Hero or Villian

The Washington Post's Howard Kurtz asks whether "Deep Throat" would be a hero or a villian today:

"Imagine that the White House was railing against the use of unnamed sources. Imagine that a special prosecutor was threatening to jail Woodward and Carl Bernstein, a la Matt Cooper and Judy Miller, for not revealing who in the administration was giving them confidential information."

Mr Kurtz goes on to complain how reporters have gotten sloppy with anonymous sources and how the media attaches "-gate" to just about every scandal that's come down the pike since. (WashPost)
