Former Newsweek Editor: Robert Gibbs Sent Me 'Abusive Email' In '08 For Article I Wrote About Obama

Noel Sheppard

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):

knows Woodward's head is so far up Obama's butt he's looking for a flashlight.

I am simply dumbfounded watching Woodward give interviews and still try to fawn all over Obama. It's mind boggling to me that these people really have no idea what and who they are dealing with.

A FIB is just a FIB and a LIB remains a LIB, of that you can’t deny

HA! That's funny, but true!

I think the thing about Woodward is that he still wants access to the White House and Obama but he has to stand by his story because he knows it's true. He's a DC player, a limousine liberal. He doesn't want to give that up by going all Rambo on Obama.

Did you read or see “All The President’s Men?” Woodward is the unconvinced Editor.

I agree with what you said. In fact, it’s how life often works. Like it or not, you often have to ‘go along to get along’ in your job, your group of friends or even your family.

Now that WE are in more dire, dangerous times, we can’t just keep doing that anymore.

I bet if you saw the video you’d remember; I rarely watch videos but it was freaking ominous. The hatred and anger and 100% lack of morality or decency were utterly revealed.
