During the Nixom administration, surprise, surprise. I wonder how many reporters/people/groups have spied on during the next 20-30 years. Probably alot.

Reckoning by the subjects' current efforts, one wonders that he had ever done anything worthy of being spied upon.

This has been common knowledge for a while. Walter Isaacson mentioned it in his Kissinger biography that I'm reading now, and that was published in 1992
