Deep Throat and Reasonable Doubt

What does Deep Throat teach us about trials? 

Well, we now know Deep Throat's identity.  But several journalism students and their professor, weighing and sifting all the evidence, concluded it was someone else.  They were certain that Fred Fielding was Deep Throat.  Deep Throat:Uncovered.  They were certainly wrong. 

I don't want to take shots at the students or their professor, who researched Deep Throat's identity in good faith.  Rather, their extensive research and illustrates how easy it is to pin an offense on the wrong man. 

Because talented and intelligent people who examine all available evidence can reach the wrong conclusion is why we have reasonable doubt.
