    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
    the madness line is based on Obama claiming these budget issues demands he keep an Aircraft carrier docked

    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.
    Well, considered his response back the the WH read like he's saying, "No harm done; no worries, mate." I'd say, he had no problem with it until he saw an opportunity to drum up some controversy.

    BTW: Since when are Right Wingers big defenders of the free press? Must be something new because you guys went bananas in 2003 &4 when any journalist said anything negative about Bush-Cheney and the folly called invading Iraq.

    Did you defend Phil Donahue and Bill Maher when they were fired for exercising free speech? How about when Cheney's lacky outed CIA Agent Valarie Plume after her husband wrote an op-ed for NYT, were you defending her, calling for Cheney's head?

    free speech protects us from government intrusion, not from employers looking to prevent bad publicity.

    Why do so many liberals get that wrong?

    Are you talking about the same media that broke this story in favor of Woodward?

    Was Woodward jailed or prevented from exercising his free speech?
