It is error only, and not truth, that shrinks from inquiry.

There are instances in which a want of civility is want of principle.

This is my creed of politics. If I have any where expressed myself overwarmly, ’tis from a fixed, immovable hatred I have, and ever had, to cruel men and cruel measures. Thomas Paine 1737 – 1809

Richard Nixon 1913 – 1994, Resignation 1974, The Nixon Interviews, 1977

Aftermath
A Gallup poll conducted after the interviews aired showed that 69 percent of the public thought that Nixon was still trying to cover up, 72 percent still thought he was guilty of obstruction of justice, and 75 percent thought he deserved no further role in public life. Frost was expected to make $1 million from the interviews.
