Examples of this are legion, from the real world example of Bob Woodward and Mark Felt, popularly known as “Deep Throat” during the Watergate Era, or fictionalized a la “House of Cards”, where a young reporter turns her access to the Majority Whip of the US Congress into online scoops that make her a short-lived star....
