Lowell Bergman - Reva and David Logan Distinguished Chair in Investigative Reporting at the Graduate School of Journalism

An Enemy of the People: Reflections on Fifty Years of Journalism and the Prospect of a "Second Civil War”

A “living legend of investigative journalism” and “one of the greatest American investigative reporters of all time,” Lowell Bergman worked as a New York Times correspondent and on national television news with ABC, CBS’s 60 Minutes, and PBS’s documentary series Frontline, of which he was also a senior producer and consultant. His 60 Minutes investigation of the tobacco industry was dramatized in 1999 in the Academy Award-nominated feature film The Insider; and in 2004, The New York Times received journalism’s highest honor, the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, for Bergman’s work with David Barstow and two Berkeley graduate students on A Dangerous Business, a television series exposé of thousands of worker safety and environmental violations in the iron pipe and related industries. For these and other such investigations, Bergman has over the years received numerous Emmy, duPont, and Peabody awards. Having recently retired from such work, as well as his teaching career at Berkeley, Bergman is now reflecting on the current state of the country—on the ways that the defunding of public education and deregulation of all electronic media provided a pathway for the ascent of a reality-tv star to the White House, and where this could take us next.
