The JFK Assassination — Richard Nixon's Taxi-Cab Tales

Richard Nixon gave conflicting statements about how he first learned of the death of President John F. Kennedy, as revealed by former White House correspondent Don Fulsom:


"In a 1964 Reader's Digest article, Nixon recalled hailing a cab after his Dallas-New York flight: 'We were waiting for a light to change when a man ran over from the street corner and said that the President had just been shot in Dallas.' In November of 1973, however, Nixon said in Esquire that his cabbie 'missed a turn somewhere and we were off the highway ... a woman came out of her house screaming and crying. I rolled down the cab window to ask what the matter was and when she saw my face she turned even paler. She told me that John Kennedy had just been shot in Dallas.'"
