3 The Fall of US President Richard Nixon | Nixon In The Den | Timeline


Back to menu

3 feb. 2017

An intimate profile of Richard
 
Nixon Nixon In The Den develops a fresh account of Nixon and his ruthless ambition to escape a loveless, impoverished background. Historian David Reynolds argues that Nixon was genuinely successful as an international statesman, with historic visits to Communist China and the Soviet Union in 1972 helping thaw the Cold War. Yet, behind the scenes, Nixon’s diplomacy was a story of intrigue and rivalry. The very methods that won Nixon acclaim on the international stage also doomed his presidency in the infamous Watergate scandal. With the help of Nixon’s scribbled memos, audio recordings and rarely seen home movie footage and photos, this film throws new light on Nixon’s obsessive secrecy, relentless deception and paranoid mistrust of key aides, especially his foreign policy adviser Henry Kissinger.

4 What I learned investigating Nixon, and why it matters now | Bob Woodward | TEDxMidAtlantic

Back to menu

20 jan. 2017

Legendary investigative journalist and author Bob Woodward shares the inside story of President Richard Nixon’s downfall, and what was learned from the Nixon White House tapes. He warns that we are entering a new era of secrecy that harkens back to Nixon’s days. We think we are resilient, but if we are infected with hate and lack of knowledge, we could lose our democracy, Woodward argues.
 
Bob Woodward is regarded as one of America’s preeminent investigative reporters and non-fiction authors. He has worked for The Washington Post since 1971 as a reporter, and is currently an associate editor of the Post. While a young reporter for The Washington Post in 1972, Woodward was teamed up with Carl Bernstein; the two did much, but not all, of the original news reporting on the Watergate scandal that led to numerous government investigations and the eventual resignation of President Richard Nixon.

Maryanne Melenka
I’m Canadian, but have to say I liked Nixon desire his screwups. I liked Kennedy too, but Nixon was right that election was stolen, but he let it go. He was a smart man, but shy insecure and paranoid. I did feel sorry for him. His resignation speech made me cry. Nixon was a man who did things out of panic and desperation. I loved his smile, that tricky dicky look, in politics everyone sneaky. But I think he was deep down a deep caring man, he cried when he let two men go, so it wasn’t malicious. He just got I. A deep hole. Smart men can still do stupid things. Clinton, Bush, and Trump. He became an elder statesman, Americans forgave him, still paid respects at funeral . He was just a flawed human being who made mistakes. As Frank Sinatra said,he liked Nixon too. There will be worse president s then Nixon as we’ve seen with Trump. Nixon would have turned over in grave.

10 The Last of the President’s Men with Bob Woodward Alex Butterfield and Michael Bernstein —

(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) Investigative journalist Bob Woodward and former White House aide Alex Butterfield join Michael Bernstein for a conversation about Butterfield’s decision to reveal the existence of tape recordings that eventually led to Richard Nixon’s resignation from the presidency.

Mr. Woodward was spot-on when discussing the 2016 election and knowing who these people are, (presidential candidates). I think the press did a fabulous job exposing Trump, while Trump exposed (to put it mildly) Clinton, but even that was still not enough to get non-registered voters to register and vote, and registered voters to vote. So, in a perfect world, the press adequately exposes candidates, while citizens perform their duty and vote. Whereas in reality, non-voters determined the 2016 election results and is why we are where we are now!

Could’ve taken another 3-hours of that. 👍👍

When I was 7, in the summer of 1973, my mother asked my grandmother, “Is there Watergate today?” These 2 Democrats were riveted to their TV sets. I didn’t understand – I heard “water” and I thought Mom was asking if it was going to rain! I don’t remember Butterfield, but I do remember John Dean testifying. Mom said something about a break-in to headquarters. Huh? What is headquarters? That was a word I remember from Saturday morning cartoons! One day, I was over at a friend’s house, and we were playing in the basement – his mother turned on Watergate, and so we constructed a Watergate building out of some kind of building blocks (not Legos, but like it) – and in our 7 year old minds, we were imagining a building where you could get soft drinks – here is Coke over here, and 7-Up over there. I wish someone could have explained it to me, but at the time, no one really knew what was happening. Fast forward to the end of my second grade year – our town in Ohio was struck by an F-5 tornado on April 3, 1974. Days later, I was out riding my bicycle, and I heard a helicopter overhead – it came down awfully low, and scared me. My grandfather said to me that was probably the President – he was visiting my elementary school (one of the few buildings still standing). He came to our town to evaluate the need for federal funds, which he granted. The president in my school! Wow! (That school has since been torn down.) President Nixon is the first president I was aware of. His public demeanor was fitting of the office, and to me, he set the standard by which a President should act. So imagine later that summer that my grandmother (I am now 8) tells me that Nixon is in trouble so we want to watch the national news. I see a woman talking into many microphones saying, “…and he WILL be impeached.” I was disappointed – he’s the president! He’s our leader! He is so formal, so strong, so presidential. How can he be doing such bad things? He came to my town, after all! I admired him. How could someone in such an office do those things? In my life, we have had both good and bad presidents. I probably admire Barack Obama the most – I also liked Clinton and Reagan. What did we learn here? Ask questions. Investigate. A free press is tantamount to a free society. If I could talk to my 7 or 8 year old self, I would say, no one person is all-powerful – everyone, including the President, is subject to the laws of the land. I keep my congressman and senators on speed dial. I have been calling them a lot lately – and we all should – both if we like something and if we don’t.
fred houpt
fascinating. I look forward to one day reading this important book.
Lisa Mills
I respect Bob Woodward yet he monopolized too much of the conversation Since Alex Butterfield hadn’t spoken about President Nixon or Watergate since it happened, I would like to have heard more from him.
Bart Alder
11:22 the “talking about what we’re talking about” prefatory remarks finally stop and the actual talking finally begins.
NunyaDammeBiznis
John Dean testified before Alex Butterfield. He stated that he thought the conversations were recorded. When Mr. Butterfield testified, they asked him if there were recording devices. Wonder where they got that from? I don’t.
Mike Jensen
Brian “Gimbal-neck” Schottlaender was voted “Most Desperately In Need Of A Teleprompter” at this year’s Windy Words Toastmasters banquet in Sleepy Hollow, NY.
Jonathan R. Zeko
Bob Woodward‘s continuous sanctimonious retrograde criticism of Nixon can get old. Much of what he says is true, but 100 years from now Nixon will be important, and no one will know who he or Bernstein was. I always get a kick out of the fact that liberals can be so sympathetic to some people but so harsh on others. In Woodward‘s case, I think a lot of it is just about his constant and unremitting self-promotion. It’s almost as though he needs to keep telling the same story over and over again to make himself relevant.
Dennis Cassley
ANOTHER EXAMPLE of an emcee, moderator, whatever, thinking IT’S ABOUT HIM!! It’s like “open mic” at a wedding. SHUT UP and get to the subject of the meeting/presentation.
David Delaney
Throughout this and other presentations, I find Woodward boring distraction, forever attempting to establish a relevance that does not exist. Let Butterfield talk and shut up Booooob !
Erik Smith
Woodward seems ignorant about politics. Politicians don’t let the public know who they “really are.”
Dennis Cassley
A NEARLY 12-MINUTE “INTRODUCTION”? NOBODY came to hear YOU, dude…!!
Allan Young
Woodward likes to constantly interrupt and get his views across. I would much rather hear more from Mr. Butterfield about what happened from his point of view. We have already heard what Mr. Woodward has to say, from many sources.
The End
The guy with glasses, too annoying of a voice
TBCA Blessings
What hypocrite he makes his career over the back of Nixon. It makes me sick to watch guy over and over again. Nixon-Kissinger opened the door to China ended the Vietnam war and here this guy filled his pocket over Nixon mistake. What a patriot??? This guy makes me sick.

Silbert, as well as Max Holland, author of the book “Leak: Why Mark Felt Became Deep Throat.” The three, along with Reilly Center Director Bob Mann, discussed how Watergate changed and influenced Washington, D.C., politics at the time, and its legacy for the American people.

16 Bob Woodward reveals Nixon secrets from White House aide

Back to menu

13 okt. 2015

It’s been 41 years since Richard Nixon became the first U.S. president to resign, and we’re still learning new secrets about his alleged deception and crimes beyond Watergate. They’re being revealed by Nixon aide Alexander Butterfield, who shared details with legendary Watergate reporter Bob Woodward. Woodward joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss his new book, “The Last of the President’s Men,” published by Simon and Schuster, a division of CBS.
 
Deborah Hoffman
From the cynical comments below, none of us could ever believe that anyone anywhere is honest, and everything is a lie somehow. There is truth out there. And honest people. Bob Woodard is one of them.
Beth Grant-DeRoos
Am literally crying thinking of the many lives lost all because Nixon wanted to be re-elected.  The more things change the more they stay the same.  Is Obama any different? Was GWBush any different?
Jean
Why do intelligent people, knowing full well what is motivating the President, continue to serve at his bidding? Where are their morals? their backbones?
Linda T
i tell people all of the time, educate yourself before you vote. at least check their voting records
Blackrain4xmas
Presidents always do military decisions based on elections. Roosevelt invaded Africa for electoral purposes. Lincoln gave his emancipation proclamation for electoral purposes. Obama covered up Benghazi for electoral purposes. Clinton bombed Iraq in 1994, 1996, and 1998 for electoral purposes. Bush didn’t start his 6months of buildup to invade Iraq until 911 had been a year earlier, and just on the eve of midterm elections (91202 address to the UN). Even George Washington wrote that in a democracy, the military has to take in mind the electoral will of the people.
Greg Miller
Bots and trolls are alive and well. Way too much tea drinking in the comments. Truth wins.
clocksurfer
…and how many yellow “bombies” dropped over Laos?
Vicky Abramowitz
I remember Nixon’s resignation in August 1974 like it was yesterday. I was 19 years old and in training as a nurse’s aide in a nursing home. I remember so many of the staff gathering in the patients’ TV room to see Nixon leaving the White House. People were stunned!!! Nixon was the only US President to ever resign from office and still is. Of course, none of us knows what the future holds. But we do know that history can, and often does, repeat itself.

17 John Dean “The Nixon Defense”

Back to menu

12 aug. 2014

What did the president know, and when did he know it? That was the iconic question of the Watergate scandal and Dean, who served as Nixon’s legal counsel, argues that it remains to be answered. Using his own transcripts of conversations with Nixon and his circle as well as drawing on archived documents, Dean resolves the outstanding mysteries surrounding the break-in and cover-up. (Penguin Press)
 
Joseph Stokes
Mr. Dean! I am a Vietnam veteran and want to tell you I have the greatest respect for what you did and continue to do! Best of luck and thanks!
Margie Large-O Mussolini
I’ve always admired John, and he became my hero when he stood up like a man and did the right thing by coming clean with everything he knew. Nobody on this earth can criticize him for his deeds, we’re all human and fallible, it’s how and what we do to make up for those mistakes that defines who we are. John, unlike some of the obvious losers of the era, could have been relegated to the manure heap of history, but his humanism, intellect and drive would not accept nor allow that. History is going to make note of his contributions, both during the Watergate period and since, for his untiring efforts to chronicle and lend insider perspective to the events which to most of us seem almost beyond comprehension. It was a historic period in our history that those of who experienced it were lucky to be alive, sad as it was. Thank you, Mr. Dean, for everything you’ve done.
Mark
For all the time John Dean spent transcribing, we owe him a very Big Thank You. For example, at 16:13, he says that he sometimes spent 8 hrs on 1 minute of conversation (just to make sure he got it right). That’s dedicaton! Hopefully, it wasn’t all arduous work, and that maybe he had some fun with it too.
Albert Arthur Parsnips
Remarkably judicious and restrained summations,..packed with intriguing detail, to boot,..from a man whose entire life could easily have been completely buggered up by his boss. Well done, John !
shikat2371
As noted by Dean, Nixon just wasn’t good at small talk. And Dean wasn’t the only one who expressed the same sentiments about Nixon. Alex Butterfield, Haldeman’s aide, also described Nixon as the oddest man he had ever met. Nixon was great with 100 million people. He was lousy with just 10 people. Even with close friends, there was distance. Bebe Rebozo, one of Nixon’s’ “closest” friends, would often call him “Mr. President” instead of “Dick” or “Richard”.
Rosemary Holdredge
I greatly admire John Dean. His testimony before the Senate investigating committee was riveting, and he was the only witness who came across as candid and truthful. His book, “The Nixon Defense” is probably the most complete description of Watergate available. Some of the tape transcripts have already been published, but they are difficult to read and follow. Dean puts all the conversations into context, which finally makes the conversations understandable.
Thomas Kossatz
A young man works for the WH, and of course he is proud about it. When the projects he has to work on get more and more weird, he says: Stop! He tells his boss (Nixon), to save his ptecidency he has to fire himself (!) and the 2 “german shepards” Ehrlicman and Haldeman. But his boss continues, in fact, he tries to make him the scapegoat. It needs balls to go the Dean way, and I have the fullest respect. The reason he had to spend 3 months in jail is quickly told. The Justice Department could have immunized him as an important witness. But it worked for the Nixon administration and was not interested in the truth. If a patriot is a person who lives the values of the constitution, Dean is one.
jorgenmoll
Great video….thanks

Harry Balasgna
Would anyone watching this trust John Dean as your attorney or business partner ?
strawnobi
This guy deserves no respect. Yes, he told the truth. But to save his own butt. He admits he helped in the cover up but somehow always tries to claim righteousness because he fessed up. Bull, he fessed up because he was being granted an immunity deal at the time. Although if memory serves he did end up serving a little jail time. But in the end he got a slap on the wrist.

30 The big problem with comparing Trump to Nixon


Back to menu

12 mei 2018


 
Donald Trump may look a lot like Richard Nixon right now. But there is one glaring difference between these two men’s presidencies: Fox News.

Trump and Nixon are similar in a lot of ways: they both faced major FBI investigations, were accused of obstructing justice, lashed out at the media, and oozed raw sexual charisma. Some pundits look at those similarities and assert that, like Nixon, Trump will also face impeachment.

But Nixon never had Fox News. As trust in mainstream media has collapsed over the past 40 years, the amount of conservative media has exploded. And sources like Fox News have spent months casting doubt on the FBI and the Mueller special investigation.

Without a uniting narrative in the media, it’s unlikely Trump will face impeachment or that Republicans in Congress will be the ones to hold the president accountable for his actions, regardless of what Mueller ultimately finds.

On Strikethrough, Vox producer Carlos Maza explores the challenges facing the news media in the age of Trump.

31 From Trump to Nixon: “Watergate” Film Explains “How We Learned to Stop an Out of Control President”

Back to menu

7 okt. 2019

President Donald Trump called openly Thursday for the leaders of Ukraine and China to investigate Trump’s campaign rival Joe Biden and Biden’s son Hunter for corruption. Trump’s explicit remarks during a press conference came as leaders of the Democratic-led House pushed ahead rapidly with their impeachment investigation. President Trump is just the fourth U.S. president to face a formal impeachment inquiry, joining Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton. We spend the hour looking at back at the Watergate scandal, which led to Nixon’s resignation in 1974 and is the focus of a documentary titled “Watergate — Or: How We Learned to Stop an Out of Control President.” Drawing on 3,400 hours of audiotapes, archival footage and declassified documents, the film chronicles the dramatic events surrounding the break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office complex in 1972, which precipitated Nixon’s eventual resignation two years later under threat of impeachment. We play clips from the film and speak with its director, Charles Ferguson, who won an Academy Award for his documentary “Inside Job.”

33 “Conspiratorial Mindset”: From Nixon to Trump, Lessons for Jan. 6 Hearing 50 Years After Watergate

Back to menu

15 jun. 2022

The 50th anniversary of the Watergate burglary in 1972 this Friday comes as public hearings are underway by the House committee investigating the January 6 Capitol insurrection. We speak with Garrett Graff, author of “Watergate: A New History,” about critical lessons and historical parallels between the defining controversies of the Nixon and Trump presidencies. Rather than isolated crimes, Watergate and January 6 should be seen as culminating events of U.S. presidencies that share a “dark, criminal, conspiratorial mindset that drives and links together so many of their scandals,” says Graff.

De Amerikaanse journalist Ben Bradlee is overleden. Hij was hoofdredacteur van The Washington Post toen die krant het Watergate-schandaal aan het licht bracht. Dat politieke schandaal leidde uiteindelijk tot het aftreden van president Nixon in 1974. Ben Bradlee was 93 jaar. Twee journalisten van the Washington Post, Bob Woordward en Carl Bernstein onthullen dat het Witte Huis in 1972 opdracht gaf om in te breken in het hoofdkantoor van de Democratische Partij. Doel was om de verkiezingscampagne van de Democraten te saboteren.

Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post Associate Editor Bob Woodward joins Andrea Mitchell to discuss what’s at stake in the January 6 investigation ahead of the select committee’s public hearings. “I’m convinced having spent part of my life on Donald Trump that he and others conspired in a criminal way to overturn the election and prevent Biden from taking power legitimately,” says Woodward. “Section 371 of the Criminal Code makes it very clear: if you work to subvert a legitimate function of government, you are committing a crime, and we have overt acts by Donald Trump going on to this day.”
