Woodward’s ‘Fear’ released in Tri-State


A legendary journalist makes new waves in Washington this week, as Bob Woodward’s book ‘Fear: Trump in the White House’ was released across America.

Though there was hardly a line, people at Barnes and Noble in Evansville were eager to get reading. The bright red cover is hard to miss on the rack.

“There has been a lot of interest in this book,” said assistant manager, Chad Williams.

Woodward is the man whose spent a lifetime covering politics. He made a name for himself helping to bring down a president with his reporting on Watergate. Now he is taking stock of Donald Trump’s White House.

‘Fear’ released with a million copies nationwide and critics already call it a best-seller, despite being available for less than 24 hours.

“This is a reliable man that wrote this book, says Sandra Hopkins. “I’m sure it’s probably as truthful as he can make it.”

Woodward isn’t the first to write about Trump but some believe he might be the best.

“I didn’t buy the others, there’s been more than several others that are quite negative,” says another woman who bought Woodward’s book. “Of all these people that have written books, he is probably considered the most honest.””

Trump called the book “fiction.” He said Monday in a tweet, the book is a joke and an assault against him.
