Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist, Best-Selling Author & Political Analyst
Few journalists in America’s history have had the impact on history and their craft as Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Carl Bernstein. From uncovering the Watergate scandal to writing about national and international affairs, for nearly fifty years Bernstein’s books, reporting and commentary have revealed the inner workings of government and politics, and told the hidden stories of Washington and its leaders.
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. In it, Bernstein recounts his early days in journalism at The Washington Evening Star, where he began his career as a 16-year-old copyboy during the Kennedy era.
In the early 1970’s, Bernstein and his partner, Bob Woodward, captured international attention when they broke the Watergate story for The Washington Post. Woodward and Bernstein’s investigative reporting led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon, set new standards for journalism, and won the Pulitzer Prize. The pair went on to write two classic best-sellers: All the President’s Men (also a movie starring Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman) about their coverage of Watergate; and The Final Days, chronicling the end of the Nixon presidency.
Bernstein’s other best-selling books include Loyalties: A Son’s Memoir, about his family’s experiences in the McCarthy era, and His Holiness: Pope John Paul II and The History of Our Time, a biography of Pope John Paul II, co-authored with Marco Politi, that reveals the Pope’s pivotal role in the fall of communism. Bernstein’s 2008 national best-seller A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham, has been acclaimed as the definitive biography of the subject.
His magazine articles have appeared in Time, USA Today, Rolling Stone and The New Republic. From 1999-2001, Bernstein served as editor and executive vice president of Voter.com, a pioneering website that Forbes named the best political site on the internet. He has also worked as Washington bureau chief and correspondent for ABC News.
Bernstein lives in New York with his wife and is the father of two sons, one a journalist and the other a rock musician.
