Woodward & Bernstein on the TU campus

Mar 27, 2012

Journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein will speak together tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Donald W. Reynolds Center on the TU campus. This event is free & open to the public; no tickets, registration, or reservations are required.

Bernstein and Woodward set a new standard for Washington journalism and in-depth, behind-the-scenes reporting on the American presidency beginning with their first shared Watergate byline in June 1972. Forty years later, the co-authors of All the President’s Men and The Final Days will tell the stories behind their writings and will explore the effects and methods of the modern media from their own police-beat-style reporting to the changes brought by the Internet, cable news and social networking tools.

A Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist best known for Watergate and All the President’s Men, Carl Bernstein’s pursuit of the truth continues to change the landscape of American journalism. For more than four decades, he has been setting the standard for modern investigative reporting and reflecting on a crucial theme that has coursed through American history: the use and abuse of power in politics, media, finance and spirituality.

From Watergate to the Supreme Court, the CIA, the Pentagon, President Clinton, the Federal Reserve, the 9/11 terrorist attacks, four books on the wars of President George W. Bush and now the Obama administration, Bob Woodward has consistently found the inside story of Washington institutions and the American presidency. Woodward has won every journalism prize imaginable, including Pulitzers for his reports on Watergate and the aftermath of September 11th.

TU's Presidential Lecture Series is sponsored by the Darcy O'Brien Endowed Chair.
