United States presidential election, 1960 .Nixon lost the debate against Kennedy because T.V images made Kennedy look better ----- A new medium was brought to the campaign: televised presidential debates. In the first of four such debates, Nixon was recovering from illness and, wearing little makeup, looked wan and uncomfortable, in contrast to the composed Kennedy. Nixon's performance in the debate was perceived to be mediocre in the visual medium of television, though many people listening on the radio thought that Nixon had won.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Nixon#1960_pr...
