Brian Gilmore '92 published an article in McClatchy recalling the lessons of Watergate. Brian Gilmore writes, "The press is much less powerful today than it was during Watergate. The Internet has decimated newspapers, and much of the media is more concerned with having a shouting match than with digging out the facts. For its part, Congress is mired in partisanship. Forty years after the break-in at the Watergate, our democratic institutions need to be put in better working order or we risk more abuses at the hands of the executive branch." Read the full article in McClatchy, "40 years after Watergate, lessons are ignored"
