    B. Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein

    Between 1972 and 1976, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein emerged as two of the most famous journalists in America and became forever identified as the reporters who broke the biggest story in American politics. Beginning with the investigation of a "third-rate burglary" of the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate complex, Woodward and Bernstein uncovered a system of political "dirty tricks" and crimes that eventually led to indictments of forty White House and administration officials, and ultimately to the resignation of President Richard Nixon.

    Correct response is B - Woodward and Bernstein won virtually every available award for their work. Together they wrote the bestseller, All the President's Men which was published in 1974 which became a popular film. Their articles first appeared in the Washington Post.

    For backup to this response look for a listing of those receiving Pulitzer Prizes - these gentlemen won the Pullitzer for the Washington Post - public service in 1973.
