The release of Carl’s memoir, Chasing History, seems like the ideal time to ask the renowned Washington Post reporter and now CNN commentator about the health of our democracy over the last 60 years. Bernstein’s book looks at the start of his career from 1960-1965, when he began as a freckled copy boy, before his reporting with Bob Woodward of the Watergate break-in and its subsequent cover-up forced President Nixon to resign. The conversation spans from Martin Luther King Jr’s I Have A Dream speech at The Lincoln Memorial to the mob storming of The Capitol on January 6, 2021. It leaves Cal and the rest of us wondering about the future.
