On this episode of The Fedora Chronicles News Of The Week, Jason Cousineau and Eric Fisk discuss the coincidence that G. Gordon Liddy passed away the same week Eric is reading "Postgate: How the Washington Post Betrayed Deep Throat, Covered Up Watergate, and Began Today's Partisan Advocacy Journalism" by John O'Connor. Why was Watergate such a watershed moment for American Politics and Journalism? Why did this event change partisanship in The United States and caused an even deeper divide between the two political parties? Have the mainstream news outlets gone too far to make their programs sensationalistic by inducing the public into a constant recreational rage? Who was G. Gordon Liddy, and why should students today learn more about Watergate and every other political scandal during the past 60 years?
