In the pre-Web era, they had an AP news story on the identify
of deep throat. It was someone you'd heard of, but not entirely
famous. I didn't think it was a big thing at the time or else
I would have written it down. They later retracted the story
and I've never been able to find it again, because 4 years
later, they had another story on CNN about speculation who it was.
I remember thinking, how stupidly uninformed they are as they
already revealed it, but for the life of me coulldn't find the article
so now I doubt it really happened. Just a little journey into
my grad school brain-rot.
