Nixon beat Democrat George Mc Govern in a crushing landslide on Nov. And then he issued his petty command about the Post on Dec.
11, 1972 — following weeks of Post scoops about Watergate.
“But I do want to say, I appreciate how compassionate you’ve suddenly become to the plight of immigrants in this country over the last 24 hours.
You know what I think is disrespectful to the First Lady?
So the break-in and the “no reporter from the Washington Post is ever to be in the White House” were actually about six months apart.
Interestingly, if you listen closely to the recording, it sounds like Nixon does make one exception for the Post — for press conferences. No reporter from the Washington Post is ever to be in the White House again.
That's because it's the rare reality show that has actually produced some bona fide pop stars, hit-makers and even an Oscar winner.
Whoever wins has a tough road getting there, and an even tougher climb up this ladder of the highest "Idol" alumni in album sales.
On Wednesday night, Sean Hannity spent a portion of his show going after Jimmy Kimmel for what Kimmel said about Melania Trump on Monday.

The Watergate break-in was just a day short of a year later: June 17, 1972 — though Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s gradual stream of scoops about the crime, and the White House’s involvement, unfolded over many months.
