"Frost/Nixon" vs. Gibson/Bush

Ezra Klein in the LA Times, offering the new CW: Richard Nixon’s apology to David Frost was a statesmanlike gift of Watergate closure to the American people which can now be used to leverage an apology from George W. Bush.

Old CW: Nixon arrogantly refused to apologize.

We’re making progress. After all, if an influential journalist says it, that means it’s not inaccurate.
