Mark Felt is Deep Throat: Several news services have just reported that in a forthcoming issue of Vanity Fair, former FBI Associate Director W. Mark Felt admits to being "Deep Throat" of Watergate fame. Felt was the #2 person at the FBI until June 1973. Felt is one of the people who has been on the list of possible names for a long time; more here, among other places.

  UPDATE: MSNBC reports that "Carl Bernstein, who with Bob Woodward broke the story as Washington Post reporters, issued a statement neither denying nor confirming Felt's claim. Bernstein stated he and Woodward would be keeping their pledge to reveal the source only once that person dies."

  ANOTHER UPDATE: The Vanity Fair article is here.

Woodward, Bernstein, and Bradlee Confirm: It's official: Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein, and Benjamin C. Bradlee have confirmed that W. Mark Felt is "Deep Throat." Bradlee has my favorite quote of the day:
"The thing that stuns me is that the goddamn secret has lasted this long."
