I quibble with you,
Mr. Sir David Frost. In your Feb. 12 interview in the New York Times Magazine, they asked you, "What would Nixon think of you taking a job with Al Jazeera?" Your answer:
He would certainly understand why I find it challenging because of his belief in the power of television. I remember during the interviews with him, President Carter was going on television one night with his address from the Oval Office. And Nixon said: ''That's right. That's right. That's what matters. It's the tube.''
I don't think Nixon "believed" in the power of television. He understood it. One understands the video medium deeply and instantly when one realizes that it amplifies the fact that one is pale and sweaty. Trust me, I know all about this.
