I just watched the amazing HBO documentary “Nixon by Nixon: In His Own Words.”
From 1971 to 1973, Richard Nixon secretly recorded his private conversations in the White House. This film chronicles the content of those tapes, which include Nixon’s conversations on the war in Vietnam, the Pentagon Papers leak, his Supreme Court appointments, and more–while also exposing shocking statements he made about women, people of color, Jews, and the media.
Forty plus years later it’s still difficult to listen to Nixon himself speak. There is no guilt or remorse. No second thoughts.
Highly recommended, especially if you were around.
