The Kalb Report
Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein
and Journalism's Finest Hour
Monday, October 20, 2014
About the Program:
On June 17, 1972 a simple botched break-in at the Democratic National Committee Headquarters in Washington, DC captured the attention of two intrepid reporters who uncovered a trail of corruption that led all the way up to our Commander-in-Chief.
On this edition of The Kalb Report, Pulitzer Prize winning reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein join journalist/scholar Marvin Kalb to recount their coverage of the Watergate scandal and the groundbreaking reporting that ultimately resulted in the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon 40 years ago.
The Kalb Report series is produced jointly by The National Press Club Journalism Institute, the George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs, Harvard University's Shorenstein Center, University of Maryland University College and the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland.
A Conversation with U.S. Supreme Court Justices
Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg
on the First Amendment
Thursday, April 17, 2014
About the Program:
One sentence, just 45 words in length, proclaims and promises the freedoms that define American democracy. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, and the right to petition one’s government. It is the duty of the justices of the Supreme Court of the United States to interpret the constitution and to rule on the legality of legislation.
On this edition of The Kalb Report, Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg join journalist/scholar Marvin Kalb to offer their views of those 45 words in a rare glimpse behind the gavel and inside one of our nation’s vital branches of government.
