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."

Where's the pwoof Lanny? Where's the pwoof? Show us the pwoof!
For the media it is always all about access. The DBM sold their soul to The One early on in exchange for access. Seems like that deal with the devil isnt working out so well for them now. They will not be able to control this monster they helped create.

This is hilarious coming from old Lanny, who’s one of the Chicago outfit’s biggest apologists.
If these leaks continue the alphabets will have no choice but to apply milk and make soup.
hmmmm.....could the Clinton Machine finally be springing into action to take its revenge?
Is it too cynical to wonder if Hillary’s campaign has begun?
In a sane world, the whole white house would be emptied out and the occupants would be out on the street looking for legitimate employment.
“that if he continued to run my columns, he would lose, or his reporters would lose their White House credentials”
Exactly, no audience with the supreme leader, no job. I am sure they all got the lesson. See this guy does not want an antagonistic press. Frankly, the news people, whores that they are, now see some of the real damage this guy has inflicted upon the country and perhaps are trying to distance themselves from having their lip prints on his ass.
WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM TOTALITARIANS??????? you USELESS propagandist POS.
By George! Now THAT's a thought!
Unchallenged arrogance at the seat of power naturally loses touch with reality.
The fall is gonna be HARD, for “The One”.
I’m kinda split. On one hand, they sure did help create the monster, but they can also destroy him by suddenly getting honest. Whereas the Right already knows the MSM is full of crap 99% of the time, the sheep on the left think the MSM is honest and only Fox is lying.
If the MSM starts getting even half way legit, Obama disintegrates with no means of support. Because as soon as the MSM gets into a civil war, he loses his propaganda outlets. And this he has no support.
MSNBC against the rest is not a winning proposition.
First Woodward, then Attkisson, now this dweeb?
I’m feeling a “Look at Me!” movement here. I wonder who the next presstitute to be threatened by the White Hut will be?
