RIP, W. Mark Felt aka Deep Throat

He broke open Watergate for Woodward & Bernstein and changed history. Snitches make the world go 'round. Seriously. Depends on the motivation. You're a hero. Linda Tripp is scum. Bravo Mark. Read here.

I wouldn't call him a hero but he certainly made history in a postive way. I'd call him a whistleblower more than anything else.

Revenge motives or political motives? Felt was rare because from all evidence he thought Nixon's people were crazy and crooks. His motive was "pure" and he tried to stay in the shadows.
