The most powerful office in the world. The world's most powerful medium. Together, they've changed the course of history.
In the first chapter of our 5-part series, join host Chris Wallace as FOX News examines the presidential race between Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy.
In a career that spanned almost five decades, Richard Nixon became the model of political resilience. But back in 1952, Nixon's career could have ended quickly — if it hadn't been for television. We'll explain.
Then, politics on TV came of age with the first Nixon-Kennedy debate in 1960. Nixon had been warned not to take on the suave and handsome Kennedy. But Nixon rejected the advice and paid a steep price. We'll share the inside story of their great debate.
Plus, how TV captured one of the most tragic events in American history: the assassination of President Kennedy.
