Nearly 40 years after the fact, the story of how Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein uncovered the Watergate scandal has achieved nearly epic status.
And thanks in large part to the book turned Academy Award nominated film All the President’s Men, we’ve heard all the stories of backroom meetings with anonymous sources from their investigation.
Or at least so we thought.
Specifically, we learn that the legendary editor had some questions about the duo’s encounters with Deep Throat and grand jury members. And while nothing Himmelman writes seemingly challenges the facts of the scandal, it does add a new wrinkle to the story of its discovery.
Woodward didn't find this to be newsworthy either. Bernstein took things a little more light-heatedly.
All in all, neither Himmelman nor Bradlee really saw these details as damning the work of Woodward or Bernstein.
