wrote back:

“I asked you to stop e-mailing me. All future e-mails from you will be on the record – publishable at my discretion and directly attributed to you. My cell-phone number is… If you should decide you have anything constructive to share, you can try to reach me by phone. All of our conversations will also be on the record, publishable at my discretion and directly attributed to you.” I haven’t heard back from the official. It was a step not taken lightly because the note essentially ended our working relationship.

Given that Woodward is now being called old and brokedown by David Pflouffe, and the Juicebox Mafia has picked up the “senile” message they’re putting out there… I would in fact say efforts are being made to insure Woodward “regrets” having correctly reported Obama’s ownership of the sequester.

Incidentally, credit where credit’s due: Sexton has stayed on this subject – ownership of the sequester – when most people (such as myself) considered it not interesting enough to stay on.

It was not a fair fight, not at all. Video via Hot Air Note that Lanny, as most Libs do, whines and interrupts, beating the point that the president supports the “public option” on health care. That is dispelled at  Hot Air. Michelle really looked bored though, she really needs some tougher challenges. I mean Lanny Davis? Come on! I had tougher debate challenges in college.
