No, not that Deep Throat. Or the documentary. Via Chris Lopez, we've learned that Vanity Fair is reporting W. Mark Felt, former FBI second-in-command, revealed himself to be the famous anonymous source for Woodward and Bernstein in a recent interview.

Felt was initially adamant about remaining silent on the subject, thinking disclosures about his past somehow dishonorable.

"I don't think (being Deep Throat) was anything to be proud of," Felt indicated to his son, Mark Jr., at one point, according to the article. "You (should) not leak information to anyone."

Felt is a retiree living in Santa Rosa, Calif., with his daughter, Joan, the magazine said. He could not immediately be reached for comment by The Associated Press. His family members disagreed with their father, feeling that he should receive accolades for his role in Watergate before his death.

The interview was conducted by lawyer John D. O'Connor of local firm Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin.

Update: Our favorite pseudo-Wonkette, Greg Beato, links to the press release [PDF] and then wonders why the important questions haven't been answered.
