  •  I AM old enough to have watched the show (4.00)
        And I did not think at the time that it was intended to bring down the Carter administration.  Remember that Keith Olbermann did a  "countdown" during the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal ("Day 125...").  And remember also that Ted Koppel got a lot of grief from the right wing for having the audacity to fill an entire show with reading aloud the names of those killed in Iraq.
       Having said all that, I am astounded at how compliant and complacent the press is now.  I am also old enough to remember Watergate, and I am convinced that if it happened now, there would have been no scandal at all.

    •  In right wing blogs... (none)
      that I have seen lately, they now say that Nixon was never really one of them.  Really?  What revisionist history.  They have disavowed him and distanced themselves.  And in a sense, he was not one of them in the sense that they are now.
    •  It wasn't "a" show (none)
      It was a nightly report for over a year, and not in any way comparable to Olbermann on Clinton.
