He was quite clear in that he did not or would not allow these threats to intimidate him from speaking his mind, but he is also clear he is concerned how younger reporters just starting out would handle such a situation.
there was no threat. lots of embarrassment on woodward's part, howeverGene: You do not ever have to apologize to me. You get wound up because you are making your points and you believe them. This is all part of a serious discussion. I for one welcome a little heat; there should more given the importance. I also welcome your personal advice. I am listening. I know you lived all this. My partial advantage is that I talked extensively with all involved. I am traveling and will try to reach you after 3 pm today. Best, Bob
