    Don't try to confuse the issue by introducing facts.

    Bob Woodward peaked early in life.

    He has gone downhill since Watergate.

    "Measurable cerebral activity is virtually absent" from his books after Watergate sez Joan Didion

    Woodward makes a lot of stuff up.

    I take whatever the guy says with several grains of salt.
    I was certain there was a squid in there somewhere. I took Latin back when it was still a living language, and subsequently noted that it wasn't in wide use in the construction industry anymore. I would note that when one hits a journalistic home run early in one's career, there's always a crowd looking for one every time afterwards, and anything less is a disappointment. Spoiled people, those folks. That in no way diminishes the veracity of his comments regarding the sequester. That Woodward feels threatened is a completely subjective response, but when a senior WH official tells you that you will regret something, he or she generally means it.

    You probably meant to say 'impugn'. Check a dictionary.

    Who ever said that Bob Woodward had any integrity?

    Re: White House threatens Bob Woodward

    What is most scary is we are seeing a President suppressing a right granted by the constitution by threats and intimidation, and by suppressing that right he was able to remain in power
    this is not an isolated incident there has been more then 1 report about threats and intimidation from the white house there has been 3 others 2 from today, just look what they have done to Fox News

    democracy does not work unless the media is allowed to do their job

    There wouldn't have been any reason to as he was never threatened to begin with.

    a threat ? Oh hell no there's no threat.

    A reporter being told " your'e going to regret ...." anything by a top WH official when he posted a true story is a non-issue.

    Completely a non issue. I mean if Rumsfeld had said the same to Woodward or even if Cheney had said something you guys would be here, denouncing Woodwards claim and sticking up for the high level WH official right ?

    If it was just an isolated incident it can be rightfully shrugged off but there has been many examples of threats intimidation and suppression to the media by this white house

    I’m sorry, but that you accept one piece of info exclusively is obvious confirmation bias.
    What we have is Woodward saying one thing in an email and another thing on Fox News.

    As long as it sells the Washington Post, it's all good.

    I don't recall ever hearing Bob Woodward say that he regretted anything.

    Might have happened, but I don't recall it.

    Maybe he'll end up regretting what he said recently.

    Me, I'm not worried about it.
