Mark Felt calls Howard to suggest he read a Woodward & Bernstein article about the Watergate break-in. Felt is looking at a copy of The Washington Post dated June 17, 1972 (which was the date the "plumbers" were caught). Bernstein was not assigned to the story until the next day, when he covered the arraignment in local court. Woodward teamed up with Bernstein even later. Thus, there's no way there could be an article by Woodward & Bernstein in the issue of the paper Felt is looking at. Indeed, the bylines on all the visible articles are by other reporters.
