"Deep Throat" was the mythical source for the Mainstream Media's coverage of Watergate, and the man tagged as Deep Throat passed away recently. The source's name derived from a porn movie that was popular at the time. But the true legacy of Watergate went beyond the destruction of the Nixon Administration; it went into the real beginning of the cult of the "heroic" reporter.
A great deal about Watergate remains shrouded in liberal distortion, and it may never be fully removed, for hatred of the Nixon Administration even surpassed the absurd hatred of the W. Bush decade. Yet eliminating the shroud will remain necessary to reveal the truth about what happened and more importantly what did not happen.
