Last summer, when stalwarts of former President Richard M. Nixon got a glimpse of how the library planned to portray the Watergate scandal, they responded with a 158-page memo assailing the proposed exhibit line by line, panel by panel.
The $500,000 Watergate exhibit, four years in the making, opened Thursday and features interactive screens, White House tapes and 131 taped interviews that replace the perfunctory, much-ridiculed narrative of Watergate that Nixon himself approved when the library opened with private funds in 1990.
