It may be hard to say "De mortuis nil nisi bonum" about Mark Felt, aka Deep Throat

Patrick J. Buchanan: "'De mortuis nil nisi bonum.'" Nixon always paid the price for going after Alger Hiss by the establishment. The same crowd ran cover for JFK and LBJ. And RFK was always, in the mind of the hagiographers, able to live down the loathsome wiretapping of MLK. A fair-minded press is an attribute of a free republic, a partisan press is a cancer on it.
