"During Watergate, our small staff of lawyers and press officers was outflanked and outnumbered by innumerable, highly partisan congressional staff members who leaked - 'gushed' would be a better word - to innumerable, highly ambitious reporters, all of them eager to earn points with their editors by presenting some new revelation about the Nixon White House.
