Friday, June 3: Watergate and American Journalism

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Watergate and the subsequent resignation of Richard Nixon had a profound impact on journalism. RadioWest looks at the recent revelation of former FBI deputy director Mark Felt as "Deep Throat" to help understand the role of anonymous sources, and recent debates over a federal shield law for journalists.
