Patrick Gray on ABC

It was an interesting interview, but not a blockbuster. ABC could have done more with it had they wanted to. The main problem was that they did not do a very good job of putting Gray's statements into the context of the Watergate story and Felt's role in it. They are still fixated on the "limits of loyalty" angle. As i've tried to show here, the crucial questions relate to the truthfulness of Felt's leaks and the reliability of Woodward and Bernstein as reporter/historians.

Here's a newspaper account based on the transcript ABC provided reporters.
