Bob Woodward - "How We Got Here: The State of the American Presidency

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward presents :

"How We Got Here: The State of the American Presidency"

Part of the Miami University 2020-2021 Lecture Series. 

Woodward, an Associate Editor of the Washington Post, has shared in two Pulitzer Prizes, first in 1973 for coverage of the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein which produced the book, All the President’s Men, and second in 2003 as the lead reporter for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

No one else in political investigative journalism has the clout, respect, and reputation of Woodward. He has a way of getting insiders to open up in ways that reveal an intimate yet sweeping portrayal of Washington and the political maneuvering of its denizens, including how presidents lead.

Woodward has authored 19 books:

  • Fear: Trump in the White House, became a #1 international bestseller, selling over 1.1 million copies in its first week in September 2018, breaking a 94-year-old sales record for its publisher Simon & Schuster.
  •  Rage, published September 2020, and based on 18 interviews Woodward had with Trump, instantly hit the top of the best seller lists.

No one digs deeper or has provided a more detailed or penetrating portrait of the presidents from Nixon to Trump than Bob Woodward.

Bob Schieffer of CBS News has said, “Woodward has established himself as the best reporter of our time. He may be the best reporter of all time.”

The speaker and presenters were great but Zoom sessions with people who are on tv and youtube all the time anyway seem somewhat pointless; save the zoom for local people and issues of great specific interest to Miami people

This was an excellent talk! Really enjoyed the Q&A at the end. Perhaps the student hosts could refrain from saying "Awesome!" as a response to everything, especially on topics such as the massive death toll of the COVID19 pandemic.
