More Deep Throat Info

Well according to this article, Woodward will now niether confirm or deny that Felt was Deep Throat. However, back when the Vanity Fair article was being written, John D. O’Connor, the author, talked with Woodward about being included in the article.

“Felt, 91, purportedly said he wanted Woodward, who, with Carl Bernstein, relied on Deep Throat in his reporting, to cooperate.

O’Connor and Felt’s daughter, Joan, tried to get Woodward to go along. The article pictures Woodward as neither confirming nor denying Felt was Deep Throat but acting in ways that certainly suggest that this is the truth. “Just because I’m talking to you, I’m not admitting that he is who you think he is,” Woodward told O’Connor.

But Woodward was concerned about Felt’s mental state, in talks and a visit with him, and, ultimately, he did not go along with a joint exposure plan.”

So if Woodward really met with Felt, and later said he didn’t feel comfortable with it, this is basically saying Felt *is* Deep Throat without saying it.

I’m as giddy as a school girl! We may finally know the identity of the greatest anonymous source in journalistic history!
