(Studio: Aaron Brown) Live discussion held with "Slate" magazine columnist Tim Noah†, "Washington Post" media columnist Howard Kurtz & former presidential adviser Harvard's David Gergen about Watergate, "Deep Throat" & W. Mark Felt; Gergen's NPR statement of September 7, 2000, about skullduggery quoted. [From Boston, GERGEN - says he believes "Deep Throat" did not act in an honorable way & should have used his powers inside government; states there was a revenge factor here.] [NOAH - says Felt was a lawbreaker, not a hero & his motive was bureaucratic.] [From Los Angeles, KURTZ - says Watergate changed journalism in a profound way; states Felt worked for a corrupt Justice Department.]
