I Don't Give A Blank About Deepthroat.
I don't care one lick about Deepthroat. Seriously. I really don't care. It must be a generational thing, because I just don't care. I don't care. I am sick of hearing about it. Sick of reading about it. Sick of being asked about it. Who cares. Mark Felt is a has been. Always will be.
It's not even really a news story, but, rather, more of an excuse for the media to wax nostalgic, collectively, about its once-glorious past. Peggy Noonan has a great take on the lameness of the whole Felt story.
30 years ago, it was important. Today, not at all. This will be the first and last post on the matter, unless something really neat comes out of it (I'll just bet nothing will).
By the way, here's an actual question asked (the first one asked) at the President's Oval Office meeting with South African President Mbeki regarding genocide in Darfur:
Q Yes, Mr. President. First, for you -- what are your thoughts about the fact that Deep Throat has been outed --
No. Seriously. That was the first question asked.
Ugh. The sheer disgustingness of the media's self-absorption on this issue makes me sick. Seriously. A two-part question, part one dealing with whether the President admires Deep Throat, part two dealing with the murder of countless Africans.
However, President Bush missed a perfect opportunity to call out the reporter for asking such a silly question while the focus ought to have been on the important and pressing human rights issues in Darfur, Sudan. Bush could have scored, but, instead, he sort of fumbled over the Deep Throat question when it was asked again 20 seconds later.
Yes, you read that correctly. Whether President Bush believes Deep Throat is a hero was asked, again, 20 seconds later.

He is no Hero in my opinion!...I think he is a big creep and a coward! He should have gone to the proper authorities but he was too scared!

HELLO, It must be a generational thing! We had to endure the Liberal MSM's excruciatingly monotonous mantra on Watergate without having an alternative to tune into. Richard Nixon was not as bad as what we have had in recent Presidential Era's! The MSM was relentless to him! Deep Throat (Mark Felt) should have gone through the proper authorities. Instead the American public was forced to go through the BS of leaking information! "DEEP THROAT" and his family will benefit from book deals etc... He is absolutely not a hero!!! He is a chicken liver!

Deep Throat is a good name for Mark Felt! He basically sold himself! In return for a nice retirement package and a book deal! How nice for the old goat that he doesn't have to do time for leaking information and hiding out for decades! He is absolutely not a hero in any way shape or form. At least Richard Nixon had the decency to resign in disgrace! Unlike, some impeached President who lied under oath...and remained in the White House! I am surprised Hillary didn't pull down the curtain while they were moving out!...

In one sense, the whole affair actually represents the press at its excruciatignly rare best. Woodstein said they wouldn't reveal the Secret Identity until after the man was dead. And for over thirty years they kept that promise. A big deal? Perhaps not. But it's a far stronger show of integrity than I'm accustomed to seeing in the MSM.

The MSM has become more like a gossip rag! I agree with Ben Stein! I couldn't have put it better myself! He took the words right out of my mouth!
