All the President's Men, nearly 50 years apart: Nixon and Trump front pages
If news is the first rough draft of history, then this week's front pages won't be quickly forgotten.
Why it matters: On Monday, former President Donald Trump made history as the first U.S. president to be indicted not just once, but in four separate cases.
- The next day's front page of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution featured portraits of Trump and his associates centered below a bold, uppercase headline.
The iconic A1 recalls another historic newspaper front page, one from nearly 50 years ago: the Mar. 2, 1974, edition of the New York Times announcing a grand jury's indictment of seven aides to then-President Nixon.
It marked a peak in the Watergate scandal that would, just months later, lead to Nixon's resignation.
- Trump, meanwhile, continues to lead the pack in the GOP presidential primaries as he makes another bid for the White House.
For the record, here's Wednesday's NYT front page, also featuring photos of those charged in Georgia.
