Holding Power Accountable:
the Government, the News Media, and Democracy 

On October 30, 2007, Watergate's John W. Dean delivered the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism's inaugural lecture.

As a central figure in one of investigative journalism's great successes, the Watergate exposé, Dean brought a unique historical perspective on government secrecy and the state of investigative journalism, then and now. He spoke to a standing-room-only-crowd at the Brandeis University Faculty Club.
