I already ordered my copy of Woodward's book. Trump's tweets are going to help sell copy after copy.  Trump  really should not taken on Writers.  These people tend to fact check and fight back.. Nancy

"Fear:Trump in the White House" Bob Woodward's new book

140 Views
Message 2 of 2

The Obama WH had a well defined process for dealing with Bob Woodward when he wrote a book about that administration. They arranged the meetings Woodward requested and had Obama people sitting in so they knew what was said. They gave access knowing Woodward probably had the information anyway but access gave them some insight into the interviews and a leg up on responding to them. 

 

Camp Chaos, under Trump, left every official on their own so many simply turned him down.  Unfortunately for the Trump administration, chaos is never effective so Woodward found other sources and eventually got access to the people he wanted. Usually after they realized they had lost all control. 

 

This is going to be a YUGE book. Anybody think Woodward would stoop to "fake news"?

 

 

 

The result is what often happens in Trump world: Senior officials, acting as lone wolves concerned with preserving their own reputations, spoke to Woodward on their own — with some granting him hours of their time out of a fear of being the last person in the room to offer his or her viewpoint.

As one former administration official put it: “He hooked somebody, and that put the fear of God in everyone else.”

Another former official added: “It’s gonna be killer. Everyone talked with Woodward.”
