CARL BERNSTEIN and MICHAEL STEELE
moderated by ERROL LOUIS
October 22, 2017 at 3:00PM
Few journalists in America’s history have had the impact on their era and their craft as Carl Bernstein. For 40 years, from All the President’s Men to A Woman-In-Charge: The Life of Hillary Clinton, Bernstein’s books, reporting, and commentary have revealed the inner-workings of government, politics, and the hidden stories of Washington and its leaders. In the early 1970s, Bernstein and Bob Woodward broke the Watergate story in The Washington Post, leading to the resignation of President Richard Nixon and setting the standard for modern investigative reporting, for which they and The Post were awarded the Pulitzer Prize. Since then, Bernstein has continued to build on the theme he and Woodward first explored in the Nixon years–the use and abuse of power: political, media, financial, cultural and spiritual power. Bernstein addresses the increasing dysfunction of America’s governmental institutions and its devolving political-media culture. • Michael Steele is a political analyst for MSNBC. He has been a contributor on the Fox News Channel and a regular host for the Salem Radio Network’s nationally syndicated Morning in America Show. Additionally, Mr. Steele has appeared on cable political talk shows such as HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher and Comedy Central’s Daily Show and The Colbert Report. Most recently, Michael Steele served as Chairman of the Republican National Committee (2009 – 2011). He earned a place in history in 2003 when he was elected Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, becoming the first African American elected to statewide office in the state. An expert on political strategy and election reform, he served as Chairman of GOPAC (2007-2009), and also held posts on the National Federal Election Reform Commission and the NAACP Blue Ribbon Commission on Election Reform. Michael Steele is President and CEO of The Steele Group, a company he formed in 1999 to design business strategies. • Errol Louis is the Political Anchor of NY1 News, where he hosts Inside City Hall, a nightly prime-time show about New York City politics, on which he interviews top political and cultural leaders.
