Bringing a half century of reporting to the headlines of today, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Carl Bernstein comments on the latest out of Washington, the nation and the world. From the White House to Congress to the 2020 presidential candidates, Bernstein brings you the personalities, issues and politics behind the biggest stories. Audiences are also treated to engaging first-hand perspectives on 50 years of American history — unforgettably delivered by one of the true heroes of modern journalism.
“I think that this is a dangerous time for America, that we have a president with no regard for the rule of law or for the truth,” Carl Bernstein said in an interview more than six months before Michael Cohen’s damning Congressional testimony. “I say those things not pejoratively. It’s reportorially established and I think that’s what’s so extraordinary.” In this riveting keynote, Bernstein demonstrates why the media have consistently turned to him to help us understand the growing scandals surrounding the Trump presidency. The Pulitzer Prize winner emphasizes the parallels and profound differences between the headlines of today and the history that he made with Bob Woodward 44 years ago. “This is worse than Watergate in the sense that the system worked in Watergate and it’s not apparent yet that the system is working in the current situation. No president has done anything like Trump…” Bringing more than a half century of covering politics, Bernstein captures this dangerous time for America with sharp analysis and riveting commentary.
"He was fantastic. His talk was so thought provoking, eloquent and current. He called me twice to discuss the crowd, content...a real professional that is not riding on his reputation but determined to build on it. We had a lot of meat industry related speakers but Carl’s content and theme is what was the main topic of conversation throughout the conference. Thank you for encouraging me to hire Carl!"
"The lecture and reception went very well. Mr. Bernstein was so nice and accommodating to all of our guests. He also drew quite a crowd. We had over 700 people turn out for the lecture. I want to thank you for all of your help. Your company has been great to work with. Thank you again for everything and please be sure to recommend Mr. Bernstein to other organizations. He truly was wonderful!"
