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!
