32. Memorandum From the President’s Assistant (Haldeman) to the Director of Communication for the Executive Branch (Klein)1
Per your request, I talked with the President about the possibility of having Henry Kissinger appear on shows like Meet the Press and specifically about the April 30th date.
The President does not want Kissinger to make public television appearances of this sort. He is perfectly willing to have Henry meet with commentators, editors, etc. on a background basis in private sessions but does not want him—or any other White House staff members—to appear as Administration spokesmen in public.
