THE TRUTH ABOUT BOB WOODWARD: At NRO, Conrad Black writes, “Forty years after Watergate, the myth is unraveling.”

The myth had certainly gotten inflated over the years — I did a double-take of the seventies-era photo atop Black’s article, just to make sure it actually was Woodward and Bernstein, and not Redford and Hoffman. And Victor Lasky tried 35 years ago to help bring it down to earth. But it’s telling that the people who really began the demolition job on Woodward’s rep this year were his own successors at the Washington Post.  (With Robert Redford piling on earlier this week in an effort to help finish the job.)
