IUP’s Journalism Department will host a showing of All the President’s Men at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2009, in Beard Auditorium in Stouffer Hall, in preparation for Mr. Bob Woodward’s visit to our campus on Nov. 4.

This 1976 movie is the story about reporters Bob Woodward (played by Robert Redford) and Carl Bernstein (played by Dustin Hoffman) uncovering the details of the Watergate scandal that led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation. It won four Oscars, plus another ten wins and twenty nominations.

The movie’s tagline: “At times it looked like it might cost them their jobs, their reputations, and maybe even their lives.”

Stay after the movie to participate in a facilitated discussion about journalism with IUP faculty members from the Journalism Department. This event is sponsored by the IUP chapters of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) and the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ).

Pulitzer Prize-winning author and investigative reporter Bob Woodward will speak on November 4, 2009, in Fisher Auditorium at the IUP Performing Arts Center as part of the First Commonwealth Endowed Lecture series.
