Who is Carl Bernstein?

Carl Bernstein is an American investigative journalist renowned for his groundbreaking work in uncovering the Watergate scandal that ultimately led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. Born on February 14, 1944, in Washington, D.C., Bernstein's career has been characterized by his commitment to exposing political corruption and holding those in power accountable. Bernstein's journalistic journey began at an early age when he dropped out of the University of Maryland to pursue a career in reporting. In the early 1970s, he joined forces with fellow journalist Bob Woodward at The Washington Post, forming one of the most iconic investigative journalism duos in history. The duo's most significant achievement was their relentless pursuit of the Watergate story, starting with the break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate complex in 1972. Bernstein and Woodward's reporting exposed a web of deceit, cover-ups, and abuses of power within the Nixon administration. Their reporting, which relied heavily on information from the mysterious informant known as "Deep Throat," revealed the extent of the administration's involvement in the break-in and subsequent attempts to obstruct justice. Their reporting, published in a series of articles in The Washington Post, earned Bernstein and Woodward the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 1973. The investigation also inspired the best-selling book All the President's Men, co-authored by Bernstein and Woodward, which later became a highly acclaimed film.

Carl Bernstein's career extends beyond Watergate, as he continued to be an influential voice in American journalism. He worked for various publications, including Time magazine and Vanity Fair, covering a wide range of topics, from politics to culture. Bernstein has consistently emphasized the importance of investigative journalism in maintaining a healthy democracy. Over the years, Bernstein has written several books, including Loyalties: A Son's Memoir, where he reflects on his upbringing and the impact of his parents' political ideologies on his own life.

Carl Bernstein's legacy is firmly rooted in his fearless pursuit of truth and his pivotal role in exposing corruption at the highest levels of government. His contributions to journalism have left an indelible mark on the profession, and he remains an influential figure in discussions about the role of the media in a democratic society.


All The President's Men

This is the book that changed America. Published just two months before President Nixon’s resignation, All the President’s Men revealed the full scope of the Watergate scandal and introduced for the first time the mysterious “Deep Throat.” Beginning with the story of a simple burglary at Democratic headquarters and then continuing through headline after headline, Bernstein and Woodward deliver the stunning revelations and pieces in the Watergate puzzle that brought about Nixon’s shocking downfall. Their explosive reports won a Pulitzer Prize for The Washington Post, toppled the president, and have since inspired generations of reporters.

All the President’s Men is a riveting detective story, capturing the exhilarating rush of the biggest presidential scandal in U.S. history as it unfolded in real time. It is, as former New York Times managing editor Gene Roberts has called it, “maybe the single greatest reporting effort of all time.”

Loyalties - A Son's Memoir

The co-author of All the President's Men and The Final Days tells his own story of growing up in a family of leftist sympathizers, a family that endured humiliation and zealous persecution in the name of patriotism. A powerful memoir of the McCarthy era.
