The whole Bob -- saga pool ball what would.
Gene -- -- threatening finger of Gene Sperling was mean by email apparently or apparently not if you read the entire exchange to Bob Woodward and it seemed to me like the most nonsensical.
Story ever and I think Bob Woodward himself.
Probably regrets -- making quite so much of it now but but you give do you believe that the media played a role.
I wanted to hear your definition of nonsensical -- -- definition of best story ever.
And it took me because I was all all the elements to it every look.
First let's get when they're faced Gene Sperling is not a nasty he is not a threat here I mean I have been working too wet houses I've seen.
Genuine threats from high officials sure you know all push for bladder or are -- -- and public gets them every right exactly so -- is not -- categories actually a gentle polite fellow.
However what is true is that the mainstream media.
There acts and I do mean ex hero Woodward and that's that's the real bias has been that he is as John Nolte -- that -- -- part of other places you could chronicled.
You name me media publication from the Huffington Post of the Washington Post -- Barker have you know you name it wind development they've all been pummeling Woodward now how dare you take on the way -- and that's the real -- -- These the media's desire to defend the president at all costs even -- when they don't -- -- -- -- is it different I mean I had the idea here with -- -- We have mocked mr.
Woodward for his sensitivities.
But that's a different issue I guess to -- -- -- saying that this EU should not.
Did criticize the -- I don't think ally on this Wenatchee tonight we disagree because I -- Bob Woodward deserves to be pummeled for being home was you kick you Bob -- Your thought wouldn't hurt you I keep -- out president's you're sort of you know -- Mount Olympus and hope where Bob -- somebody looks at Enron whammy.
As somebody who's been on both sides of somebody who's just been and Gene -- issues believe me that was not a threat -- I but I was -- -- -- Bigger threats reporters laughed me out of the room by the way he and conversely.
If you're a reporter Bob Woodward said -- you know it's not me I'm not sensitive to this -- -- 22 year old reporter you might.
Look SK you know you make you scared the White House right and you -- -- -- -- -- year.
And you're scares -- threatening you get it gets -- Atlanta.
-- that's true -- we should point that that she is building this title.
National Economic Council director is one letter away from -- -- so he should not me on nobody should be threatened by -- but tonight Jim.
Wage should treat him with the way I mean would you -- when reverend Semih does is it whereas would look to some extent some mavericks in just one -- more point medical.
If that if there's dispute as to whether or not -- rumors threatened.
And if for example Woodward might have early on given the wrong impression about -- -- threats and so on and I think as the White House will be all the email saying this is a threat there's no threat.
Tom -- I think it does cast a little bit of shadow across Woodward's previous forty years reporting from Sharia to Iran Contra -- -- This -- view as maybe the guy has been known to embellish a factor to Korea or three all right.
-- wasn't -- -- that embellishment I think by Wolf Blitzer who sniffed and inside the beltway story.
As soon as he ever wrote was to told about the first female in that -- and feet.
Which has now become a media tour Bible would -- -- order -- will not be appearing on all this news watch hosted by -- -- Saturday 230 and 11:30 PM eastern.
But luckily for you Jim Pinkerton well so what -- -- -- do whatever you need to do just be that.
