    The media has been quick to sell out one of their own. They have unapologetically thrown Bob Woodward under the proverbial bus. All in order to assuage their handlers and garner favor with the White House press secretary. Fearing if they defend Woodward they could lose their access to favored people.

    This situation has shown anyone paying attention just how biased the American press has become and to what length reporters, news anchors, and talking heads will go to protect their handlers and the government.

    A government that apparently has the ability to blow their careers out of the water if those in the media cross it.

    The message from the executive branch is clear. If you do not print what we say is the truth, your access to information will be marginalized so get in line.

    Bob Woodward has exposed a very smelly underbelly in what at one time was thought of as a fair and balanced American media. It’s a very sad day indeed.
