Reporter admits going easy on David Axelrod to not hurt his feelings?
A new e-book on the Obama administration says presidential adviser David Axelrod is so popular with reporters that one privately admits to avoiding writing tough stories that would upset him.
Author Glenn Thrush doesn’t name the reporter in his “Obama’s Last Stand” e-book, but wrote that “Axe” is “so well liked a reporter told me he softened his stories to avoid ‘hurting his feelings.’”
