Nixon-Frost Interview

Filed under: film, history — Tags: , — codesmithy @ 9:27 am

In 1977, David Frost interviewed former President Richard Nixon.  The interview is the basis of an upcoming Ron Howard film titled “Frost/Nixon.”  Looking back on the actual interview (thank goodness for youtube), the one thing that becomes clear is what really screwed Nixon were the tapes.  People could independently verify exactly what was said and when.  The crimes of Nixon are hardly of any significance by today’s standards.  This speaks more of the establishment attitudes of today more than those of the Nixon era.
