Deep Throat finally comes out
W. Mark Felt comes out and says he was Deep Throat (links to a PDF file of an upcoming Vanity Fair article), which is what Timothy Noah over at Slate has always felt, um, I mean maintained . As Noah's article puts it, "Woodward has stated that the real Deep Throat has lied in order to protect his identity", and Felt did come out with an explicit denial back near the end of the last century. Ah, and just as I was typing this, it's been confirmed by Woodward and Bernstein . Thus endeth one of the great mysteries of the last century.
