Nov. 7, 1960: Paul Coates is on vacation. The Mirror publishes a letter from Mrs. Jeannette Williams, who complains about the slanted, pro-Nixon political coverage in the paper. She asks: “What do you take us for? Idiots?”

Notice the Page 1 editorial by Publisher Norman Chandler backing Richard Nixon, the same one published in The Times.
