"Deep Throat" Outs Himself

By May 31, 2005

Follow me on:

The number-two FBI official during the Nixon Administration, W. Mark Felt (91), told Vanity Fair author John D. O'Connor that he was "Deep Throat," the anonymous source for Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein's investigation into Nixon's involvement with the Watergate break-in and cover-up. Woodward has confirmed Felt's identity; the Washington Post still employs Woodward.

Bernstein, according to the NY Times, refused to confirm or deny Felt's admission. He said: "We've said all along that when the source known as Deep Throat dies, we will reveal his identity and explain at great length all of our dealings with that individual and context of that relationship."
