Scene 22

Scene 22

  • Woodward and Bernstein are told by a fellow reporter that Ken Clawson wrote "the Canuck letter" a fake letter used to sabotage democratic candidate Edmund Muskie.
  • Woodward calls Clawson, who issues what Woodward calls "a non-denial denial."
  • Clawson immediately calls Sally Aikin, the reporter who told them about the letter.
  • Woodward and Bernstein listen in to the phone call.
  • The reporters relay this info to Bradlee, and Ken Clawson calls as they're talking to him.
  • Clawson says he never wrote the letter, and he doesn't want his wife to find out he was in Sally's apartment.
  • Bradlee says he won't print that Clawson was in Sally's apartment…as long as he tells him what he said in Sally's apartment. Smooth move, Bradlee.
