He is also the author of three books: "The Greatest Generation," "Boom! Voices of the Sixties" and "The Time of our Lives."

Clooney is the Newseum and American University School of Communication distinguished journalist-in-residence. His career in news spans more than 50 years. Clooney anchored newscasts in Los Angeles, Cincinnati and Buffalo. Nick and his son, George, have traveled to the Sudan and Chad to report on the ongoing genocide in the region of Darfur.

Yep, I bet this will be a fascinating conversation.

Does anyone know whether they record these sort of events and make them available for viewing later?

Alot of Tom Brokaw's talks are recorded, but I don't know if they're available for the public. I would assume something like this might be.

You can check on either the Newseum site of on the American University site to see if either will have video available.

Nick talked GC and the WHCD with Tom Brokaw:

George Clooney thanks Tom Brokaw for WHCD criticism, Bob Schieffer doesn't
May 2, 2013 | 6:23 pm

Bob Schieffer and George Clooney both had some feedback for Tom Brokaw and his criticism of the White House Correspondents' Dinner. It turns out Clooney was on team Brokaw, according to the actor's father, veteran journalist Nick Clooney. "My son George asked me to thank you," Nick Clooney told Brokaw, when the duo appeared together Wednesday night at the Newseum. "I said that I think George is a serious student of American politics and there are others, as well," Brokaw said of the actor before transitioning to another story about the annual star-studded dinner. (It was Lindsay Lohan's appearance last year, that really ruined it for Brokaw). "Claire Danes was a guest of my friend Bob Schieffer," Brokaw noted. "After I was critical, Schieffer sent me a picture of him at the dinner with Claire Danes and said, 'Brokaw, I'm not giving this up,' " the NBC newsman said to big laughs.

About 10 seconds worth about in the middle of it. Just a very short mention. I just skipped through it for you and it starts at about the 34:30 mark.
