Michel Gagne: On Not thinking Critically

Jim DiEugenio dips into the mire and provides a mercifully brief and even somewhat generous review of Michel Jacques Gagne ironically named book, Thinking Critically about the Kennedy Assassination, which might be one of the worst written tomes in the last few years.

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.

CNN’s Apologia for LBJ, Part One

Many historians tend to give President Lyndon B. Johnson credit for policies that President John F. Kennedy actually originated and then assign blame to JFK for policies that LBJ actually originated. Jim DiEugenio sets the record straight in part 1 of his series on CNN’s Joseph Califano-inspired mini-series LBJ: Triumph and Tragedy.

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?”

How the MSM Blew the JFK Case, Part Two

Persisting in our probe into the complicity and participation of the mainstream media (MSM) in the enduring cover-up of the Kennedy assassination, Jim DiEugenio reviews Joseph McBride’s new book Political Truth: The Media and the Assassination of President Kennedy, whose thesis is that “facts, data, and science have become so dubious or malleable in many minds that merely subjective personal belief has been enshrined as the standard for public behavior and the concept of trust in the ideas of others has been discredited.”

How the MSM Blew the JFK Case, Part One

As we continue our analysis of the way the mainstream media (MSM) has reacted to Oliver Stone’s new documentary, Jim DiEugenio provides further background by reviewing Jim DeBrosse’s interesting and, in some ways, unique book See No Evil as a coruscating look at an unsightly problem, namely the refusal of the MSM to address the assassination of President Kennedy in any honest way.

James Kirchick and his JFK Assassination Gurus

James Kirchick’s misleading review of Oliver Stone’s new documentary JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass epitomizes the mainstream media’s refusal to address the film’s content and rehashing instead the discredited writings of Warren Commission apologists, so Jim DiEugenio catalogs this ludicrous use of these disproven sources in the next installment of our ongoing series.
