Did Woodward embellish Deep Throat?

New York magazine excerpts a forthcoming biography of Ben Bradlee, Yours in Truth by Jeff Himmelman, which suggests the legendary Washington Post editor was skeptical about certain aspects of Bob Woodward’s claims about Watergate informant “Deep Throat.”

According to material from Bradlee’s own archive, he expressed “fear in my soul” that Woodward had embellished key details of his reporting.

However, Woodward tells Politico that Himmelman “failed to include” a much more recent interview he did with Bradlee that was more supportive of Woodward.”
