On the January 15 edition of MSNBC's Hardball, host Chris Matthews devoted a 12-minute segment to the premise that "Bridgegate" meant that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was a modern version of Richard Nixon: “A mean-spirited political trickster trying to run up the score in an easy reelection. Sound familiar? Well, this is not yet a Watergate, but the more we learn about Chris Christie, the more he does look like Richard Nixon.”
