President Nixon is respected in a lot of interesting quarters – then and now. The Russian/Soviet leaders of his day considered Richard Nixon to be America’s most intelligent, practical US President as did the 1970s Chinese leadership. Along with American Russian/Soviet expert George F Kennan (Link) Richard Nixon favored a pragmatic American policy towards Soviet Russia – a policy of “containment” which rejected Right Wing American notions of a world wide communist conspiracy all directed from Moscow. Richard Nixon, George Kennan, President Eisenhower all knew that Russia was Russia, China was China – during Communist, Soviet times, before and what would come after. History has proved them to be very correct on that point.
President Nixon, his Vice President Agnew and pretty much all Conservatives of the 1960s and 1970s had negative views of the “liberal media”. After the Woodward and Bernstein Washington Post J*w coup against President Nixon (Nixon won 49 out of 50 states in 1972 election) for very trivial “Watergate hotel bugging cover -ups” , Nixon retreated to his Southern California retreat.
Something (I’ve never heard of before) called the “Richard Nixon Foundation” has just released a very interesting post president Nixon interview commenting on a “Media Complex” as – dangerous as the “Military Industrial Complex” that President Eisenhower warned our nation about in Eisenhower’s “Farewell Address to the Nation Link” Ex President Nixon doesn’t “Name the J*w” in this interview, but Nixon and Rev. Billy Graham once did “Name the Je*” in some private, recording phone conversations. These comments have apparently been scrubbed from the internet – we couldn’t find them.
But, lots and lots of alternative bloggers, pod casters are now just “noticing’ massive layoffs in the mainstream media and the American public’s loss of faith in the mainstream media – buy few are taking that next step to…. Name the Je*.
