I really hated Jane Fonda after watching Episode 8. Now that I think about it, there was no real opposing viewpoint presented there. But what could justify that?
I would NOT recommend Nixonland. It is the most boring book I’ve ever tried to get through. For example, after watching the Lynn Novic documentary, I tried getting back into the book, and by coincidence the first thing they mentioned after I got back into the book was how the U.S. had installed Diem over there, who was a corrupt dictator basically. But I was annoyed at how little detail he went into and how much he glossed over. The whole book is like that, where he focuses so much on certain minutiae but ignores other details and big picture stuff, and in the end the whole thing feels really hard to grok and actually get through.
