Bob Woodward, Pulitzer prize-winning journalist

Bob Woodward has interviewed 7 presidents, was partially responsible for Richard Nixon quitting the White House, and received a Pulitzer Prize for his investigations into the Watergate affair.

In an interview with FRANCE 24, Woodward tackles Barack Obama's decision-making process in Afghanistan, and the conflicts that the 44th US president now faces – from Libya to his 2012 re-election bid. Critical of recent trends in transparency and journalism à la Wikileaks, Bob Woodward presents his own take on political journalism.
