1) Nixon resigning.
Too young to understand it but innately understood the impact it had on my parents.
2) 2nd plane hitting the South Tower.
Literally, just got to work and saw people gathered around a TV. Within 15 seconds, the second plane hit.
3) Geraldo Rivera getting hit in the face with a folding chair.
And thus endeth any credibility for any news journalist
3a) Geraldo Rivera as an embedded reporter with the troops invading Iraq and revealing his location.
And thus revealing that reporters value TV ratings for commercial purposes much more than operational security. But it gives them more "If it bleeds, it leads" headlines and more advertising revenues.
