About Carl Bernstein

In the early 1970s, Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward broke the Watergate story for The Washington Post, leading to the resignation of President Richard Nixon and setting the standard for modern investigative reporting, for which they and The Post were awarded the Pulitzer Prize.

A political analyst for CNN and a contributing editor at Vanity Fair, Bernstein’s recently released book, Chasing History: A Kid in the Newsroom, became an instant New York Times bestseller. It tells the story of Bernstein’s earliest days in journalism at The Washington Evening Star, where he began his career during the Kennedy era as a 16-year-old copyboy.

With Woodward, Bernstein wrote two classic best-sellers: All the President’s Men (also a movie starring Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman), about their coverage of the Watergate story; and The Final Days, about the denouement of the Nixon presidency.

Bernstein was born and raised in Washington, DC and began his journalism career at age 16 as a copyboy, becoming a reporter at 19. He lives in New York with his wife and is the father of two sons, one a journalist and the other a rock musician.
