History has a scary and dangerous way of repeating itself. "All the President's Men is a 1976 American political thriller film about the Watergate scandal, which brought down the presidency of Richard M. Nixon; it is based on the 1974 non-fiction book of the same name by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, the two journalists investigating the Watergate scandal for The Washington Post.

Fast forward 44 years. Bob Woodward, now an associate editor at The Washington Post, has written "Fear: Trump in the White House." This tome may go down in the annals of history as both causing the downfall of the Trump administration and serving as the catalyst in saving American democracy!

People tend to believe whatever they want. Often, what they hear and see is processed through a self-imposed filter that serves to reinforce their preexisting perceptions. They may be oblivious to the truths that surround them.

In the 21st century they are aided by social-media and mainstream cable-news reporting that enables them to believe what they are told rather than to think critically, analyze and reach measured conclusions.

This is even now the case as 'Fear' has been released. Fox News Network has gone on the offensive as it seeks to influence its rabid, red-meat, unidimensional viewers.

Woodward didn't dare write about
