    Re: White House threatens Bob Woodward

    Digging into one of his famous folders, Woodward said the tirade was followed by a page-long email from the aide, one of the four or five administration officials most closely involved in the fiscal negotiations with the Hill. “I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today,” the official typed. “You’re focusing on a few specific trees that give a very wrong impression of the forest. But perhaps we will just not see eye to eye here. … I think you will regret staking out that claim.”
    I'm still waiting for anyone on the right to acknowledge this and then explain how this is threatening. Every other claim or argument here is predicated on the belief that the White House actually threatened Woodward. It doesn't matter who wrote the email- the email itself is half apology and half political disagreement. I've received worse threats from my mother while planning a vacation.

    If Woodward actually felt threatened, he'd bite the hand that fed him and start naming names. I don't think he will.

    Woodward is what he he is.

    The man makes a living by putting himself in the spotlight.

    I don't even need one. Because I don't think that the email in question was a threat.

    I understand the title was generated by the software, but it still breaks the guidelines. I have reported it, so we will see what happens.
    Well ofcourse you have.

    Too bad you couldn't report Bob Woodward to the Mods.

    Maybe then he would stop talking about the Sequester.

    The reporter that received the email felt it was. And we have the name of the person that sent it.

    So you are saying that Nixon was a good guy who should not have answered for his crimes?

    The goal post is exactly where I left it on page four. How is that email at all a threat? I can feel threatened by a lot of things, and I can claim to feel threatened by a lot more. That doesn't make every loud noise a threat.

    And I must have missed learning who sent it. Care to enlighten me?

    If a boss asks a women out on a date and after she says no, he says she will regret that, every jury in the country would take it as a veiled threat. Maybe it really wasn't, but that is not how the person receiving those words would read them.

    I don't fault a reporter for feeling it was a threat.

    In the link, and in post 89 in huge font. you can't miss it.
