Unless you have been living under a rock or get your news from the usual LSM outlets, you must have heard about the controversy caused when the WH threatened Woodward for pointing out how fucked up Team Obama is. The LSM is in a freaking tizzy, but I can go back to before the election where many people, like Barone, predicted the coming Obama thugocracy. These Team Obama people make Nixon look like a piker. First they denied then they threatened Woodward until there was no denying it, but the truth is coming out. Politico has the emails where a senior WH Exec threatened Woodward, so now they are just left with damage control. That means they will make Woodward pay for daring to point out how despicable and crazy they are. Mind you, Woodward is no right winger, he is as leftcore as they get, and he is not alone, as other stories like Ron Fournier getting the rubber glove treatment from the WH, or former Clinton staffer Lanny Davis being told his access would be revoked, are now surfacing.
What this story boils down to is that this WH has an enemies list, and they are neither afraid nor restrained in their response to said enemies. In fact, they are so brazen that they have no compunction threatening a member of the LSM that had already brought down another president, over much less, with serious payback, and felt they could get away with it. They figured the only people that would dare care, and then only if Woodward had the cajones to talk, would be the evil conservatives. The rest of the LSM? They will do what they are told, because they know where their bread is buttered.
I have never been a fan of Woodward, but I see kind of find this stuff he said tame compared to the truth I see going on. His crime I guess is to not bow down to the Emperor and his inner circle’s wishes to be portrayed as the exact opposite of what they really are. The collectivists have no clue what they are doing, and I hazard to point out that things have not completely fallen apart despite what they are doing. If the LSM actually reported how stupid the left really is, can you imagine Obama being reelected? The LSM reports how incredibly stupid the shit the left does like this, and those of us that want to find out what is really going on are left to find the WH lying yet again elsewhere.
No wonder that with the LSM behaving like it does,covering and shilling for them, the WH thought they could give Woodward the shakedown with impunity. I am going to enjoy watching this blue on blue massacre. PASS THE POPCORN!
