Who is the real Bob Woodward?
The Man With the Inside Scoop by Howard Kurtz, Washington Post "For Bob Woodward, Proximity to Power Cuts Both Ways"
Has Woodward been a willing facillitator for the administration's propaganda? Or is he still that dynamo investigative reporter of "Deep Throat" fame? Kurtz looks at Woodward from both angles.
My own opinion is that, as his politics have changed over the years, according to David Gergen, "to be sympathetic to the establishment, especially the Republican establishment," he is too too willing to bed with his White House sources and has become somewhat of an opportunistic whore.
