As Obama White House Denies Threats to Woodward, Democrat Lanny Davis Admits to Threats From Obama White House as Well (Update: Add Ron Fournier to the List)

 

WOODWARDGATE CONTINUES …

As the Barack Obama White House denies that Gene Sperling, an economic adviser to the president, threatened journalist Bob Woodward, along comes this bombshell. FOX News contributor and former President Bill Clinton aid  Lanny Davis said he also received threats from the Obama regime. It would seem that the Obama Chicago-style brand of politics knows no bounds, including threatening the press. How ironic is it that the very group of people who have carried Obama’s water and acted more as a propaganda arm of the Obama White House than a fact checking, investigative news source, is actually being threatened behind the scenes. So much for the First Amendment and Freedom of the Press.

Lanny Davis stated that his editor was threatened by a senior Obama White House official ”that if he [the editor] continued to run my [Lanny Davis] columns, he would lose, or his reporters would lose their White House credentials.” Could Barack Obama be any more like Richard Nixon?

Bob Woodward isn’t the only person who’s received threats for airing the Obama administration’s dirty laundry.  It seems anyone is a potential target of the White House these days – even former senior members of the Clinton administration.

A day after Woodward’s claim that a senior White House official had told him he would “regret” writing a column criticizing President Obama’s stance on the sequester, Lanny Davis, a longtime close advisor to President Bill Clinton, told WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall Thursday he had received similar threats for newspaper columns he had written about Obama in the Washington Times.

Davis told WMAL that his editor, John Solomon, “received a phone call from a senior Obama White House official who didn’t like some of my columns, even though I’m a supporter of Obama. I couldn’t imagine why this call was made.”  Davis says the Obama aide told Solomon, “that if he continued to run my columns, he would lose, or his reporters would lose their White House credentials.”

But wait, there is more, add Ron Fournier to the list of media who have been threatened by this thug White House. What makes me think that this is not norm and not the exception and that this White House has been doing this all along?

As editor-in-chief of National Journal, I received several e-mails and telephone calls from this White House official filled with vulgarity, abusive language, and virtually the same phrase that Politico characterized as a veiled threat. “You will regret staking out that claim,” The Washington Post reporter was told.

As stated at the Hit and Run blog, the Most Openly and Transparently Thin-Skinned Administration in History. Amen brother. It was only made worse and enable by a cowardly and complicit media.

      Suspect that if Woodward would help pin the
      Obama Sequester and it’s selective (by Obama)
      targets for fiscal increase reductions on the
      Republicans (and Conservatives as well) that he
      would instantly be forgiven by the White House!

      [...] its citizens at each others throats so that they can rule by fiat? Isn’t it a dictator who threatens the media to keep them in line so that they will operate as their propaganda tool? Isn’t it a dictator [...]
