It’s election year in the US. Politics as we know it is out the window, a demagogue is a serious contender for Commander-in-Chief, and reasonable debate seems like a fantasy. What better time to look back at one of America’s other most politically revolutionary moments: Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal, and the British talk show host who aimed to withdraw the truth.
