9. I'm a Bernstein fan, not a Woodward fan

 

I always thought it odd back then that "Deep throat" only spoke to Woodward.

Throw breadcrumbs out there for a trail to follow, and you follow the breadcrumbs to the natural conclusion that the one putting the breadcrumbs out there wants you to get to.
Woodward would give them that IMHO, Bernstein would question it.

The powers that be wanting Nixon out, and Nixon's ideas out (IMHO)

Woodward gave them that.In return he got the keys to the empire handed to him.
(Sadly much like Tom Brokaw got that Dan Rather didn't).

Note that while Bernstein has done some great work in the years since, he does not have the access that Woodward has, and more important- he does not have the links to get it done.

Again, why was "Deep Throat" Just for Woodward when everything else was done in their
name together?
