That's not presidential press secretary Ronald Ziegler speaking, but Carl Bernstein, one of two Washington Post reporters who broke the Watergate story. He and partner Bob Woodward were in Los Angeles to promote their new book on the scandal, "All the President's Men," and to issue a warning to the press. "We feel this is not time for the press to declare open season on Richard Nixon or his aides," said Bernstein. "This is not the time for a witch hunt," he added. "There is a tendency in-the media toward self-congratulating about Watergate and the role of the press in exposing It. If there was ever a time to be careful, it is now when the stakes are the highest." Bernstein and Woodward, reporters for the Washington Post, are wary of becoming news figures themselves. Their book is on most best-seller lists and has been sold to movie producers. But the reporters intend to stay on their story. "We still don't know all there is to know about Watergate," Bernstein said. "I understand why people are a little tired of hearing about It, but what happened in this case Is something we have to know. And we can't let It go until we do know... "We have a basic understanding of Watergate and all lt- represents," he said. "But we still don't know everything. It's still not definitely clear why there was a break-in at the Watergate. There is a lot more to be learned If that central fact could be established." Woodward disagreed. "I don't think there, ever was a central strategy. This was just domestic espionage." Prior to Watergate, Bernstein and Woodward had little experience covering national' politics. But both had been police reporters, a position in which street savvy —or knowing who to believe —is an Important asset. "John Mitchell once said, 'Watch what we do, not what we, say,'" Bernstein said. "We tried to watch what was done. Unfortunately, the Washington press is very accustomed to doing the opposite." ri Save now fi during our r fHITiL 1974 /6tAAU>! WHILE THEY LASTI ALL STEREOS AND TV'S MUST GO AT GREAT SAVINGS TO YOU!
