Soledad O'Brien meets Mary Meyer

As Soleded O’Brien launches her 8-part podcast on the murder of Mary Meyer entitled Murder on the Towpath, Jim DiEugenio recalls her work on the Martin Luther King, Jr. assassination case and introduces a special 9-part series here on KennedysAndKing. We will post a Mary Meyer article each week of the podcast and then Jim will write a summary on the ninth week.

In part 2 of this essay, Jim DiEugenio continues his review of Donald McGovern’s Murder Orthodoxies by tracing the further trajectory of the Marilyn Monroe/Kennedys mythology as it soars into outer space, concluding that the authors of this hoax created a three-ring Barnum and Bailey circus by supporting and aggrandizing each other.

Jim DiEugenio reviews Donald McGovern’s important work on Marilyn Monroe's untimely death, Murder Orthodoxies, and, in part 1 of this essay, examines the launching of the mythology surrounding her alleged relationships with John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy and the money angle associated with promoting this mythology.

In this two-part essay, Jim DiEugenio builds on unpublished material obtained by Roger Feinman from CBS in order to reconstruct how the 1967 CBS special became the shameless defense of the Warren Commission's case against Lee Harvey Oswald that it was.
