KHA Political Advocacy and Grassroots Breakfast
From the Lessons of Watergate to the Trump White House
During this breakfast, Carl Bernstein, Pulitzer Prize winning author and legendary journalist, will take the audience on a journey back to the Watergate break-in and the monumental issues that emanated from it. Attendees will hear stories and insights from a view that only those closest to the situation could have witnessed. Bernstein will connect those historical moments to the Trump administration, presenting the current political environment from a totally unique perspective. This glimpse at history and its connection to today is a story you won't want to miss. In the early 1970s, Bernstein and Bob Woodward broke the Watergate story for The Washington Post for which they and The Post were awarded the Pulitzer Prize. Together, they wrote two classic best sellers: All the President's Men, about their coverage of the Watergate story; and The Final Days, about the denouement of the Nixon presidency. Today, Bernstein is a political analyst for CNN, a contributing editor for Vanity Fair magazine and a former Washington Bureau Chief and correspondent for ABC News.
