    ALL harping aside....one would think that Bob Woodward would have experience in such "threats," and, thus, be well versed in noticing as much.

    But, perhaps, the Nixonians never really "threatened" him and or, Bernstein.....

    He can't refute what Lanny Davis or what Ron Fournier said. Liberals are attacking Lanny Davis, Bob Woodward, and Ron Fournier now.

    Take the log out of your eye before you complain about the splinter in another's eye? It's okay when the right does it, but certainly not okay for the left?

    A columnist for the Oregon Daily Courier, Dan Guthrie, said he was fired for writing a column (9/15/01) that criticized Bush for "hiding in a Nebraska hole" in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks (Associated Press, 9/26/01). After the column sparked angry letters to the editor, the paper's publisher printed an apology to readers (9/18/01): "Criticism of our chief executive and those around him needs to be responsible and appropriate. Labeling him and the nation's other top leaders as cowards as the United States tries to unite after its bloodiest terrorist attack ever isn't responsible or appropriate." The publisher denied Guthrie was fired for what he wrote, but declined to elaborate.
    Similarly, the city editor of the Texas City Sun, Tom Gutting, was fired after writing a column (9/22/01) critical of Bush’s actions the day of the attacks. His column was also the subject of an apology from the paper's publisher (9/21/01), who wrote an accompanying op-ed headlined "Bush's Leadership Has Been Superb" (Editor & Publisher, 9/27/01).

    Attempts by the U.S. government to exert control over media have been broad. In early October, Secretary of State Colin Powell voiced his concerns about theAl Jazeera television station during a meeting with Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa Thani, the emir of Qatar. Powell reportedly told Thani to "rein in" Al Jazeera, which operates out of Qatar and relies on the government for significant funding (Washington Post, 10/9/01). Though the channel is considered by many to be the most independent TV news outlet in the Arab world, Powell and other U.S. officials were reportedly upset by the channel re-airing old interviews with bin Laden and the inclusion of guests that are too critical of the United States on its programs. (In attempting to muzzle Al Jazeera, Powell was mirroring the complaints of Arab nationalists who contend that the channel too often airs the views of Israelis and Western officials.

    I'm not trying to beat or destroy you, Michele. I just want to figure out what is reality. My problem is I tend to distrust the politician first. ...and yes, that made it somewhat difficult for me during the "W" Bush years as well.

    Understood....we both come from different points of view, so its a given we will disagree. But we need to learn to disagree about topics, not emotions. <---not necessarily you.

    Because if I were an emotional kinda gal...Id be commenting on the little weenie posters in this thread.

    At least Bob Woodward didn't lose his job over what he said or planned to say. How quickly Republican/conservatives forget, or perhaps "choose not to remember" is a better term?
