Deep Throat's ID Confirmed By Woodward, Bernstein, & the WaPo

Probably the biggest news of the day that I could give a rat's ass less about.

I've got to do a little Googling to confirm, but I think some project by journalism graduate students named Felt as the most likely Throat. If that's right-- hey, nice going, guys.

What does this mean?

Well, Throat was not entirely a fictional device as many have believed.

It also means that the media get to spend the next several days discussing their favorite topic-- themselves.

At least that means they'll have less time to pound on Republicans.

Correction: That journalism class didn't finger Felt (ahem); they fingered Nixon WH insider Fred Fielding.

So, journalism students are dumb. Breaking news. Must credit Ace of Spades.
