The leftwing media’s knives are for Bob Woodward, and by leftwing, I mean the Media Matters-NBC nexus. Today, Chuck Todd went as far as to dub Bob Woodward the “spokesman for the Republicans” because he reported that Obama’s White House had suggested the sequester.

CHUCK TODD: Speaking of the blame game, another example of how the sequester fight has been reduced to rhetoric and posturing. The central argument over the weekend was over what a political reporter, The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward, wrote on Friday night. Woodward, who wrote a book about the 2011 debt ceiling standoff, argued in an op-ed that the sequester was the White House’s idea…

So if you’re in charge of Speaker Boehner’s or Senator McConnell’s press shop, Woodward is a storyline you couldn’t of crafted better yourself right now. Republicans this weekend were almost giddy over the giant gift they were handed in Woodward…

Amazing. I suppose the White House can’t be accused of “bullying” media figures who apparently enjoy getting roughed up a bit.

Any reporter who speaks the truth about our president and his staff is fair game.
What Chuck Todd meant was a reporter who protects the president is just telling the truth while any reporter who says something that is not protective of the president, but is just reporting the facts, is now a spokesman for the Republicans.

Why would you not post this story http://www.businessinsider.com/bob-woodward-obama-sequester-white-house-reporting-price-politics-2013-2 alongside this one?

It seems bad enough for the 'fellow' press to go after Woodward but the White House would seem to be the primary 'threat' to Mr. Woodward. This from a WH that portends to be the champion of everyone that has ever been bullied.

At the rate the messengers of truth are being bullied on all sides these days we might have to plead to the EPA for
protection.

"Woodward became the spokesperson for the Republicans over the weekend."

Thus spake the lead political analyst for the Most Stupid 'N Biased Channel. Bob should consider that a compliment, such as it is.
