Watergate redux

The new age of White House investigative reporting

Not since the Nixon era have the media's investigative lasers been trained quite so uniformly at a president as they are now. 

In this target-rich environment, major national media players, led by The New York Times, The Washington Post, and ProPublica, have produced a stream of probing investigative projects as well as quick-turn daily revelations about the controversies circling the Trump White House.

It feels, in many ways, like a new golden age for investigative reporting about the presidency. But is it really?

Watch as Stephen Engelberg (ProPublica), Matthew Rosenberg (The New York Times), Michael S. Schmidt (The New York Times), and Vera Bergengruen (McClatchy News Service/Buzzfeed), join moderator Howard Witt, a longtime journalist and the Miller Center's managing editor, in an exploration of the media and the Trump White House.
