With Ben Bradlee, Vice President at Large

The Washington Post

It began with a "third-rate burglary." It ended with the resignation of a president. When five burglars were arrested in the early morning hours of June 17, 1972, at the Democratic National Committee offices, no one could figure out the significance of the event, and no one could have guessed where it would lead.

Are the effects of Watergate still present in American politics? How did it change the way that the press does its job? How did it change the way Americans look at their government? Washington Post Vice President at Large Ben Bradlee and Washington Post Assistant Managing Editor Bob Woodward discussed these and other questions at "Watergate Revisited," a special forum on the 30th anniversary of the Watergate break-in on Monday, June 17, at noon EDT. The event took place at The George Washington University and an archived version of the Webcast appears at the top right of the page. Woodward and Bradlee took questions from both the studio and online audience. Can't view the show? Get the plug-in.
