Bob Woodward arrives at U.S. Federal Court in 2007.
Veteran journalist Bob Woodward is embroiled in an extraordinary public clash with the White House over his reporting on the sequester.
Woodward has been making the rounds to cable TV and print outlets accusing a “very senior person” in the administration of threatening him last week ahead of an op-ed he later published in the Washington Post attributing the idea for the automatic spending cuts to President Obama.
The blitz drew a harsh rebuke from former senior Obama adviser David Plouffe Wednesday night: “Watching Woodward last 2 days is like imagining my idol Mike Schmidt facing live pitching again. Perfection gained once is rarely repeated,” he wrote on Twitter.
Former Obama campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith also opined: “Woodward deserves a lot of credit for taking a macro story about DC dysfunction, competing econ theories & making it all about him,” she said. Full Story.
Do you believe Woodward's allegation that he was threatened by someone in the Obama administration?
Item: High court asked to reinstate FCC indecency policy against nudity, cursing on television/Mark Sherman, AP
More Info: The Obama administration asked the Supreme Court Thursday to reinstate a policy that allows federal regulators to fine broadcasters for showing nudity and airing curse words when young children may be watching television. The administration is seeking the high court's review of appeals court rulings that threw out the Federal Communications Commission's rules against the isolated use of expletives as well as fines against broadcasters who showed a woman's nude buttocks on a 2003 episode of ABC's “NYPD Blue.”
Question: Do you think there's too much cursing on television during hours that children are watching?
