Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Arguably one of the most recognized investigative journalists of the 20th century, Bob Woodward became legendary after just months on the job at the Washington Post when he and partner Carl Bernstein doggedly reported on the Watergate scandal in 1972. With the help of an unnamed source dubbed Deep Throat, the pair helped reveal a massive White House cover-up, which ultimately led to the resignation of President Nixon. They chronicled the events in their best-selling book, All the President's Men (1974), which was turned into an award-winning movie. While Bernstein returned to daily reporting, Woodward became an investigative reporter capable of gaining access to high levels of government when others had failed. Throughout the years, he wrote a number of books that detailed behind-the-scenes decision-making during various presidencies, including Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA, 1981-1987 (1987), which covered the covert wars of President Reagan, and The Agenda: Inside the Clinton White House (1994), which showcased President Clinton's fight for his economic recovery program.

Arguably one of the most recognized investigative journalists of the 20th century, Bob Woodward became legendary after just months on the job at the Washington Post when he and partner Carl Bernstein doggedly reported on the Watergate scandal in 1972.

They chronicled the events in their best-selling book, All the President's Men (1974), which was turned into an award-winning movie.

In the interim, Woodward investigated the life of John Belushi in his controversial 1984 book, Wired, which succeeded in enraging most of Hollywood with its brutal depiction of the comedian as drug addict. In the next century, Woodward wrote four books on the wars of George W. Bush, starting with Bush at War (2002). Despite criticism about his use of unnamed sources, Woodward remained an icon among journalists and one of the few who could claim to have pushed a sitting president out of office.
