Feb 28, 2013 Comments Off on Daily Caller Tries To Discredit ‘Troll’ Woodward With Double-Tap: Carlson On TV, Lewis Online Pat Dollard
Excerpted from Matt Lewis’s piece in The Daily Caller: Twitter exploded last night, after Bob Woodward revealed that White House official had warned him he would “regret” saying Obama had moved the goal posts on sequestration.
Predictably, conservatives latched onto this, as it confirmed our suspicion about the Obama Administration’s “Chicago-style” of politics. A lot of mainstream journalists bought into this, too — reflexively believing anything the great Bob Woodward says.
Of course, Woodward (who was expert at trolling for publicity before the internet even existed), benefits greatly from the publicity (nothing sells books like controversy).
