Magazine Cover of the Week: Newsweek’s ‘Beyond Deep Throat’

unnamed-5It’s Friday, almost the weekend, and therefore, time to gather up your reading list…everything you saw this week but didn’t have time to actually read.

This week, FishbowlDC presents the latest issue of Newsweek and Max Holland’s cover story “Beyond Deep Throat – The Hidden Sources That Brought Down Nixon in Watergate.”

Referring to Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein as Woodstein, Holland writes:

“Now a document has surfaced in an unlikely place that sheds sorely needed light on Woodstein’s reporting while providing some perspective on the press’s role in uncovering the scandal…Oddly enough, the document—a draft of a Woodstein story from January 1973—was buried deep within the papers of Alan J. Pakula, director of the eponymous 1976 Hollywood film based on Woodstein’s best-seller…The 15-page draft article is an unprecedented guide to how the Post’s reporting duo utilized the many anonymous sources they had painstakingly cultivated.”
