What Did Hollywood Know and When Did It Know It?

Reported by Judy - June 2, 2005

John Gibson's "Big Story" on Wednesday (June 1) gets my award for the biggest reach in coverage of the news concerning the identity of Watergate source Deep Throat.

Gibson raised the question of whether the movie All the President's Men conveyed hints about the identity of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein's source, Deep Throat.

Showing a picture of actor Hal Holbrook, who played Deep Throat in the film, next to one of the 91-year-old W. Mark Felt, Gibson asked, "Can we see a resemblance between the actor and the real man, Mark Felt?"

Well, yes. They're both male, white, and have white hair. But you can say that about a lot of old white men.

But that's more than enough evidence for Gibson, who concluded his far-reaching segment, "We report, you decide. We may have missed a clue."

How man clueless Fox viewers will take Gibson's "news" story and turn it into "those liberals in Hollywood knew all along"?
