Looks back at Watergate, the original game changer of America politics. How has Watergate changed the Presidency? What effect has the scandal had on our political leaders? And has hope and optimism forever been replaced in our national dialogue by doubt and cynicism? 2013 marks 40 years since 1973 - Watergate's most pivotal year. Reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein doggedly investigated the scandal exposing the long, twisted trail of cover-ups and lies. Written by
This is a nice one hour show. Well pieced to make a story. Well cut. But why? Why the television stars? Just to boost ratings? People who were children at the time are talking about what happened. Weird.
Than if done so later afterward, why not talk about the new data brought into the public view? A cute animation about twitter and the silly optimistic view of some talking head how things won't happen like that.
What I have enjoyed was an unplanned side effect. I liked the vanity fair. Lawyers paid by the state who are coming up decades after to talk about their courage and heroism with a smiling face. Huh? I beg your pardon? This is what they were paid to do. They should have done all this before Woodward and Bernstein. But they needed months to be reassured that the public opinion is against Nixon and only than they have acted. Than to see the corrupt politicians talk about their difficult decision and how they have done the right thing. Right. When they were taped, now that was a matter of National Importance. The war was something for the poor to fight and die in order to raise new generations of loyal middle class.
