    • Poynter, "A Rememberance of Courage", 2002/08/20: "The piece that I might add to the story is the perspective of a lawyer who worked with a large team to resist hostile challenges to the licenses of the two television stations owned by the Washington Post in Florida -- WPLG in Miami and WJXT in Jacksonville.

      The Federal Communications Commission reviewed all the television licenses in a given state at a single time. Applications for Florida were up for review beginning in early 1973 just after Richard Nixon had been reelected in a landslide victory despite the early revelations about Watergate. Many of these reports came from the Washington Post's investigation.


      In 1973, there were some 30 television stations in Florida and only two were challenged. These two, WJXT in Jacksonville and WPLG in Miami, were both owned by Post-Newsweek and the story of these challenges is worth repeating."
    • Politico, "Nixon's newspaper war", 2014/08/08: "The Post’s publisher during Watergate, Katharine Graham, faced a lot of pressure from the Nixon administration and wrote about the threats to the Post’s TV licenses in her biography.

      “Of all the threats to the company during Watergate — the attempts to undermine our credibility, the petty slights, and the favoring of the competition — the most effective were the challenges to the licenses of our two Florida television stations,” she wrote. “No doubt there was a mixture of motives among the challengers — the perception of blood in the water, easy pickings, and understandable thinking that the atmosphere was right given the Nixon-dominated FCC.”"
  • Back in 1995, freelance journalist Wendell Woodman anticipated that "Deep Throat" was Mark Felt, drawing on the Votescam story
