While a young reporter for The Washington Post in 1972, Woodward was teamed up with Carl Bernstein; the two did much of the original news reporting on the Watergate scandal. These scandals led to numerous government investigations and the eventual resignation of President Richard Nixon. Gene Roberts, the former executive editor ofThe Philadelphia Inquirer and former managing editor of The New York Times, has called the work of Woodward and Bernstein “maybe the single greatest reporting effort of all time.”
Woodward continued to work for The Washington Post after his reporting on Watergate. He has since written over a dozen books on American politics, most of which have topped bestsellers lists.
The main THREAT was, ‘You will regret this…’
Here’s the original article that upset the White House.
Democrat Bob Woodward felt the need to call out Obama for his blatant lies about not only having supported the automatic spending cuts, but actually having introduced the idea himself. This is a must read.
The unnamed Obama adviser is Gene Sperling.
Lanny Davis: ‘Obama White House threatened me, too.’
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.”
All the proof you need about who’s telling the truth:
Watergate’s Bob Woodward was the wrong guy to threaten.
