There was a time, not that long ago, when newspapers were an essential source of news. The advent of the Internet and 24- hour television news such as CNN and BBC World has changed all that. Thirty years ago Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein won the Pulitzer Prize for Watergate, the scandal which eventually brought down President Richard Nixon. The two young Washington Post reporters launched an entire generation into print journalism, not only in America but around the world.
Could the same be done today? Probably not.
