Best of Enemies (documentary)
"In the summer of 1968 television news changed forever. Dead last in the ratings, ABC hired two towering public intellectuals to debate each other during the Democratic and Republican national conventions. William F. Buckley Jr. was a leading light of the new conservative movement. A Democrat and cousin to Jackie Onassis, Gore Vidal was a leftist novelist and polemicist. Armed with deep-seated distrust and enmity, Vidal and Buckley believed each other’s political ideologies were dangerous for America. Like rounds in a heavyweight battle, they pummeled out policy and personal insult. Their explosive exchanges devolving into vitriolic name-calling. Live and unscripted, they kept viewers riveted. Ratings for ABC News skyrocketed, and a new era in public discourse was born."

RE: Best of Enemies (documentary)
William F. Buckley Jr. is rolling over in his grave with the state of the current Republican Party. Instead of bragging about how they are like Reagan, they should brag about how they are like Buckley. My Guess. None of them has even fucking heard of him.
