Mark Felt His Mythical Biography
13 September 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A new biopic about Felt, starring Liam Neeson, is due out on September 29 and shows every sign of continuing to portray Deep Throat as a profound patriot and dedicated FBI lifer.

But here's a heretical thought: Mark Felt was no hero. Getting rid of Nixon was the last thing Felt ever wanted to accomplish; indeed, he was banking on Nixon's continuation in office to achieve his one and only aim: to reach the top of the FBI pyramid and become director. Felt didn't help the media for the good of the country, he used the media in service of his own ambition. Things just didn't turn out anywhere close to the way he wanted.

ONCE AGAIN, Hollywood changes a true story to suit it's far-left childish political agenda. You know, just for once, it would be nice if those in Hollywood would actually stick to the facts (at least the big ones) and stop using these childish films to slam those with whom they disagree.

It will be hilarious to hear the actors stupidly referring to this CONSERVATIVE MAN who despised those Vietnam protesters and would not have been friends with them in real life. As I note in Getting It Wrong, Felt authorized burglaries as part of the FBI's investigations into leftists associated with the radical Weather Underground. He was convicted in 1980 of felony charges related to the break-ins, but was pardoned the following year by President Ronald Reagan. ALSO: "Deep Throat" never advised Woodward to "follow the money."

The passage appears in no Watergate-related article or editorial in the Post until June 1981, nearly seven years after Nixon's resignation. It doesn't appear, either, in All the President's Men, the book Woodward and his Post colleague, Carl Bernstein, wrote about their Watergate reporting.

"Follow the money" was written into the screenplay of All the President's Men, the cinematic adaptation of Woodward and Bernstein's book.

Why do I have a feeling that Liam will be reciting that fictional line? smh
