Woodward And Bernstein

June 2, 2005 | David Greenberg, David Greenberg is a professor of journalism, media studies and history at Rutgers University and author of "Nixon's Shadow: The History of an Image" (W.W. Norton, 2003). He worked as Bob Woodward's assistant on "The Agenda: Inside the Clinton White House" (Simon and Schuster, 1994).
The disclosure that W. Mark Felt, formerly the No. 2 official at the FBI, was Bob Woodward's famous Watergate source, "Deep Throat," has received a flurry of media attention normally reserved for such world-shattering events as a tsunami, the death of a pope or a runaway bride. Some perspective is in order. Admittedly, the unmasking of the whistle-blower who helped Woodward and Carl Bernstein, of the Washington Post, assemble key pieces of the Watergate puzzle is not without importance.

"All the President's Men," the classic 1976 film about Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein's unraveling of Watergate, opens with hammering typewriter keystrokes that sound like gunshots. Thirty years later, those shots -- forged by relentless digging by two unlikely Washington Post reporters -- still reverberate.

I am at the Library of Congress to see which senators and representatives have checked out Madonna's erotic bestseller "Sex." I know the Library of Congress recently purchased the book, because a federal employee, whom I shall call Elsie, tipped me to this a few days ago. "The library got a call from Capitol Hill requesting the purchase of the book, and we did," Elsie said.
Former White House chief of staff--and convicted Watergate felon--H.R. (Bob) Haldeman had a message Wednesday for inquiring high school students who peppered him with questions about his years in the service of President Richard Nixon. "For Pete's sake," he implored 100 Southern California student newspaper editors, who were not yet born at the time of the 1972 Watergate burglary, "don't believe what you read in history books (just) because of the fact that those words are printed. . . ."
Richard Nixon is dead, Katharine Graham is dead, even Linda Lovelace is dead. But Deep Throat? Still alive, and still a secret more than a quarter-century after his guidance helped Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein break the Watergate story and unseat a president. John Dean says he knows Deep Throat's identity. And the former White House counsel, whose testimony against Nixon was a key moment in the saga, says he will reveal all in "The Deep Throat Brief."

James D. St. Clair, a pillar of the Boston legal community who made notable appearances before Congress and the federal courts in an effort to save President Richard M. Nixon from the scandal of Watergate, has died. St. Clair died Saturday at a nursing home in Westwood, Mass., after a long illness. He was 80. Few lawyers have faced greater challenges than St.

Ron Ziegler, the press secretary to President Richard Nixon who dismissed the Watergate break-in as "a third-rate burglary," died Monday of a heart attack in Coronado, Calif. He was 63. As the June 17, 1972, break-in at the Democratic National Headquarters snowballed into a scandal that caused the 37th president to resign two years and two months later, Ziegler remained the ultimate Nixon loyalist.

The tech blog Gizmodo paid a source $5,000 earlier this month for a prototype of a new Apple iPhone that had been left behind in a beer garden. It was a small investment, considering the huge audience for its posts about the device. But Apple is now pushing for criminal charges and Gizmodo is crying foul, saying investigators overreached when they seized the scoop-writer's computers. It's right, even if its brand of checkbook journalism seems wrong. According to Gizmodo, a young Apple engineer left the prototype on a Redwood City barstool in March.

Re Kenneth L. Khachigian's Aug. 1 column: Gov. Gray Davis' political moderation is a figment of the media's imagination. It is a carefully contrived plan to assure his reelection. Certain actions betray his true liberal, left-of-center goals. For example, regarding immigration, he has just signed AB 82, which will pay the health care costs of illegal immigrants, including abortions and contraceptives. This will lead to California taxpayers paying for the health care of citizens of Mexico.
