Woodward and Bernstein's reporting was groundbreaking, and their book is a classic of American journalism. It is a must-read for anyone interested in politics, history, or the role of the press in a democratic society.

The Early Days of the Investigation

The Watergate scandal began with a break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C., on June 17, 1972. Woodward and Bernstein were assigned to cover the story, and they quickly realized that there was more to it than met the eye.

The reporters began to investigate the backgrounds of the burglars and discovered that they had ties to the Committee to Re-Elect the President (CRP),Nixon's re-election campaign. Woodward and Bernstein also learned that the CRP had been involved in a number of other illegal activities, including wiretapping and political espionage.

As Woodward and Bernstein continued their investigation, they faced pressure from the Nixon administration. The White House tried to discredit the reporters and their reporting, and even threatened to prosecute them.

The Smoking Gun

Despite the pressure, Woodward and Bernstein refused to give up. They continued to dig deeper into the scandal, and in October 1972, they published a bombshell story that revealed that Nixon had been involved in the cover-up of the Watergate break-in.

The story was a bombshell, and it led to a series of hearings in Congress. Nixon was eventually impeached by the House of Representatives, and he resigned from office in August 1974.

The Legacy of Watergate

The Watergate scandal was a watershed moment in American history. It led to the resignation of a president, and it damaged public trust in government. The scandal also had a profound impact on journalism, leading to a new era of investigative reporting.

Woodward and Bernstein's book, Reporter Remembers Watergate, is a must-read for anyone interested in the scandal that shook America. It is a gripping account of the investigation, and it provides a valuable insight into the role of the press in a democratic society.
