In such a way, the book reveals the full extent to which the political system of the US was corrupted and the authors stress the importance of independent media because it is due to their fair and independent work, they have managed to conduct their investigation. On the other hand, it is obvious that mass media have proved to be independent too since the journalists have managed to make the results of their investigation available to the public. Hence, the authors of the book reach their main goal and show the audience how important mass media are for the US society and politics, in particular.
The revelations made by the journalists, which the authors depict in the book, are important but more important is the role of the mass media and journalists, which the authors reveal in their book. In fact, the book shows that independent mass media and journalists are guardians of democracy. They protect the US society from being deceived by politicians and they prevent the use of unfair methods of political struggle.
Thus, taking into account all above mentioned, it is important to place emphasis on the fact that “All The President’s Men” by Bernstein and Woodward is the non-fiction book that reveals the real work of journalists and their contribution to the US democracy revealing the role of media in protection of public interests.
