All the President's Men Scene 13

Scene 13

Scene 13

  • At a news meeting, the executives argue about the Watergate story and whether or not they should have two relatively inexperienced journalists (#Woodstein, y'all) on it.
  • The editor-in-chief doesn't even believe the story.
  • Bradlee calls a meeting with Woodward and Bernstein.
  • Bradlee isn't happy that Woodward has an unnamed source named "Deep Throat" and that the White House denies everything they write.
  • He wants good sources. With names. Real names, not porn film names.
  • They approach Kay Eddy, who works in the newsroom, because she was engaged to a guy on the Committee to Re-Elect the President.
  • They ask her for a list of the people who work there.
  • But she doesn't want to see that guy again.
  • Woodward walks away. He tells Bernstein that "it's over." Like disco and bell bottoms.
  • However Kay soon delivers the list of names. Kay is a-okay.
