We do like hell! They kept deep throat’s identity a secret until Mark Felt’s death because they didn’t want it to be known that their “informant” was a disgruntled, jealous, and vengeful government employee who was pissed that Nixon passed him over for head of the FBI after Hoover’s death.

Bob Woodward’s books are worthless tripe.

Bob Woodward’s books are worthless tripe.

And yet he has the gratitude of the New Left (plus fame and fortune) for forever branding Republicans as corrupt.

Nixon, like so many other politicians, became convinced that his re-election was somehow necessary for the survival of the free world.

The New Left simply capitalized rather completely on his mistake.

Do you really think a content Nixon loyalist would have "blown the whistle"? Enablers are rarely a good source of incriminating evidence.

By “we need Woodward and Bernstein,” the author didn’t mean them per se, but rather what they represent — dogged determination to find the truth. There’s no question but that the WaPo has always been a liberal newspaper. But we need that same dedication no matter who it favors or incriminates.
