Published in June 1974, two years after the Watergate break-in and two months before Nixon's resignation, All the President's Men chronicled Woodward and Bernstein's struggles, failures, and eventual success in uncovering the Watergate story. Drawing on the notes and research accumulated while writing their stories for The Washington Post, the book revealed for the first time the existence of Woodward's highly placed and highly secretive source "Deep Throat," promoting wide speculation on his identity. The book remained on best-seller lists for six months and was later turned into a hugely successful 1976 movie, forever linking Woodward and Bernstein's names with investigative journalism and Nixon's fall.

The most famous journalists in the 20th century appeared in the first half of 1970s. Robert Upshur Woodward and Carl Bernstein, the reporters of the Washington Post, investigated the Watergate break-in and first cracked the Watergate scandal in August 1972, which led to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon in 1974. The first report about the break-in at the Democratic National Committee's headquarters at the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C. broke out on June 17, 1972. Most of newspapers dismissed the story, calling the incident a 'caper.' However, Woodward teamed with Bernstein raised the issue of the link between the burglars and President Nixon's reelection committee with their first report for the Watergate scandal.

Eventually their reporting made it clear that the break-in had been orchestrated by high-ranking officials of the Nixon administration and the Committee to Re-elect the President. On the course of their reporting, the big picture of political 'dirty tricks' of White House was revealed, which included wiretapping, burglary, and disruption of Democratic Party activities. Their series of articles uncovered the deep connection between the political misconducts and 'creep' which led to Congressional hearings and the conviction of several Nixon cornies. Two years and 8 days after the first report broke out, President Nixon appeared on TV screen for his resignation speech. During their reporting, they left the legacy of 'Deep Throat' who anonymously provided them with the highly political source. They would not reveal the identity of the source so far. Some of critics insist that the secret source would be available because Woodward had a career as an intelligence officer for the Navy while he was likely building a connection with CIA officials. Woodward and Bernstein won most of major journalism award, including the Pulitzer Prize. They coauthored two best sellers, 'All the President Men' (1974) and 'The Final Days' (1976). The first book was made into a movie in 1976 and hit the box office record. In 1981 Woodward became the assistant managing editor for investigations at the Washington Post. Bernstein left the Post in 1976. He worked for ABC TV, taught at New York University and was employed briefly at Time magazine.
