Carl Bernstein Working on Book about Congress

cb_jacketphoto.jpgOne of the most famous investigative reporters in the world had troubles shopping his most recent book. Despite having co-written All the President’s Men and breaking the Watergate scandal, Carl Bernstein initially couldn’t find takers for his next book about Congress.

In a wowOwow column by the great gossip journalist Liz Smith, journalist Bernstein (pictured) gave a glimpse into his next book–an investigation into the legislative branch of the federal government.

Here’s more from wowOwow.com: “Carl said he was working now on a book about the vagaries, the achievements and the, yes, crimes of the Congress of the United States. He says, ‘It’s quite a story and here’s the funniest thing about it. When I first shopped the idea around to editors and publishers, I couldn’t get anybody even to nibble. But now that the Senate and the House of Representatives have made such a spectacle of not governing in the United States, this book idea is hot, hot, hot!’”
