Redford Revisits ‘All The President’s Men’

It’s been 37 years since the Watergate scandal was captured in the movie “All the President’s Men.” The anniversary was marked Thursday at the Newseum with a screening of “All The President’s Men: Revisited,” a documentary about the movie. The White House Correspondents’ Association and Discovery hosted the event.

Prior to the screening, actor Robert Redford, documentary producers Andrew Lack and Laura Michalchyshyn and famed Watergate journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein walked a red carpet.

Woodward was at the center of a minor media scandal earlier this year when he suggested that he had been threatened by a White House official. Once a thorn in the side of Republicans, Woodward’s claim won him fans on the right and several appearances on FNC’s “Hannity.”

Asked what he makes of Woodward’s tendency to stir trouble on both the left and the right, Redford told FBDC, “it means he’s doing a good job.”

“We don’t live in a world where everybody’s one way or the other,” he added. “There’s a lot of gray there. I think if somebody’s doing their job, they’re going to provoke people who don’t want to see the job well done.”

In remarks before the film, WHCA President and FNC Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry said this year’s WHCA dinner is trying to focus on the scholarship that WHCA offers aspiring journalists rather than the celebrities who will be attending. He said Redford agreed to attend the screening in that same spirit.

Fun fact: The documentary contains a scene wherein TV commentator Ben Stein starts crying at the memory of President Richard Nixon‘s final speech as president.

Following the film was a panel discussion with Redford, Bernstein, Woodward, Henry and Newsweek‘s Eleanor Clift.

When asked about the state of journalism today Redford said… Read more

Whose Shoes: Revealed

We received a variety of guesses today that ranged from MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann to WaPo’s Carl Bernstein.

Two readers got it right when they wrote in Vanity Fair’s Christopher Hitchens, the owner of these loafers. We shot this picture on the sly at The Weekly Standard’s/Daily Caller’s Matt Labash’s book party the other night held at Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker and Susie Carlson’s lavish home.

The readers who guessed right: Ken Berard (@N_E_I) of Nuclear Energy Institute and Ben Bergman, asst. producer, NPR’s Morning Edition.

As always, thanks to all for playing. Should any of you want to send us a photograph of a journo’s shoes, send to fishbowldcATmediabistroDOTcom.

This 11-Year-Old Probably Has Gotten More Access Than You

Unless you’re the AP’s Jennifer Loven, 11-year-old Damon Weaver has probably gotten more questions in to President Obama than you have.

Weaver interviewed the President late last week at the White House, focusing, fittingly, on education. The young reporter from Florida even did a press avail on the South Lawn afterwards, appearing on the morning shows and cablers.

Weaver has quite the resume tape. He’s already interviewed politicos like Vice President (then presidential candidate) Joe Biden, Colin Powell and Caroline Kennedy, Hollywood stars like Samuel Jackson, Oprah Winfrey, Chris Tucker and has reversed the mic on some of our own, including David Gregory, Larry King, Megyn Kelly, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.

Looking for a fall intern? Little Weaver’s probably over-qualified.

DC’ers Honor Cronkite at Today’s Funeral

The funeral service for Walter Cronkite was held in NY today at St. Bartholomew Church. CBSNews.com had a live feed of the service.

Bob Schieffer, Bill Plante, Carl Bernstein, Brit Hume and Howard Kurtz (with a notebook and updating his Facebook status) were among some of the journos who traveled up from DC for the funeral.

TVNewser has a more extensive write-up of the service here.

In Memoriam: Mary Lou Forbes

Mary Lou Forbes, a Pulitzer-winning, groundbreaking journalist, has died after a brief battle with cancer. Mary Lou is credited with paving the way for many women to rise in the previously male-dominated journalism profession and she was a mentor to such greats as Carl Bernstein and Cal Thomas.

For the last 25 years, she has served as the Commentary Editor for The Washington Times. Her obit here.
