What's a good analogy for blaming Woodward for not sounding the alarm?

First, should he have? Even if he should have, that should be a separate case from Trump's.

No, he shouldn’t have because the president would have shut down the interviews. Also, it would have made little difference because the president was going to do just what he has done to date. I’m just glad it was all on tape.

Okaaayyy...

This is like the guy who stands there quietly shooting video while a white cop stands on a black man's neck, escalating a bogus traffic stop from minor moving violation to murder.

Yes, the guy shooting the video should have tried to stop the cop from committing a violent racist murder, but ultimately we can probably all agree that the cop had a higher obligation -- both morally and as part of his job -- not to be a racist murderer. And at least it was documented so the cop *might* face some public scrutiny for his crime.

He could have never shared the interviews.

The best you could say is that an early release of the interview and back-up tapes might have had an effect of the trajectory of Trump's actions.

He released these about 5-6 weeks too early. I would have dropped the bomb 2 weeks before elections.

No way. Too risky that The Emperor has self-immolated or 5 other tell-all books would saturate the market.

Except the other books wouldn’t have tapes.

Dennis: This is the reason, and one of the threads lower down discusses it.

Can we overlay the tapes on his speeches? That would be a good commercial!

There’s literally hundreds of books about Trump. It’s impossible to publish a Trump book that isn’t one among many coming out within the same month.

Then there's my all-knowing book "Hesapieceofshit." You only need to read the cover.
