Woodward spat reflects a pattern of behavior by White House

Columnist Kathleen Parker contends that the White House’s recent spat with Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward is “part of a pattern of behavior by the Obama administration that suggests not just thin skin but a disregard for the role of the press.” She added: “This is no tempest in a teapot, but rather is the leak in the dike. Drip by drip, the Obama administration has demonstrated its intolerance for dissent and its contempt for any who stray from the White House script.”
