However, Woodward and Bernstein have reiterated their stance: no ID of "Deep Throat" until said source is dead.

Y!: # 5 Posted on 31.5.05 1632.48 Reposted on: 31.5.12 1633.48 It just flashed on CNN that Woodward has confirmed that Deep Throat was in fact Felt. There's no link on their page this second, but it's right on the BREAKING NEWS bar. (edited by Blanket Jackson on 31.5.05 1733)

Can't help but feel a little disappointed. By the way, as I type this Pat Buchanan is bitching about Felt on MSNBC's "Hardball." Absolutely hilarious. Also interesting to note that Chris Matthews spoke about the Nixon tapes, saying that Felt was specifically mentioned as an ambitious and loyal guy who wanted to cooperate them, with Matthews going so far as to say they were insinuating he was a "suck-up." Don't know how true that last part is, since I haven't heard the tapes myself. And, if anyone cares, I made a YTMND. (edited by Deputy Marshall on 31.5.05 1922)
