    Everyone believes what they want to believe.

    That's why this whole conversation is pretty much a total waste of time.

    Lol.... wut? Confirmation bias? Confirmation bias demands that the sources be ambiguous. There is nothing ambiguous about the e-mail. It wasn't a threat.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    the source is ambiguous. If a boss asks a women out and then informs her she will regret her decision, the issue of harassment is ambiguous.

    Woodward claims he was threatened.

    I would like to hear an explanation for why he did not mention this threat in his reply, and instead did it later.

    That is the real issue. But to immediately denounce his feelings shows confirmation bias.

    Woodward doesn't strike me as a guy who scares easy.

    He'll be back to the White House.

    Woodward is just trying to sell newspapers and himself.

    I heard the WH didn't know that someone dissed Bob Woodward. And Obama knew nothing about releasing those illegal immigrants from prison either.

    nothing wrong with personal beliefs.

    I would like to see some more details though if that's OK with you.
