THE KENNEDY-NIXON TV DEBATES IN 1960

See the source image

For the first time in U.S. history, a debate between major party presidential candidates was shown on television.

The presidential hopefuls, John F. Kennedy, a Democratic senator
of
Massachusetts, and Richard M. Nixon, the vice president of the
United States, met in a
Chicago studio to discuss U.S. domestic
matters.

Kennedy emerged the apparent winner from this first of four
televised
debates, partly owing to his greater ease before the
camera than Nixon, who, unlike Kennedy, seemed nervous and
declined to wear makeup.
