Former FBI official revealed as playing role in famous porn flic

W. Mark Felt, which may be a stage name, was revealed to have played an important role in the ... er... seminal porn movie, "Deep Throat" the aging former FBI official revealed to a Vanity Fair reporter.

But seriously folks.... as you no doubt already know, Deep Throat, the crucial background witness who kept Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein focused on key aspects of the Watergate scandal which resulted in the revelation of criminal abuse of power and corruption in the Nixon White House, has been revealed at last.

W. Mark Felt, who was a high ranking FBI official, stated that he was Deep Throat in a Vanity Fair piece, and after initially waffling, Bob Woodward finally confirmed the fact.

Some reactions from journalists here.

As I was watching Crossfire earlier, Lawrence Eagleburger, a guy that has been at the top of several administrations, made a remark that was allowed to go by uncommented upon, but which to me was very telling. In remarking about the revelation of Felt, Eagleburger said, "I'm surprised Felt didn't end up dead somewhere."

Yup, next time you hear someone wondering why the guy that wrote a book before the 2000 election exposing Bush's cocaine use ended up being found at room temperature in some obscure motel room, or why a woman trying to bring a suit with serious allegations against Bush in Texas suddenly was found dead, or why one of the Bush maids apparently managed the remarkable feat of running over herself with her own car with no one around to witness it, all verifiable facts... think twice before dismissing it as fantasy that our leaders are not above using murder as a tool. Our goverment, especially the Bush administration, with their extensive connections through the CIA and other international goon squads, make the Mafia look like amateurs.

Pat Buchanan and other neanderthals are blathering on and trying to re-write history by saying Felt was a fink and his actions dishonorable and trying to rehabilitate Nixon once again. What do you think?

Intersting! The Bush family on the surface seems preppy, conginial and milktoast. As much as W tries, no one takes him serious with that fake Texas accent.
But I'm sure the people that surround them Carl Rove, Dick Cheney and others are partners in there treachery against this country. They may keep this WAR ON TERROR going as long as it helps Republicans get elected!

The Bush Dynasty stretches far back and has a lot of global tentacles. There definitely is a global elite both economically and politically, and the Bush clan are most definitely one of the top players. One should just read the various weird involvements that the W's various ner-do-well brother's have been involved with all around the globe.
If there could just be one hour long program on national TV discussing the background of the Bush family and their involvements with international crooks and tyrants, the country would throw little W out on his ear.

Somtimes I think people like you and me could get into trouble with all this free speech. The problem with us Dope we dont know when to shut-up. Today if you speak out against these people in power they will come after you. Look at Newsweek and Time all the press cowers in the Bush's prescence.

Dope take a glance at today's QC Times for some insight on how Watergate influenced our young minds who later became our local journalists.

Then ponder the changes in today's media strucure on the national, state and local levels in the style of reporting and editorial management and try not to get too depressed.

I suspect that today if some young reporter was really onto a big story such as Watergate that they'd have a tough time getting any ink due to the fear of litigation and the new corporate culture that has pervaded our corporately owned and operated news media.

And worse yet, average people work 3 times harder to earn a living today so they don't spend the time anymore to really follow and question the news stories so then our newly structured media culture is not held accountable for a lack of unbiased reporting anymore and can take sides if they want or be sloppy in the delivery.

All that people care about and remember are 20 second soundbytes -whether they are actually correct or not - no one cares - except to repeat their bytes at the water cooler like they are gospel.

Since I subscribe to both local newspapers and have the chance to compare daily, I can again say, the Iowa paper blows the Illinois paper out of the water each day as far as being more interesting and for reporting the news much better on all levels.

No one has yet reported any info in this blog on the Dispatch's wine and cheese party in April and I wish they would please. I bet the Dispatch is keeping that info under wraps. I hope they got taken to the woodshed by the public for their sloppy reporting and for the editors taking sides in the local elections in April - that was disgraceful.

However, since the editors probably hand picked who they wanted to attend and stacked the panel of the forum they may have heard what they wanted to hear instead of the truth about how locals feel about their rag of a paper.

I know people who have stopped buying the Dispatch in utter disgust over that....
