Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter is no doubt celebrating the magazine’s big publishing coup for outing “Deep Throat” ahead of the Washington Post. The monthly glossy’s in-house publicist Beth Kseniak was likely giddy with excitement these last few weeks/months over the prospect of publicizing this story, which I was told was initiated by Carl Bernstein’s son (who toils for VF owner Conde Nast). It was at a company outing where the beans spilled. Also, I was told that the Mr. Felt’s daughter actually references “Deep Throat” on her home answering machine these last few months. Gee. It’s amazing that this didn’t spill any sooner.
Congrats VF. (Now let’s watch the Nixon revisionists demonize the 91-year-old former FBI man.)
