Watergate journalist, author to give keynote at LSU Manship School's centennial celebration




Investigative journalist and author Carl Bernstein—who did the majority of the reporting on the Watergate scandal along with fellow Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward—has been tapped to deliver the keynote speech at a luncheon in October to mark the 100th anniversary of the LSU Manship School of Mass Communication. The luncheon is just one of a number of events scheduled for Oct. 23-26 to celebrate the centennial. Bernstein's address will come on the opening day of celebrations, at a luncheon at the LSU Union from 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Just 150 tickets are being sold for the luncheon; they are $50. A pass to all of the weekend's events is $250. You can get complete details on all of the Manship School centennial events here, and you can get tickets here. Bernstein's work with Woodward on the Watergate scandal that ultimately led to the resignation of former President Richard Nixon won the two scores of journalism awards, and also helped The Washington Post win the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 1973. Bernstein is also the author of six books and is a frequent guest and analyst on TV news programs.
