Our job is to put the best obtainable version of the truth out there, period, he added. Especially now. Read Bernstein and Woodward's full speeches below: CARL BERNSTEIN: Shortly after Richard Nixon resigned the presidency, Bob and I were asked a long question about reporting. We answered with a short phrase weve used many times since to describe our reporting on Watergate and its purpose and methodology: we called it the best obtainable version of the truth. The best obtainable version of the truth. Its a simple concept, yet something very difficult to get right because of the enormous amount of effort, thinking, persistence, pushback, logical baggage and, for sure, luck that is required, not to mention some unnatural humility. Underlying everything reporters do in pursuit of the best obtainable version of the truth, whatever our beat or assignment, is the question what is news? What is it that we believe is important, relevant, hidden, perhaps, or even in plain sight and ignored by conventional journalistic wisdom or governmental wisdom? Id say this question of what is news becomes even more relevant and essential if we are covering the president of the United States.

Joe Biden has been saying yes to nearly all the political invitations coming his way, with new ones arriving almost daily. Privately, the former vice president and his staff have started talking about how to begin planning a strategy with a roughly 18-month timeline so that if he decides on another presidential run, he’ll be best positioned to get it off the ground. Biden will be 77 by the time of the next Iowa caucuses, but Biden 2020 just might happen. He will be in Manchester Sunday night for a speech at the New Hampshire Democratic Party dinner. After that there’s a fundraiser he’ll appear at for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a speech to the Florida Democratic Party, an address to investment leadersSALT Conference in Las Vegas in May, and commencement speeches at Harvard, Colby and Morgan State. It’s the kind of schedule that would fit with a candidate in the early stages of a White House run, but advisors say at this point it’s guided only by keeping his commitment to staying involved and helping rebuild the Democratic Party.

education, education, Tony Blair's mantra. In terms of how much that will play in the general election, your calculation? Jeremy Corbyn has tried to avoid Brexit in many ways. He doesn't ask much about it and in his speeches so far in this campaign he has tended to steer.

children are letting them go and they are landing on the speeches and local residents are angry because while they are biodegradable, they take ages to break down and animals are eating and swallowing them. It's quite a beautiful image, in a way

with Theresa May in all of her speeches and it is interesting listen to them. A key message she has been putting across is that Jeremy Corbyn is a weak leader. Today, he came out on the attack, deciding to take that head-on. For many years, I could not see much beyond how so many political leaders.

they paid him enough, plus demanding vast sums of money for speeches has damaged him and the brand. During Brexit, during the whole campaign, if he had been on our side, the old Tony Blair, we would have won. The old one, not the new one

Bernie Sanders is not too happy that former President Barack Obama has accepted $400,000 to speak at a conference sponsored by a Wall Street investment bank. I just think it does not look good, Sanders told CNN's Suzanne Malveaux, joining several people who have criticized Obama for taking the money. I just think it is distasteful not a good idea that he did that. Sanders frequently railed against Hillary Clinton for accepting money for giving speeches to Wall Street banks while he campaigned for the Democratic presidential nomination last year. His comments about Obama echoed Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who said on Thursday that she was troubled by the former president's decision . Sanders also aired his disapproval of Obama's decision in an interview with CBS's This Morning . I think at a time when people are so frustrated with the power of Wall Street and the big-money interests, I think it is unfortunate that President Obama is doing this, he said.
