Watergate at 50: Shaping The Story
Manage episode 337781527 series 2974029
The Watergate story would never have been told without the relentless work of a number of journalists, not just Woodward and Bernstein. To that end, Shane and David are back in Episode 6 of their Watergate at 50 series to talk about the people left out of the history as told in popular culture.
In this show, the guys introduce you to the city editor of the Washington Post, the man whose name was listed first on their Pulitzer Prize for coverage of Watergate, Barry Sussman. Plus, how all that leaking worked; how the media failed to make people care about the story before the 1972 election; how by the Spring the White House can't get out of the way anymore; and Leon Jaworski proves to be just as adept as his predecessor in the Special Prosecutor's office.
