For Richard Nixon, the “Saturday Night Massacre” was the beginning of the end.
The nation finally turned against the embattled president after he forced out — on Oct. 20, 1973 — the attorney general and his deputy who refused to get rid of the special prosecutor investigating him.
A week later, for the first time, a plurality of Americans favored impeachment. And 10 months later, he resigned.
But Nixon didn’t have Fox News in his corner.
