Carl Milton Bernstein was born on February 14, 1944. In addition to being an investigative journalist, he is also an author. In 1972, Bernstein and Bob Woodward were young reporters for The Washington Post, and they covered the Watergate scandal together. The government conducted numerous investigations due to these scandals, ultimately leading to President Richard Nixon's resignation. By longtime journalist Gene Roberts, Woodward and Bernstein's work was one of the greatest reporting efforts ever.
The Washington Star hired him as a copyboy at 16, and he worked his way up quickly.
New Jersey's Elizabeth Daily Journal hired Bernstein as a full-time reporter in 1965.
His writing style, which became known as one of the best in the paper, helped him become one of the best reporters in the paper by 1966. After that, Bernstein began reporting for The Washington Post.
Bernstein and Bob Woodward were assigned to cover a break-in at the Watergate office complex earlier in the morning on a Saturday in June 1972.
The Watergate reporting earned Bernstein a reputation that made him expand into other fields.
For The New Republic magazine's cover story in 1992, Bernstein indicted modern journalism for sensationalism and celebrating gossip over actual news. It was titled "The Idiot Culture."
