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.
