U.S.: Watergate Gallery debuts at Nixon Library

The new Watergate Gallery is pretty unforgiving, with extensive exhibits detailing the break-in, cover up, and prominently featuring audio recordings from the 2,700 hours or so of Nixon’s Oval Office recordings. The Nixon Foundation, a group of loyalists to say the least, are likely unhappy with this; their original Watergate exhibit presented the scandal as a Democratic plot to bring down the former President. source
