    Are we seeing a pattern here?

    WASHINGTON -- 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."
    Whole story is here

    This is a pretty big deal I think. Woodward turning on Bam Bam portends quite a change in the greater MSM media climate with regard to this president. Soon it may be MSNBC standing alone in diehard support of the tyrant.

    That just means that they will be the only ones not shut down by order of the administration.

    Lanny is a far left loon who would swallow whatever Obama tells him to.

    I'm not sure which is more incredible...that someone in the vast Barry press corps actually said something disparaging about our lord and savior and daddy or that the president of the United States is threatening journalists because of it.

    Are we finally through the looking glass and this failure of a president can actually be called such. It would be nice for a change.
    Be Not Afraid.

    Imagine the number of threats from O's bunch if the MSN still actually did investigative reporting.

    Considering that they'd never gotten out of Chicago, I doubt that they'd have much to say.
