ABC News interrupted the last few minutes of Bush’s press conference to report that Vanity Fair has named W. Mark Felt as Deep Throat, a tipster says. NBC reported on it after the presser, while CBS didn’t mention it. CNN and MSNBC followed shortly thereafter. Here at the conference, staffers are buzzing about the story and holding printouts of the Vanity Fair article. FishBowlDC is all over the story…

> “While CNN is partying is Atlanta, they obviously left the B-team behind in Washington to deal with the news today,” a viewer e-mails in. “The Deep Throat coverage has been interrupted by people muttering and talking over the air, one sat interview was lost and the cut to the interview instead showed random graphics, and Suzanne has stumbled repeatedly.”
