Bob Woodward says he would release book interview tapes if strongly challenged

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/bob-woodward-fear-trump-in-the-white-house-intervie...

Perhaps someone said this already but why would anyone who wanted to remain anonymous agree to let Woodward record them knowing that nothing concerning the media is sacred any more? Or if they were suspect... they would have to deny it and then Woodward, as he is doing now, would threaten to release the tape?

Did Woodward guarantee anonymity to his sources?

Asked whether he would release any of the interview tapes, Woodward told "CBS This Morning" on Thursday: "Well, if somebody really wants to challenge me, of course. Of course. But I — again, I've made agreements with people that these sources are going to remain confidential."


And here he is saying if challenged he will release them. Define challenged. If one denies it, he turns into the rat. That's my point. Stupid to agree to be an anonymous source for anything when it involves attacks on another person especially a president who can embellish as well as anyone. Why talk to a guy working on a book if you are working clandestinely against a president. It's like turning on yourself.

I read this as if one of his sources challenges the quotes, Woodward would release the tape of that source. I don't think he meant that he would breach the confidentiality if the source didn't challenge the veractiy.

That makes more sense. I can't imagine Woodward releasing the names because Trump challenged him, for example.

Woodward might do something if his reputation were constantly besmirched. Trump might get dangerously close to slander or libel if he publicly insists that Woodward made the quotes up.

And if Woodward has the tapes to prove Trump wrong, would he use them? Could he use them in a courtroom setting that was sealed from the press and still maintain confidentiality? I don't really know.

Greg, do you see that word “accusation”? A lot mud up in the air yet. And what the hell does it have to do with Trump? Just like the Russia BS. Looks like a lot of people trying to save their jobs by the accusation of others.
