The Nixon Library and the 'Last Battle of Watergate'

Hosted by

For 30 years, the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, California was a haven for supporters of a former President who resigned in disgrace. Then, the National Archives appointed a new director who later called Nixon "the worst President in modern history." When Tim Naftali took over in 2006, he instituted a new display on the Watergate scandal. Instead of blaming the Democrats, it looked to Nixon loyalists like an "unapologetic attack" on Nixon himself. Now Naftali's resigned and the story is unraveled in an article by Andrew Gumbel that appears in the magazine Miller-McCune.
