Deep Throat- One More Comment

Since the revelation of the identity of Deep Throat there has been a ton of analysis and conversation about whether Deep Throat was really one person or if there were several people with Felt serving as the funnel or conduit of information.

There has also been a lot of rhetoric about why he came out now and suggestions that the desire to capitalize upon a book deal is opportunistic, unfair and in general a whisper that this should reflect poorly upon Felt and his family.

I am bothered by a few things. I have yet to read anything that provides a substantive reason as to why there is a need to verify whether Felt worked alone or not and whether Woodward/Bernstein spiced up the story a little with their descriptions of covert communications.

Am I interested in learning whether there was more than one person? Yes, I am. But I am also interested in seeing these pundits give a reason why they need to know more. What do they intend to do with this knowledge.

In relation to Felt and family trying to make a buck off of this I have to say, “So What.” What does it matter, Why do you care. Why is it ok for Woodward to try and do so and not them.

In short I think that there are a lot of smart answers but I am not hearing or reading them. I don’t like settling for supposition, whispers and ridiculous commentary.
