Woodward defends sitting on Trump interview
By Zack Budryk - 09/09/20 06:33 PM EDT

Journalist Bob Woodward defended his decision to delay reporting that President Trump privately told him the coronavirus pandemic would be particularly deadly.

“He tells me this, and I’m thinking, ‘Wow, that’s interesting, but is it true?’ Trump says things that don’t check out, right?” Woodward told The Associated Press, in reference to Trump telling him the virus was “deadly stuff” in February. Trump made the comments in an interview for Woodward's book "Rage," set to be released next week.

Woodward told the AP he was not convinced Trump was receiving accurate information about the virus until May, when it had spread around the country.


“If I had done the story at that time about what he knew in February, that’s not telling us anything we didn’t know,” he said, saying that at that point he prioritized getting the book published before the election in November.

“That was the demarcation line for me,” Woodward told the AP. “Had I decided that my book was coming out on Christmas, the end of this year, that would have been unthinkable.”

Smarmy bastard. How long will we have to suffer these two frauds? Admittedly, Woodward is far better at the fraud thing than is Bernstein, who is as likable as a deer tick.

Both have stretched their fifteen minutes to decades so I gotta hand that to them.

Tomorrow is a new day.  We may get to see Biden die on national TV.
Any political party that can't cough up anything better than a treacherous brain-damaged old vulture like Joe Biden deserves every beating it gets.

Bob Woodward had my quotes for many months. If he thought they were so bad or dangerous, why didn’t he immediately report them in an effort to save lives? Didn’t he have an obligation to do so? No, because he knew they were good and proper answers. Calm, no panic!

"Stretched" doesn't begin to describe what these two have pulled off ...
