Former FBI official claims to be 'Deep Throat'

Well almost 30 years after watching All the Presidents Men, I know the answer. Too bad I forget 99% of the details around Watergate!

If my nickname was "deep throat" I would have kept quiet too.

Did you see the picture of this guy? Looks like Bob Barker IMO! I'm glad he came forward and that it was confirmed by Bob woodward. Now we've been saved 50 years of conspiracy theory!! BTW, it took great courage to do that. Just what we need with the Liberals!

Actually it was reported in the earlier 90's that it was him but woodward and bernstein would not confirm it. Nixon also suspected and stated that he felt it was Felt.

I think the very fact that he waited 30 yrs to come forward says his motives were right

what is going to gain now at his age? I applaud the man

Actually, according to at least one story, he (or at least his family) was looking for money--they wanted to get paid for the story. I don't know what it says about his motives...at least he still went ahead with it after they refused to pay him for it.

All The Presidents Men is on CBC tongiht/now. I think its a great movie, despite Redford and Hoffman's hair and pants
It's fun knowing who it is now, and watching the movie.

And how fitting CBC show a movie about illegal Republican actions just days after the Conservatives were put in power.... I know this movie was probably scheduled before the election, but its still kinda funny.
