Watergate reporter threatened by Whitehouse: White House Threatens Reporter Woodward: You’ll “Regret Doing This”
Earlier today reporter Bob Woodward called out Barack Obama on his sequestration madness.
Later today the White House responded to Woodward – with a threat.
Business Insider reported:
Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a “very senior person” at the White House warned him in an email that he would “regret doing this,” the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.
CNN host Wolf Blitzer said that the network invited a White House official to debate Woodward on-air, but the White House declined.
“It makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, ‘You’re going to regret doing something that you believe in,’” Woodward said.
“I think they’re confused,” Woodward said of the White House’s pushback on his reporting.
