All the President’s Men
All the President’s Men
Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward were young reporters at the The Washington Post when they were assigned to cover a bungled burglary at the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate building. What started out looking like a simple break-in by some not-so-competent thieves led the journalists to a trail, a sophisticated cover-up involving some renowned politicians, Republican Party power brokers, and White House aides. To get at the truth, Woodward and Bernstein had to push hard to get very frightened employees and act like covert operators, meeting secretly with anonymous sources. Ultimately, what they uncovered led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon.
In your view, write a 1 and ½ page paper in which you evaluate what the journalists did, giving examples from the film of their extraordinary efforts and how their human and paper trail led them to the truth.
Then explain IN YOUR VIEW, IF AND WHY the way they got their information was justified.
