    What does that prove other than a top Obama official contacted Woodward and screamed at him ?

    For what ? Reporting the truth ? I mean screw the E-Mail, I'm wondering what was said in the shouting match.

    You think its ok for a President to bully the media ? Threaten ?

    Woodward, who's been around for decades seems pretty clear he was threatened.

    He, is exponentially more qualified to know if it was a threat than you are.

    would someone please point out said threat
    Woodward came forward claiming he felt threatened. the link in this thread includes the portion of the email he felt was a threat. not sure what more you need here to come to your own conclusions.

    Who's more qualified to determine whether or not a threat was made ? Him or you ? Him.

    Why did a top BO advisor call up and challenge Woodward and then scream at him.

    Maybe the ACTUAL threat was in the shouting match.

    How much you wanna bet. Woodwards already trying to detach Obama from this. Yea right

    Re: White House threatens Bob Woodward

    Is the left actually trying to impune the integrity of Bob Woodward ? To prove Obama isn't a narcistic bully ?

    I'm a million miles away from this, but it would depend on what he would get to make him feel regret. Mostly, this doesn't make Woodward look so good, unless we get a fuller picture of the shouting match.

    Not quite. There's tough voices in many administrations. It wasn't long ago that we were hearing similar "problems" with the Bush administration (even though it probably goes with the territory of covering politicians and more specifically the President's administration).

    Do you know who Woodward is? His history ? His godlike status in the world of journalism ?

    He use to be their hero.

    But what I think is going on here is that the threat Woodward seemed to be so upset about was actually made in the shouting match.

    The BO official admits to raising his voice, things got heated and threats get made.

    Because whats in the E-mail doesn't rise to Woodwards initial claim as a "kind of madness ".

    Being shouted at and threatened by a White House Higher up ?

    Its interesting that the admission and apology was posted too.

    Re: White House threatens Bob Woodward

    Yea I'm sure of it now. THE threat that Woodward equated to madness was recieved before the E-Mail.

    The White House Apointee admits raising his voice.

    Woodward is just trying to back out of it although he sti contends a threat was made.

    Not even a Obama appointee is dumb enough to threatdn someone via E-Mail
