Carl Bernstein

Journalist and Author
In the early 1970s, Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward broke the Watergate story for The Washington Post, leading to the resignation of President Richard Nixon and setting the standard for modern investigative reporting, for which they and The Post were awarded the Pulitzer Prize. With Woodward, Bernstein wrote two classic best-sellers: All the President’s Men (also a movie starring Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman), about their coverage of the Watergate story; and The Final Days, about the denouement of the Nixon presidency.
 
Bernstein is currently at work on several multi-media projects, including a memoir. He is also an on-air political analyst for CNN and a contributing editor of Vanity Fair magazine. His most recent book, A Woman In Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton, published by Knopf, was a national bestseller acclaimed as the definitive biography of its subject
