Iconic journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein will give the Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD Presidential Lecture, “Looking at the Presidency: From Nixon to Obama,” at Staller Center on Thursday, October 16, at 4 pm. The lecture is free and open to the public with limited seating on a first-come, first-serve basis.
In the 1970s, Woodward and Bernstein set the standard for modern investigative reporting with a series of articles for The Washington Post that unraveled the Watergate scandal and led to the resignation of Richard Nixon. Four decades later, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists and co-authors of All the President’s Men and The Final Days are still leading the charge for informative, unbiased journalism.
Woodward, associate editor for the Washington Post, and Bernstein, Visiting Presidential Professor at Stony Brook University, are both frequent contributors on MSNBC, CNN and all other major networks.
“The opportunity to reunite Carl Bernstein — now our Presidential Professor — and Bob Woodward on the same stage at Stony Brook University should not be missed by anyone on campus or in the community,” said Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD. “This is an historic event.”
