Deep Throat: The Memories

Stephen Colbert, reminiscing about Watergate, harkens back to when he was an "8-year-old cub reporter for the old UPI syndicate":

Colbert: "Hell of a summer. I'll never forget the bustle in the newsroom, the smell of the cherry blossoms, banging Helen Thomas at the top of the Washington Monument. My parents thought I was at fat camp.

"For those of us who covered Watergate, revelations of Deep Throat's identities bring back a lot of happy memories."

John Stewart: "Happy memories? But Stephen, Watergate for many is considered to be the death of our national innocence."

Colbert: "Yes, John, that wonderful time when our nation's innocence was alive to be killed.
