Tonight's news - Deep Throat

Firstly, a minor aside: Hear Hear! I won't begin to rant on this topic as this guy has done it so well. What did catch my interest on 'Newsnight' was the story (almost worthy of 'silly season') that George Bush Snr. was really 'Deep Throat', responsible for bringing down Nixon.

I kid you not. This has been doing the rounds for a while, but it made it to Newsnight! Paxman could barely conceal his amusement at times, I thought, lots of comments about how the evidence was rather sketchy.

The watergate journalist, Bernstein and Woodward, have promised to reveal the name of 'Deep Throat' once DT is dead.

[Edit: As May became June, Mark Felt, a forler FBI deputy, outed himself as Deep Throat]
