Watch the movie “All the President’s Men”. We showed it in class on Tuesday 12/23. If you were not here, you can rent it from Blockbuster or Netflix. Then answer the following 6 questions.
1. Woodward and Bernstein served as watchdogs of our government officials. What are some of the challenges they confronted as reporters unraveling the Watergate story?
2. How would you characterize Woodward and Bernstein’s reporting process? In what way did their actions exemplify ethical standards?
3. How did The Washington Post’s publisher and editors support Woodward and Bernstein?
4. What lessons does The Washington Post’s coverage of Watergate provide to journalists and the news media today?
5. Do you think that without Woodward and Bernstein (and the Washington Post), the story of Watergate would have been uncovered? Why or why not?
6. Do you think the movie was an accurate portrayal of journalism and an accurate retelling of what happened with Woodward and Bernstein?
