Guest: Thomas Peele, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter with the Bay Area News Group, Lecturer of Journalism at University of California Berkeley Veteran journalist Bob Woodward’s new book about dysfunction in the Trump White House has quickly become one of the year’s top-sellers and drawn sharp criticism from its subject. The President often complains about how the media covers him. “Enemy of the People” he calls them. But in a lot of cases reporters are the people’s only advocate uncovering corruption in government, holding powerful people to account. That’s the kind of investigative reporting Thomas Peele does – the kind of reporting that won him a Pulitzer Prize.
