Visited the Paley Center for Media

Today we went to the Paley Center for Media on West 52nd Street in Manhattan. I just check this journal and saw that we were last there on December 30, 2007. At first we went to the library aand saw episodes of:

  • Mister Ed

  • The Brady Bunch

  • The Monkees

From there we saw the actual Frost/Nixon interviews as we saw the movie version some weeks ago. Nixon insisted that he did not commit any impeachable offenses, but that he just used very poor judgement. From there we saw "Madison Avenue Goes to Washington: The History of Presidential Campaign Advertising." CNN's Jeff Greenfield narrated this documentary which placed the ads in its historical context.
