One of the recent news stories I've been following with great interest has been
the supposed unmasking of Mark Felt as "Deep Throat". I don't know how much
interest other members have in Watergate...I suspect it was before the time of
the vast majority...but I was 12 when it broke and remember the main issues
and events pretty well.

Tonight, I was watching Law & Order and saw a commercial for an interview of
Bob Woodward on either MSNBC or Dateline: NBC (wasn't paying that close of
attention) to promote his upcoming book, called The Secret Man: The Story of
Watergate's Deep Throat.

Here's the interesting thing: It looked like a fairly hefty book. The supposed
disclosure of Mark Felt as the real Deep Throat was a month or two ago, but
unless Woodward, his aides, or his staff are just super, super prolific (which
I doubt), it would have been impossible to get this book ready just over the
last couple of months...this has to have been in the works for a while!

The obvious conclusion...The "outing" of Felt was/is a publicity stunt to promote the book!

Is there something wrong with that? In a capitalist society everything is for sale. Including the truth.

Your conclusion is wrong. Many people suspected Felt from the beginning.

Tom Brokaw was on David Letterman Show promoting the show. Tom Brokaw says he suspected Felt was "Deep Throat" for many years. As Brokaw said during the show, it was easy to suspect Felt due to his personal friendship and connections with the reporters.

It's also possible that he already written most of the book, except for the last chapter, and was planning to release it after Mark Felt died. When Mark Felt came forward, he wrote the ending and sent it off for printing.

I know most papers/news agencies have obituaries pre-written for important people, so why not with a book?
