Ron Fournier tells us how brave he is. To hear him tell it he bravely bared his breast to the foe ... and the loss of an anonymous source. He told one of his sources in the White House to stop sending him vulgar e-mails. But he wants Obama to know that he's still good because
... there is no reason to doubt Obama’s integrity -- period.
Ron tells us of his courage:
Woodward-gate is a distraction the White House welcomed, even encouraged, as part of a public-relations strategy to emasculate the GOP and anybody else who challenges Obama. It is a distraction that briefly enveloped my reporting last weekend, when I essentially broke ties with a senior White House official.Yes, I iced a source ...
I'm not quite sure how attacking Woodward advances the Obama plan to destroy the GOP, but that's the reason I'm not an editor of a major MSM publication.
I decided to share this encounter because it might shed light on the increasingly toxic relationship between media and government, which is why the Woodward flap matters outside the Beltway.
Increasingly toxic? Well, if you want to classify a married couple who were madly in love having a quarrel a toxic relationship, I suppose you could write a sentence like that, but to the rest of the country the "toxic relationship" was the incestuous relationship between Obama and the press that adored him.
