Deep Throat revealed

Deep Throat.jpgMark Felt, a retired high-ranking FBI official during the Nixon Administration, confirmed yesterday the Vanity Fair magazine story in its July issue that he was “Deep Throat,” the confidential shadowy source for Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, the Washington Post reporters who helped unravel the Watergate scandal that resulted in the resignation of President Richard Nixon over 30 years ago. Here is the exhaustive Washington Post coverage on the story.
The movie based on Woodward and Bernstein’s decent book about the affair — All the President’s Men — does a reasonably entertaining job of telling the story about the Watergate scandal. However, for a more complete and compelling source of information about the Watergate scandal, read the late J. Anthony Lukas’ Nightmare: The Underside of the Nixon Years (Viking 1976).
