Third story of WH intimidation emerges in new tell-all book

By Robert "Rob" Redding Jr.

Editor & Publisher

ATLANTA, Feb. 28, 2013, 3 p.m. - My new book that deals with how the Obama administration runs from race says that a senior White House aide got angry and condescending during a live on air phone call and may have been behind canceling the show on Sirius XM earlier this month.

My new book, "Not a Nonviolent Negro: How I Survived Obama", due out on Tuesday, reports that Kevin Lewis, the director of African-American media, yelled and told me that people would not be he happy with my live on air call placed on Jan. 30 to the White House.

"I think they expect a little more," Lewis told this reporter.

He did not say who "they" were and Redding News Review's six-day-a-week radio show was canceled from running on Sirius XM 128 The Power a week later on Feb. 7. Sirius XM opted to put on a cooking show. Redding News Review is still heard on terrestrial radio stations in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Cleveland, Myrtle Beach and Louisiana.

The incident occurred when I called the White House about money that was promised to the black press and then denied.

Bob Woodward, of the Washington Post, and Lanny Davis, a longtime close advisor to President Bill Clinton, have both now said that they had also received terse and threatening responses from the White House. The National Journal's Ron Fournier also said that he was intimidated.

"Not a Nonviolent Negro: How I survived Obama" is due out on Amazon.com and Kindle on Tuesday.

Consciousness Magazine writes about the new book: "'Not a Nonviolent Negro: How I Survived Obama' is a written composition consumed with extreme meaning, highlighting Redding's boldness, confidence and honesty, one of the most breathtaking eye-openers of this era....'Not a Nonviolent Negro: How I Survived Obama' is definitely ground-breaking; a modern blueprint to fearless literature."
