Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s work uncovering the Watergate scandal earned them the Pulitzer Prize and was called “maybe the single greatest reporting effort of all time” by Gene Roberts, then managing editor of The New York Times. Years later, the revelations of Watergate that led to President Nixon’s resignation still cast a long shadow. At this special NJSBA/NJICLE showcase presentation, Woodward will bring audiences on a journey and share how Watergate forever altered the nature of the presidency, Washington and journalism. Have the lessons of Watergate been forgotten or ignored? How did post-Watergate ethics laws embolden Congress and the media? How have the privacy and protections once expected by the nation’s chief executive changed? Throughout the program, Woodward will draw from internal memos, classified documents, meeting notes and hundreds of hours of interviews with most of the key players (including Presidents) to offer insights into what Watergate means to America in 2017 and beyond.After his presentation, Mr. Woodward will take questions from the audience and participate in a compelling round table discussion with some of New Jersey’s top legal experts and journaliststhis special presentation!Don’t miss this special presentation!
