Last week, journalist Bob Woodward went public with an e-mail statement from a top-level Obama official who told Woodward he would regret a report related to the sequestration debate. Woodward felt the tone of that e-mail was threatening.
Turns out, Woodward had it pretty easy. Easier than a young female reporter who was called vicious names by a White House official when she had the audacity to ask tough questions of an administration cabinet member.

Bob Woodward has unleashed the floodgates: liberal media is finally admitting the truth about the Obama administration’s lack of respect for the freedom of the press.
In addition to Woodward, correspondents Lanny Davis, Bill Plante, Neil Munro, Ron Fournier, David Brody, Conor Friedersdorf, and others have expressed their concern and disbelief regarding the administration’s fascistic mindset:
… “I had a young reporter asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary,” says one DC veteran. “She was doing her job, and they were trying to bully her. In an e-mail, they called her the vilest names — bitch, c–t, a–hole.” He complained and was told the matter would be investigated: “They were hemming and hawing, saying, ‘We’ll look into it.’ Nothing happened.”
…He wound up confronting the author of the e-mail directly. “I said, ‘From now on, every e-mail you send this reporter will be on the record, and you will be speaking on behalf of the president of the United States.’ That shut it down.”
Of course, the White House has consistently held a disdain towards women – the same disdain they pretend exists in Republican circles.
Earlier this year, a noticeable lack of female appointees to high-ranking positions led the National Organization for Women to ask, ‘President Obama, where are the Women?’
Not to mention the wage gap between male and female employees in Obama’s White House – 13% less.
But hey, the misogynistic war on women isn’t coming from the White House.
Just because they are viewed as props in the contraception and abortion debates, are lower-ranking, lower-paid, a*******, b******, and c****, doesn’t mean they don’t rank equally in Obama’s world.
