The subjects of our latest Photo Caption Contest appear today on the Drudge Report with this caption/headline:

 WHITE HOUSE THREATENS WOODWARD: ‘YOU WILL REGRET DOING THIS’…

Once again, I am counting on Tatler fans to write alternative caption/headlines capturing the essence of the Bob Woodward/Obama Administration dust-up that currently has the chattering class all atwitter.

However, the irony is just too priceless to go unnoticed. Back in 1972, young Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein rose to fame helping to bring down a “corrupt” president by the name of Nixon, whose administration was known for intimidating journalists.  This famous quote by then Attorney General John Mitchell to Carl Bernstein about his Post publisher Katharine Graham nicely sums up the tension:

All that crap, you’re putting it in the paper? It’s all been denied. Katie Graham’s gonna get her tit caught in a big fat wringer if that’s published.

Now fast forward to 2013.

Here we have Bob Woodward, a famous author and still a Washington Post Associate Editor of a newspaper that outright admitted in its pages on November 7, 2008, the Sunday after the November election that its coverage “tilted toward” electing then Senator Obama (and again more subtly in 2012) now complaining to the media about being intimated by the Obama Administration for disagreeing with them about the origination of the sequester concept.

But, as Christian Adams write today in his PJM piece entitled All the President’s Thugs:

Richard Nixon seems like a fluffy kitten compared to this crowd.

Which brings us back to you, Mr. Woodward. What’s happened when you, of all people, are the bad guy?

OK, enough history and editorializing, let’s get back to the contest at hand.

You know the rules, be nice and stay classy because the media is watching and here are the winners from the last contest who did that so well.

Have fun, but don’t be too snarky or you’ll land on Obama’s enemies list.

Deep Throat was a double entendre that stood for an act that cannot, unfortunately...be limited to only one member of Obama's media. It applies equally to nearly all of them.

Or, in this instance..."Notepads to Kneepads"

Forget Woodward regretting anything. Freedom of the Press has the biggest regret.

Compare and Contrast:
Both like to hear the sound of their own voices
One visited China and scowled, the other met the Chinese leader and bowed
One was involved in a 3rd rate burglary, the other in a 3rd rate presidency
