description

In this video, reporting legends, Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, compare the drama surrounding President Donald Trump's White House with the scandals that plagued the Nixon administration. The duo, formerly of The Washington Post, are best known for their reporting on the Watergate cover-up, an effort by former President Richard Nixon to interfere with the Democratic Party during his re-election bid in the early 1970s.

In their speeches, Woodward and Bernstein pull the curtain back on Washington DC and its leaders, captivating audiences with stories that are sometimes surprising, at times shocking, and always fascinating. They blend stories that are both up to-the-minute and from the past, providing historical context to the day’s biggest news and riveting audiences with the real events that unfolded as they covered the Watergate scandal. Woodward and Bernstein tap into four decades of political knowledge and experience to brilliantly break down how we got here, what to draw from the latest stories, and what’s likely still to come.

In the early 1970s, Bernstein and Bob Woodward broke the Watergate story for The Washington Post, leading to the resignation of President Richard Nixon and setting the standard for modern investigative reporting, for which they and The Post were awarded the Pulitzer Prize. Since then, Bernstein has continued to build on the theme he and Woodward first explored in the Nixon years – the use and abuse of power: political, media, financial, cultural and spiritual power. Renowned as a prose stylist, he has also written a classic biography of Pope John Paul II, served as the founding editor of the first major political website, and been a rock critic.
