If there’s one thing no one can deny, it’s that technology has changed everything.
Recently I re-watched the 1976 movie All The President’s Men,
a film I saw for the first time as a requirement for a journalism
class. The story based on factual events follows Washington Post
journalists Bob Woodward (Robert Redford) and Carl Bernstein (Dustin
Hoffman) as they uncovered the Watergate scandal that took place between
1972 and 1974, which ultimately resulted in the resignation of
President Richard Nixon.
Through unnamed sources, doubts, denials,
relentless phone calls and trips to the library, the complex series of
events transformed to a possibility to a confirmation.
