...But I do truly believe you should rethink your comment about saying saying that Potus asking for revenues is moving the goal post. I know you may not believe this, but as a friend, I think you will regret staking out that claim.That's a threat? "As a friend, I think you will regret staking out that claim"? Really? Hell, as a reporter I had threats in late night phone calls, had threats in person, had a gun pointed at me. Those are threats.
Now let me be clear, I'm a journalism kid of the 1970s. I'm a Woodward admirer. "Woodstein" is why I'm here. I'm not a partisan in this.
But here's my main point.
Seventy journalists were killed in 2012. That's a record-breaking year. For Woodward to call this email "a threat" while reporters are risking their lives in troubled spots around the world is, to me, too damned prissy.
I hate that my hero appears to be a wuss.
