Wait ... You mean it wasn't Hal Holbrook?

Of course! W. Mark Felt! It was right there in front of our noses the whole time! We should have figured it was the guy that nobody ever heard of.

Meanwhile, I can't help but be a little bit sad. It's truly the end of an era: I imagine we'll never see another secret source who brings down a president and is named after a porn movie again. Although if we do, I recommend they go with "On Golden Blonde." That would be funny.

Chianca:

Did you like how the other people often listed as "Deep Throat" either a) were glad they were now off the hook or b) said he should have done anything but talked to the Washington Post? The truth is not that Deep Throat GAVE Woodward and Bernstein anything, but rather that they knew if he was talking to them, there must be more to the story....to the story....to the story!

Actually, the porn movie was named after the source - not the other way around, right ? Since if i recall it was released after watergate.

no, anonymous, deep throat, the movie was released in early '72, watergate happened, or was discovered in july - august of '72. the name d.t. was given after the fact for the purpose of the book.

Great blog. My favorite moment since the Felt revelation: Bob Novak doens't think he's a hero. Novak. The guy who outed an undercover CIA agent to teach someone a lesson. People wonder why I'm angry.

Sadly, no one waits long enough for their 15 minutes of fame for a nickname to stick. We learned about Linda Tripp, for example, way before any one could write a book and use a cool nickname for her.
