“deep throat” director dies

There’s always that strange feeling when you mention something one day and find something about it in the news shortly afterwards.  No sooner had I made mention of Deep Throat as the Watergate source for Woodward and Berstein than the Times reports today that the original XXX film’s director died. The obituary even mentions the Watergate connection, showing how firmly Watergate has been connected to all kinds of pop culture. In theory, that’s what we hope to do in class:  sensitize you to important issues in journalism and then observe the many references and current implications of them in the news of the day.  It just doesn’t always happen immediately.
