Greedstein Book Due in July

Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein are rushing out their book on Deep Throat for a July 6 publication date, according to Editor & Publisher. The book's title will be “The Secret Man: The Story of Watergate's Deep Throat.”

Seems the two wealthy, unbelievably greedy journalists are going all-out to pre-empt a competing book by the ailing, now 91-year-old man who handed them their careers on a silver platter. Says E&P: "The family of the 'man,' W. Mark Felt, is also shopping a memoir now, but it will lag far behind, even if they do find a publisher quickly."

Greedstein, as they should be known from now on, have set a new low for ingratitude and general cheesiness. Would it have killed them to let Felt collaborate on their book? You can expect the media-watching establishment, which has launched an avalanche of hype over the whole thing, to give Greedstein a pass over their grasping, deplorable conduct.
