    My guess is that if he gives up the name that source won't give him any more info in the future.

    I'm not too sure this isn't all circus for the masses.

    Re: White House threatens Bob Woodward

    i think he needs to disclose the alleged email in un-redacted form with the sender's identity attached
    let us see for ourselves if this was truly a threat against the reporter who broke the watergate debacle

    without that evidence i am inclined to believe woodward is trying to misdirect our attention away from his assertion that Obama is responsible for the pending sequester ... something the white house has been responding to, saying that woodward and his allegations are all wet
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Well in that vein... Obama is YOUR elected president and therefore a reflection of you. So by your logic, it looks like you threatened Bob Woodward.

    Re: White House threatens Bob Woodward

    Digging into one of his famous folders, Woodward said the tirade was followed by a page-long email from the aide, one of the four or five administration officials most closely involved in the fiscal negotiations with the Hill. “I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today,” the official typed. “You’re focusing on a few specific trees that give a very wrong impression of the forest. But perhaps we will just not see eye to eye here. … I think you will regret staking out that claim.”
    Doesn't strike me as threatening.

    how many times was bush criticized, for not using proper English, ....laughed at when he had the shoe thrown at him, dan quail laughed at over ....potato.

    yet these things are big news for the press, and they go on and on about them.

    yet those have nothing to do with threats, improprieties.

    for someone who does not even like Bush, he got a lot of crap throw at him, while the current WH occupant, gets a pass on everything

    Well to be fair then that source would be outed. That being said, "unnamed sources" should be steps to uncovering larger stories, they shouldn't be the only source of the story itself, otherwise there's nothing to stop any reporter from just plain making anything up, which frankly this one has the feel of.
