    Did you happen to do this because you have no legs to stand on here?

    Btw, you might want to check the rules yourself.

    As far as I'm concerned, Woodward can either put up or shut up. His citations have never consisted of anything but unnamed "sources" and unidentified 'high ranking officials.' For all anyone knows, it could be the janitor or he made the whole thing up.

    Come on, man. Do you seriously have any doubt about who is running the show at the WH? Do you seriously think a "senior" person in the WH would have the balls to say something like this on his own?

We're talking about one of the most respected journalists of all time and your first impulse is to brush it aside in a nothing-to-see-here manner??

    Because it sounds more spectacular to change the title. Personnally I am surprized they didn't write "Two Large Black Men Confronted Woodward In The Public Restroom And Struck Him On His Head And Stomach".

    It just kind of dresses up the article , that is all.

    I doubt it was the janitor unless janitor is code like plumber was to Nixon. I imagine whatever was said directly or indirectly leads back to this WH cutting off access to reporters who do not report the way they want them to. That has been alluded to in the past that this WH is the worst so far at that. Regardless, I cannot recall any of the details but I am pretty sure Woodward has used this "threatened" card in the past when he came out with a new book.

    Here are the Rules and Guidelines to help you properly use the *Breaking News* forum:

    I - All Forum Rules apply here: DP Forum Rules (Forum Rules)

    II - All Opening Post threads posted in *BN* must have:

    Static link to an article from a bona-fide news organization.
    Dateline within the past 48 hours.
    Exact same title as the cited article.
    Quoted short excerpts from the article.
    Your own unique content to spur discussion.
    The last three guidelines were broken in the OP.

    The WH is acting arrogant in their power. They know there are plenty of cronies on the Far Left who will defend them.

    I know, I know. But the word is NOT in the body of the article or in the title of article.

    I see you trying to justify the word simply because the software generated it.
