Nixon Library Becomes Part of National Archives
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
When the Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace opened in 1990, scholars ridiculed the Nixon-approved Watergate exhibit. It said the scandal that destroyed Nixon's presidency was a coup by his enemies and claimed Woodward and Bernstein offered bribes for scoops. Yesterday, the library changed hands. Now part of the National Archives, the full picture will be revealed along with millions of pages and thousands of hours of Nixon history.
It's MORNING EDITION.
