Why were they debating radio? Where they paid off by the tv industry?
Why not review it?

True and in the election as well but Nixon ignored all the fraud and conceded.
It seems that Nixon might have beat the shit out of the rich dilettante at the polls too but old Joe came through and his contacts in corrupt Chicago and the power of the liberal media turned Illinois and the election over to Camelot. Nixon was too smart to try to buck the liberal media in 1960 and conceded. Too bad he wasn't smart enough to realize that the liberal media has a long memory and a long corrupt arm. Who in the world would have thought that left wing reporters could have used unverified information from an unverified "informant" and kept the identity a secret for 30 years until he was dead and couldn't answer any questions? That's the power of the liberal media when they are united and committed.
Nixon won the debates.
but JFK aquiitted himself pretty good also
actually - the twop were pals in congress and it shows...............................
The 2 were pals in congress.
As I recall this was the first time a presidential debate was aired on both radio and TV. According to a poll of radio listeners, Nixon clearly won the debate; however those who watched the debates on TV thought Kennedy was clearly the winner. The difference of opinions between the radio and TV audiences was said to show the importance of image. Kennedy appeared youthful, confident and relaxed. However Nixon had refused makeup and sweated profusely under the camera lights. Nixon looked uncomfortable and some people said he looked dishonest. My knowledge comes from news reports at the time, but I found a link for you:

You are right.
"Do you realize the responsibility I carry? I'm the only person standing between Richard Nixon and the White House."
President John F. Kennedy
