Visiting Presidential Professor Carl Bernstein, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author, will talk about the 2016 Presidential Campaign on Monday, April 6, at the Javits Lecture Center, Room 100. Doors open at 7:45 pm.
What do news consumers need to know about Clinton, Bush, Cruz and Christie? How will you find out the truth before you vote? In an informal conversation brought to you by the Center for News Literacy at the Stony Brook University School of Journalism, Bernstein will address these questions.
In the 1970s Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward became the most famous journalists in America when they exposed the Watergate story while working at The Washington Post, consequently bringing about the resignation of President Richard Nixon. Not only did they break the biggest story in American politics, they set the standard for modern investigative reporting. Bernstein and Woodward went on to document the story in two classic best-selling books, All The President’s Men — also a multiple Academy Award winning film — and The Final Days. Bernstein also wrote the national bestseller, A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
