Deep Throat Action

Does the name "Deep Throat" sound dirty to anyone else? (Yeah, here come the p()rn() hits.) Not even one solitary sex joke about the name on Wonkette today, amazing.

It turns out that Deep Throat Uncovered was wrong. A bunch of University of Illinois students thought the source was someone named Fred Fielding, and they wrote a whole book about it. Oops. (Via Jeff Jarvis.)

The Guardian Newsblog: "Those Were the Days" -- remember when the press in America aggressively investigated wrongdoing at high levels of government? I don't mean trysts with interns. The Boston Phoenix editorial waxes nostalgic too.

Finally, Editor & Publisher previews the Post's mega-coverage that's coming in Thursday's edition:

According to the Post, Woodward's article will detail the "accident of history" that connected this young reporter just off the suburban beat to a top FBI man. The story will describe how Woodward and Felt met by chance, as the reporter researched stories about the shooting of presidential candidate George Wallace by Arthur H. Bremer in a parking lot in suburban Maryland, just before the Watergate break-in. Felt was known for being friendly with reporters, and he provided Woodward with a few nuggets on that story.

So Woodward called him again after the Watergate break-in. The rest is literally history.

Interesting that the guy who shot George Wallace ended up indirectly ending the political career of Richard Nixon.
