Woodward And Bernstein

June 2, 2005 | Johanna Neuman, Times Staff Writer
One day after the disclosure that former FBI Deputy Director W. Mark Felt was "Deep Throat," Washington was awash with claims from political celebrities that they'd known the identity of the secret source all along. Nora Ephron, a screenwriter and author who was once married to Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein -- who with colleague Bob Woodward played leading roles in exposing Watergate -- put out word on a blog that "I knew that Deep Throat was Mark Felt because I figured it out."

LA JOLLA -- It was the day before the day that Tiger and Phil walk the fairways of Torrey Pines, followed by 30,000 of their closest friends. San Diego is a perfect place for this because they are used to having a zoo here. The U.S. Open's magic threesome of Woods, Mickelson and the world's No. 3 player, Adam Scott, will produce a gallery that will make the 405 Freeway look like a country road.

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.

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. . . ."

"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.
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.

Nearly stifled by great wealth, damaged by a mother who by her own admission was "a conscientious but scarcely a loving parent," the fourth of five children who describes herself as a goody-two-shoes eager to please and conform, Katharine Graham rose above her limitations to transform American journalism as owner-publisher of the Washington Post.
