It appears with each passing day another member of the media is coming out to share unpleasant treatment at the hands of Barack Obama and Company.
On Thursday, in an appearance on NewsMaxTV's Steve Malzberg Show, former Newsweek senior editor Jonathan Alter said that in 2008, Robert Gibbs sent him an "abusive email" as a result of an article he wrote about Obama and disinvited him to a dinner the candidate was holding for reporters in Berlin (choppy audio follows with transcript and commentary):

Looks like it took a true journalist to break the ice.
It is too late for the pebbles to vote.... The avalanche has begun...
Woodward, Attkisson, Davis and Fournier. That’s four so far in the last 24 hours.
I guess the real question is how many gerbalists HAVE NOT been threatened by the White Hut?
I think the “me too” choir is just starting to sing. lol
I’m not so sure Woodward could truly be classified as a “true journalist,” however I would acknowledge that he has fraudulently worn the mantle of “true journalist” for many years.
So with that reservation, I agree with you. It took someone of large stature on the left to start the ball rolling.
The attack puppies of the press?
Obama’s people are very upset for good reason. It would appear that there is a growing realization in the journalistic community that Obama is a dangerous, petulant narcissist. His bizarre policies are likely to lead to a debacle. The MSM have acted as syncophants. Now some wish to get ahead of the curve and salvage what they can of their tattered reputations. First Woodward, then Lannie Davis and now Alter. Hopefully it is the beginning of the end for Obama.
I hope you’re right. There are indeed some reporters and journalists out there with integrity. The trouble is... their bosses - the networks and the press agencies - will always continue to kiss Nobama’s butt.
Obama and most of his appointees have very little class.
Makes me wanna git some popcorn ready.
You know in a perverse way there is a very big up side to this.
All those swallowers of the Zero koolaid are going to want to be special too. The only way to do that is to cross the Fascist in Charge.
Expect the Wookie to hit the Sunday Shows soon throwing
White Hut Aides under the bus!
Andrea Mitchell came out with some unkind words.
White House taking a beating over this. As well they should.
They’re all from the same thug school. Bunch of dirty nose pickers just like Odungheap.
LOLOL, thanks SS!!
One thing about the press and obama that fascinates me is the silence of the real journalists.
They still exist. Hard to say how many are left, but I find their silence intriguing.
Humans, especially real journalists, don't like unsolved mysteries to stay unsolved or unanswered questions to stay unanswered.
No matter what kind of journalist one might be, one must admit that there is an incomprehensibly long list of unanswered questions about obama that we are not allowed to look at.
Humans also don't like being played and from the ironic hope of his NObel peace prize to the predictable hysteria about the sequester, at some point real journalists get tired of this and, afraid of where these things lead, tell the world.
And we don't like being lied to, especially by people we put into power, like we and the world were lied to about what went down and why at Benghazi. That's dangerous and it came after Fast and Furious! But the only sound from the one stream media is the silence of the lambs.
It's all there for a real journalist to be the next Woodward, but only one old (apologies to AARP) Woodward in sight...and look what they are doing to him.
LOL. They look sorta shocked to me, like they can't believe there's gambling going on or something. ;)
Awesome image. I love it! -lol-
