ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the controversy surrounding a review article written by columnist Garry Wills on author Theodore White in the journal "The New York Review of Books." Wills, in his review, criticized White's latest bestseller "Breach of Faith," for rebuking the U.S. administration under President Richard Nixon. Furthermore, Wills charged White's book as a form of censorship of the U.S. administration. In response, White has clarified that the principal thesis of his book is that Nixon fell because he undermined the highest secular ideal in the United States.
