At this point Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu‘s alleged quote to Sec. of State John Kerry and U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro is everywhere in the press:

“Don’t second guess me again,” Netanyahu reportedly told Kerry and Shapiro.

And on CNN.com, anchor Jake Tapper writes that Netanyahu doesn’t deny the report that he told them “not to second guess him” on how to deal with Hamas again.

But this morning Dr. Dore Gold, senior adviser to Netanyahu, went on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and whined about journalism.

When asked about the quote, Gold said, “It’s a popular sport today in journalism to speculate about private conversations between the U.S. and Israel. I cannot verify that quote. It doesn’t seem to make sense to me.”
