Woodward And Bernstein Back In Spotlight
Woodward And Bernstein Back In Spotlight, The Watergate reporters say Nixon’s White House was “far worse” than thought. Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, arguably the two most famous newspaper reporters in American history, did something on Sunday they haven’t done in 36 years: They shared a byline in the Washington Post.
Woodward and Bernstein, who are on a mini-publicity tour surrounding the 40th anniversary of the Watergate break-ins, published a joint opinion essay for the Post’s Outlook section about what they’ve learned since first reporting on the scandal: President Richard Nixon, who was forced to resign in the wake of Watergate, was “far worse than we thought.”
“The Watergate that we wrote about in The Washington Post from 1972 to 1974 is not Watergate as we know it today,” they wrote. “It was only a glimpse into something far worse.”
