Richard Nixon 101

Yesterday was Richard Nixon's birthday - he would have been 100 years old.
When Cinema Dave was in Kindergarden, Nixon was elected President. On the Eve of Middle School, Cimema Dave witnessed the 37th president's fall from office;



When Nixon passed away in the spring of 1994, most news organization paid a respectful tribute to the former President. The exception was CBS News with Dan Rather. The Friday night emergency broadcast opened with the breaking news and the first twenty minutes focused on Watergate.

Given how his career ended, Dan Rather should have heeded the words of Richard M. Nixon.
