The Myth of Spiro Agnew's “Nattering Nabobs of Negativism”


In books, trade publications and newspaper articles, journalists often report that former Vice President Spiro T. Agnew described journalists as “nattering nabobs of negativism.” That journalistic maxim is wrong. Agnew used the phrase in the heat of the 1970 mid-term congressional campaign to refer to politicians critical of Nixon administration policies. Nothing in his speech referred to the press. Although the initial coverage of Agnew's distinctive phrase was accurate, within a year journalists began to usurp the aphorism and conflate it with Agnew's celebrated November 1969 speeches criticizing the news media. This article traces the origin of the nabob myth while recounting perhaps the two most remarkable media speeches given by a high-ranking official. Although journalists have perpetuated other myths, the misappropriation of Agnew's alliterative phrase is distinctive because it reveals a primal journalistic need to recast criticism as a blame-the-messenger screed.
