But this well-made documentary of 1992 errs when it concludes that Patrick Gray, FBI chief, was the source of informations for reporters Bernstein and Woodward. Earlier this year, Gray's deputy Mark Felty confessed to being Deep Throat. Narrated by Mike Wallace, this compilation of video clips, interviews and commentary is well worth watching. I especially enjoyed the clip of President Nixon shoving one of his own people and stalking away angrily. And Barry Goldwater cuts through the political BS very skillfully. Comments and commentary by Washington Post's Katherine Graham and Ben Bradlee are interesting and insightful. I rated it an 8.
