Bob Woodward - One Of The Best!

I was a teenager during the Watergate scandal and was very aware of the work of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein of The Washington Post -- in fact, it was their investigative journalism, and later, their book, All The President's Men, and the movie of the same name, that gave me interest in journalism -- I wanted to be them!

Well, I spent 15 years in newspaper journalism and still do some freelance writing. Writing is a passion. Accurate writing is a passion. Woodward and Bernstein do/did both.

That's why it didn't surprise me to see Bob Woodward's latest book -- Fear: Trump in the White House -- and the brohaha it has ignited. If you don't know by now, it is about the current White House and it's goings-on. And it's not favorable. Gee, what a surprise.

I haven't read the book yet -- but I will. I trust Bob Woodward to be as accurate and truthful as he has been throughout his distinguished career. That's the Golden Rule of his generation of journalists and he hasn't forgotten it.
