This Was Not Anything Less Than 1960's...

...most significant hour of American television

The date was September 26, 1960

Never before had Presidential candidates debated on television.

The Kennedy-Nixon debate was moderated by Howard K. Smith

Beyond securing John Fitzgerald Kennedy's presidential career,
the 60-minute duel between the handsome Irish-American senator
and Vice President Richard Nixon fundamentally altered
political campaigns, television media
and America's political history.

Say what you want about Kennedy & Nixon.
Think what you want about their politics and their fate.
Praise or condemn their legacy...

But you cannot deny that the first televised Presidential debate
was underscored by Dignity which is the most endangered principle
in modern television media and American culture.
