"When Nixon Taped Joe Biden"

The sinister name of the article "When Nixon Taped Joe Biden" deceives readers. The article also links a tweet containing Nixon's 1987 note to Donald Trump.  I've noticed that parallels between Nixon and Trump dominate the media, and even when journalists associate Nixon with other presidents (Biden, here), those journalists still manage to reinforce the Nixon-Trump parallel.
