Redford Weighs In

So, it turns out Robert Redford isn't Bob Woodward after all. He had no idea who Deep Throat was.

Well, some idea. Redford, who played Woodward in the Watergate movie "All the President's Men," told Editor & Publisher's Greg Mitchell that he suspected Deep Throat was in the FBI. But the actor guessed that Woodward's source was agency director L. Patrick Gray, not Mark Felt.

There's a lot of "revisionism" today from people who say "I always knew it was Felt," Redford added, but said he would not join in.

Interesting. Good casting on the Hal Holbrook side. By knowing, what do we do with that information? Does it mean that government has leaks all over the place? Does that cause paranoia within the government itself?

"By knowing, what do we so with that information?"

Well, there are known unknowns, and known knowns. And there are unknown knowns, and unknown unknowns. You know?

Redford did not tell Greg Mitchell anything. As the E&P article clearly states, Redford's comments were made on Chris Matthews' "Hardball".
