Opening Session Keynote Speaker.
8:15 a.m.-10:00 a.m.
Bob Woodward, managing editor of the Washington Post and famous investigative reporter, will be the Keynote Speaker at the American Correctional Association's 133rd Congress of Correction Opening Session. An American icon and award-winning journalist, Mr. Woodward's message will undoubtedly inspire attendees to make a difference in the field of corrections.
The most famous journalists in the twentieth century, Mr. Woodward and Carl Bernstein, the reporters of the Washington Post, investigated the Watergate break-in and first cracked the Watergate scandal in August 1972, which led to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon in 1974.
The first report about the break-in at the Democratic National Committee's headquarters at the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C. broke out on June 17, 1972. Most of the newspapers dismissed the story, calling the incident a "caper." Eventually their reporting made it clear that the break-in had been orchestrated by high-ranking officials of the Nixon administration and the Committee to Re-elect the President. For their reportage, the pair earned a number of journalism awards and won for the Washington Post the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for meritorious public service.
Mr. Woodward is the only contemporary American writer to author or co-author eight #1 national bestselling non-fiction books, including: All the President's Men (1974) and The Final Days (1976), both co-written with Carl Bernstein and based on their reporting of the Watergate affair. His latest book is titled Bush at War (2003).
