If you liked... ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN
NIXON BY NIXON STREAMING NOW, FOX SHOWCASE
IN 1974, Richard Nixon became the first US President to resign from office. This doco explores the private White House recordings during his presidency. When Nixon by Nixon first aired, the New York Times reviewed it as a “strange little documentary” of a president who is … “paranoid, vicious, racist, sexist … with a casual disregard for anything besides his own standing.” Sound familiar? In 2018, I’m not sure the NYT would find it so strange; particularly when Nixon, in conversation with Henry Kissinger, repeats three times “the press is the enemy.” Scary but fascinating.
