50 years later, why we can't stop talking about Watergate

This file photo shows the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C., as seen in this 1972 courtroom evidence photo that was used 50 years ago to illustrate the proximity of the Howard Johnson Hotel (lower left) and the Watergate (R). Burglars used eavesdropping bugs to listen in on the Democratic National Committee with offices in the Watergate setting up shop in the nearby Howard Johnson Hotel and were caught in the act with the scandal leading up to the resignation of then U.S. President Richard Nixon.

Friday marks the 50th anniversary of the Watergate burglary. This hour, we look back at the events surrounding Watergate, discuss how we remember them, and explore the parallels between that event and the January 6 hearings. Plus, we’ll look at the making, and the legacy, of the 1976 film All The President’s Men.
