Blow the whistle with Bob Woodward
Bob Woodward was an Assistant Managing Editor of The Washington Post. Working with fellow reporter Carl Bernstein, they were assigned to investigate the June 17, 1972 burglary of the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee in a Washington, D.C. office building called Watergate. The scandal they helped to uncover led to U.S. President Richard Nixon's resignation.
Their book about the scandal, All the President's Men, became a #1 best-seller and was later turned into a movie. The 1976 film, starring Robert Redford as Woodward and Dustin Hoffman as Bernstein, transformed the reporters into celebrities and inspired a wave of interest in investigative journalism.
Bob Woodward has written 12 best-selling non-fiction books and has twice contributed reporting to efforts that collectively earned the Post and its National Reporting staff a Pulitzer Prize
