He had a disagreement with the WH on who was to blame about the sequester. After the yelling match he received an email apologizing for the fight and at the end was told he would be sorry for printing the article that said it really was Obama's idea in the first place. He is an esteemed journalist who outed Nixon with Watergate and is now being ostracized for again reporting the truth. He claims it wasn't really a threat but it sure sounds like one to most people. He did say it was wrong for the WH to act this way as there are many young journalists out there that instead of reporting the truth will now toe the WH line and only report what they are told to report.
