President Nixon was at least a patriot, unlike this current bunch of jackasses! Where is Mark Felt when this country truly needs one? Not an honest man left Washington?
Woe to the republic!
Interesting.....and eminently believable.
Woodward and Bernstein were nothing more than tools, chisels used to chip away at a man Katherine Graham and Ben Bradlee (publisher and managing editor of the Com-Post, respectively) absolutely hated. Now we come to find out that these “noble” reporters were also used like cheap whores by a disgruntled FBI power-player. It’s not much of a surprise.
Like the recently departed Saint Mike Wallace, Woody and Berenstain are worthy of nothing but our loathing.
A “third-rate burglary” where nobody was killed or even injured, led to the end of a presidency, and the AG in prison.
Now we have Obama’s and Holder’s “Operation Fast And Furious,” with 300+ murdered Mexicans, and two murdered federal agents, and the MSM hits the snooze button and actually helps to cover it up.
What an era we live in.
Today, ABCNNBCBS are full partners in Gangster Govt Inc. American Pravda, no more, no less.
Where are the Woodwards and Bernsteins of today?
Ever since Watergate, the press has been trying to produce an encore, but have just managed to practice the politics of personal destruction to the point that good people are leery of running for anything.
The press not only did not save the Republic, they have sent it down the road to destruction, and Watergate was the pivot point.
The press always claimed ownership of Watergate.....yet it was really a product of Nixon’s paranoia.....
Here, after 40 years, is the bold unvarnished truth.
Where is the Woodward of today? The abuses of Obama and his Administration are an exponential component of a "political break-in".
When you realize they brought down a sitting President in the midst of the end of the Vietnam War and in the midst of the Cold War with the Soviet Union, from mid 1972-August 1974, these leftists tied us up in knots in the midst of a very dangerous time.
As for the pefidy of Obama, the Post sees nothing, a veritable journalistic Sgt. Schulz. They could see no evil when the Clintons were co-Presidents either.
And Woodward and Bernstein went along with the fame and adulation, as if they had saved the free world.
Democrats truly are the enemies of freedom and need to be roundly defeated in November--at ALL levels.
Mark Felt was a snake. He used the Post to destroy his rivals and advance his ambitions, and the Post didn’t care what his motives were because Felt was assisting them in destroying their old enemy.”
I was going to write something like this, but Pat said it perfectly and truthfully.
Mark Felt - a sociopathic snake... at best.
Leaking details of an ongoing investigation was as least as bad as Nixon’s role in the Watergate coverup. The fact that Woodward and Bernstein either failed to recognize this, or did recognize it, but exploited it for their own ambition speaks volumes about their integrity,
W. Mark Felt, Deep Throat
The truth can't be a Hellfire missile until it becomes a best-selling non-fiction book upon which an Academy Award-winning film is produced. Until then, almost nobody will have heard about this or been affected by it. It's more like a Bic lighter than a Hellfire missile.
Katherine Graham and Ben Bradlee took two "reporters" to use as the lead men on a 3rd rate story and blow it all out of proportion with innuendo and supposition, but most importantly with untraceable and unverifiable "secret source" fabrication.
If it all blew up in the face of The Post, the only ones in jeopardy were the, heretofore, two, obscure, unknown, office lackeys/reporters known as Woodward and Bernstein. Who served as stenographers for the story and found fame and fortune as they went undiscovered, unchallenged, and unchecked in their and The Post's deceit.
Then in 1980, as assistant managing editor of The Post, Bob Woodward, a truly fast learner, borrowed a page from Ben Bradlee's playbook and submitted a story for another Pulitzer Prize written by another obscure office lackey/Affirmative Action hired reporter named Janet Cooke. Who, incidentally lied about her journalistic and educational background on her job application to the Post. What better stooge for Woodward to have than one so easily discredited in the event of the story blowing up in the face of the venerable Post!
And, unlike the Watergate adventure into journalistic mendacity where the "evil" Richard Nixon was portrayed as a paranoid president whom nobody liked was the target, "Jimmy's World" did indeed turn out to be a figment of the fevered imaginations of The Post newsroom and Janet did tumble for the deceit. Who would possibly believe her over the great reporter who destroyed Nixon? And whom Ben Bradlee kept around as an insurance policy and buffer between himself and discovery of the Watergate fairy tale.
JMHO as one who lived through it all from the "You won't have Dick Nixon to kick around anymore," to Dita Beard and the ITT, Republican convention front page news, non-scandal, to the Pentagon Papers, Watergate, John Mitchell, Martha Mitchell, etc., etc., etc. and finally realized: Who after living through all of that would NOT have an enemies list? Paranoid??!!?? Hell's Belles they WERE out to destroy him.
Who, or what, is this guy? A former junior Naval Intelligence operative (ONI) with some kind of access to every intel guy with an axe to grind? Every disappointed office seeker? Deep, deep roots to somewhere; to something no one can quite figure out.
To top it off, in his books, one of the gudamdist liars ever to come down the Pike to Hell. Bernstein had an excuse. He is just plain stupid as only an uneducated Leftist can be. Woodward? That's the story.
