WaPo Gags on Deep Throat’s Obit

What a pity…having to issue two corrections to an obituary of the guy who put your paper on the map:

    Correction to This Article

    Earlier versions of this story, including in the print edition of Friday’s Washington Post, incorrectly said Mark Felt died at a hospice. Felt died at his home in California, under hospice care. Also, this article said that Felt believed he was acting with the approval of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover when he authorized break-ins at the homes of people thought to be affiliated with the Weather Underground. Hoover had died several months earlier; Felt believed he had the approval of the interim director, L. Patrick Gray.

One WaPo readers wants a plaque erected in Felt’s honor.
