    Bob Buzzanco: Chomsky’s “Useful Idiot”

    Next up in our continuing examination of the media responses to Oliver Stone’s documentary JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass, Jim DiEugenio considers 94-year-old Noam Chomsky’s appearance on Robert Buzzanco’s podcast Green and Red and, in light of their lack of familiarity with the work of the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) as presented in the film, asks the question, “How can men who attest to be leading intellectuals of the left do such incredibly sloppy and irresponsible work?”

    CNN’s Apologia for LBJ, Part Two

    Jim DiEugenio completes his review of this disappointing and less-than-candid four-part series about Johnson and his presidency, LBJ: Triumph and Tragedy, by reviewing the details of Johnson’s entrance into Vietnam and his escalation of the war that ultimately led to the fragmentation of the Democratic Party and a descent into militarism from which the nation has yet to recover.

    Aaron Good continues his review of Adam Curtis’ Can’t Get You Out of My Head with Part 2, which explores how Curtis relies heavily on Kerry Thornley in developing his bizarre take on “conspiracy theories” and then omits, distorts, and cherry picks facts to present his interminable exploration of our current dystopia.
