40 Years On, Woodward And Bernstein Recall Reporting On Watergate [npr.org]

Many people know All the Presidents Men as a film: a hit movie about the two young reporters who cracked the Watergate conspiracy. Its the only blockbuster that centers on two guys making phone calls, organizing paper notes and meeting a source called Deep Throat in a parking garage.

But before the movie, there was a book, which came out 40 years ago this month. In it, reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein tell the story of how they uncovered the scandal.It all started in the Watergate hotel and office complex in Washington.

Woodward and Bernstein had to overcome distrust — even suspicion — when they began working together. But as they explain to NPRs Steve Inskeep, they quickly built a close, collaborative relationship that continues to this day.

In June 1972, on the sixth floor, the headquarters of the national Democratic Party became a crime scene. Men planted listening devices inside the headquarters, and then burglars trying to maintain those devices were caught inside the Watergate.

Forty years later, those white-walled offices are vacant. Looking around the empty rooms, Bernstein tells NPRs Steve Inskeep that he can envision how they looked during the arrest — not in real life, but in the film. “In the movie, you see the arrest,” Bernstein explains.
