BREITBART BIG JOURNALISM

 

Lanny Davis, who served under President Bill Clinton as special counsel to the White House, told Washington, D.C.’s WMAL this morning that the Obama White House had threatened the Washington Times over his column, warning that the Times would suffer limited access to White House officials and might have its White House credentials revoked. Davis, a centrist Democrat, is sometimes critical of the Obama administration’s policies. 

Davis was speaking with Breitbart News editor Larry O’Connor, who co-hosts a morning show on WMAL. Davis said he had never spoken publicly about the threats before, but they seemed relevant after the White House told legendary reporter Bob Woodward that he would “regret” insisting that the White House had come up with the idea of the budget sequester, which President Barack Obama is now urging Congress urgently to revoke.

The White House has vehemently denied the claim in Woodward’s book, though the claim has been in the public domain for several months since the publication of the book, The Price of Politics, in mid-2012. Democrats and a slew of sympathetic liberal journalists have joined the White House in attacking Woodward–a remarkable turn of events given his elite status in the media as part of the duo that brought down President Richard Nixon in 1973.

UPDATE–From WMAL:

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.”

    “You’re going to regret printing this”…..goes against the 1st amendment….right to press. :/

    Obama and his cohorts are acting more like thugs every day. This has an almost uncanny feel to it. Obama is behaving exactly like a paranoid Richard Nixon did and targeting reporters and their employing news organizations. Especially Bob Woodward, who brought Nixon down.

      Anything Lanny says that is negative about the MUSLIM PUNK and LIAR is well received. Usama Hussein Obama, the EVIL ONE, MUST GO. He is no president. Maybe a community organizer like Huey Newton and Bobby Seal but that’s it. He and guys like his buddy Bill Ayers are dime a dozen BASTARDS. Oh, I probably shouldn’t call Ayers a BASTARD because I am not sure if he is one. Now Usama, he is a BASTARD and he likes admitting it. SCREW them BOTH. Larry Velasco, AMERICAN and Hispanic who is for closing OUR borders to ALL. If they come over the border they are driven back if them come back, just HANG EM.

    Obama—————-evidently the only one in higher places in our government as no one else seems to have any say as to how this country will be governed—-Boehner and the rest of the House are despicable and useless

    The First Amendment is in serious jeopardy….when will the public wake up?
    The MSM brought it on themselves…….they can fix it…..but they won’t. They have allowed themselves to be blackmailed by Obama & CO. Why?

    It’s time to challenge the MUSLIM PUNK and LIAR that some of you call president. He is, in reality, A FRAUD, NOTHING. Oh, cunning yes, most CROOKS are. This guy is a MONSTER. It is amazing to me that so many people are FOOLED by the FOOL. NO credentials at all. He is a LIAR, CHEATER, ARROGANT PUNK. That’s all he will ever be and it’s too bad you clowns who support the BASTARD can’t see through his B.S. Also, Bill Ayers is a tyrant and mini PUNK. He should be in jail and not trying to have an effect on your children. Let’s WAKE UP AMERICANS. Larry VELASCO, AMERICAN and Hispanic who despises Usama Hussein Obama, the EVIL ONE.
