The War on Nixon

by Conrad Black

From my most recent NRO article, on the case of Woodward and Bernstein versus Nixon: “The Watergate affair was sleazy and discreditable, but Nixon was an unusually talented and successful president. The war on history has been conducted by his enemies. . . . Bradlee-Woodstein bloodlessly assassinated the president, routinized the criminalization of policy and partisan differences, grievously wounded the institution of the presidency, and enjoyed and profited from doing so.”

Whether you agree or disagree, your comments are, as always, most welcome.
