"Alicia Shepard has long been one of the nation's most important writers on journalism. Now she turns her attention to two of history's most famous journalists. It is a fascinating tale of young reporters who got sudden fame and fortune early in their lives, and how Woodward prospered while Bernstein foundered. When "letters and telegrams" pour in from all over the country to them, it is not necessary to quote from so many.
Woodward and Bernstein book. Woodward nor Bernstein ever claimed that Deep Throat had the key to Watergate. Instead, he served as a sounding board for Mr. Woodward, pointing the reporter in the right direction by asking provocative questions. Mr. Woodward never voluntarily disclosed the identity of his source, and then did so only reluctantly after Mark Felt's family decided that what they deemed his heroic role should be acknowledged before he died.
Woodward and Bernstein: Life in the Shadow of Watergate. by Alicia C. Shepard. But the scholarship meant that he would owe the navy four years of his life after graduation. I had a girlfriend that moved to New Jersey and that’s why I went to Yale, Woodward told the Houston Chronicle in 1974. The girlfriend was Kathleen Middlekauff. His college professors were literary lions Robert Penn Warren, the author of All the King’s Men, and Cleanth Brooks. Back then, I saw him as a very complex and creative person, said Kathleen.

Woodward forgot the lessons of Watergate, and while writing a slew of bestsellers, regularly comes under fire for becoming so close to his highly placed stories that he becomes more stenographer to power than investigative reporter. He also stood at the center of the biggest scandal in Post history, when his protégé had her Pulitzer revoked, when it turned out the subject of her features-an eight year old drug addict-simply didn’t exist. It’s possible this conundrum is what drew Woodward to the subject of his first post-Watergate book. Wired was the biography of a man who’d just seen his peak at an early age, John Belushi, who burnt out like a shooting star, and died in a hotel, never having to face decades of decline.
Based on new interviews and never-before-seen archival materials, ""Woodward and Bernstein"" takes a fresh, thought-provoking look at this unlikely journalistic duo. Thrown together by fate or luck, Woodward and Bernstein changed the face of journalism and the American presidency. For the first time, Shepard separates myth from reality as she traces the lives of the iconic journalists before and after Watergate.

Alicia Shepard is the author of Woodward and Bernstein: Life in the Shadow of Watergate. Having pored over the Watergate papers, notes, interviews and drafts sold by Woodward and Bernstein in 2003 to the University of Texas for 5 million dollars, she challenges the reporter's sole ownership of this chapter in American history .
