If my little graphic hasn't already spelled it out enough, Deep Throat exposed himself in the upcoming Vanity Fair. I had once read that his identity would be kept a secret until he died. But as my cohort Flamingo Jones pointed out, he probably wants to cash in on his infamy. To follow the money, as he might say.
So who is W. Mark Felt? At the time, he was the second in command at the FBI. Everyone involved, including Woodward and Bernstein, has corroborated his story. Apparently, this is no joke.
Still, discovering that Deep Throat was this guy is like finding out that Area 51 is a cactus farm. Oh well; there's always Bush's military records as the last Big Secret left in America.
If you're interested in Deep Throat the movie, here's your cheap thrill, freak.
