Dale Myers and his World of Illusion

Lone Nut supporter Dale Myers recently attacked Oliver Stone's film, JFK Revisited. Stone's screenwriter, James DiEugenio, demonstrates how groundless those attacks are with this detailed reply.

Jim DiEugenio reviews the new JFK assassination book Suppressing the Truth, by Charles Brandt, and identifies its many weaknesses.

Monika Wiesak's new America’s Last President is among the most important books on the case in years. James DiEugenio reviews it for Kennedys and King.

The attorney representing Sirhan Sirhan says she is appealing the decision to deny the convicted assassin of RFK a parole. James DiEugenio has details.

UPDATE: Kennedys and King has received a special request from Sirhan's attorney. Please scroll down for details!

Jim DiEugenio chronicles the media cover-up of the conspiracy verdict in the civil suit brought against Loyd Jowers by attorney William Pepper on behalf of the Martin Luther King Jr. family. Although the 12 jurors found Jowers liable for King’s death, the New York Times reported that “a vast conspiracy [was] alleged but not proved.” As Jim surveys the rest of the coverage, this editorial position in a news story is endemic of the mainstream media reporting on this case in general and this trial verdict in particular.

Fletcher Prouty vs Edward Epstein

Reader James Finn has clipped two valuable stories from the MSM that illustrate the point Fletcher Prouty was making about Kennedy’s withdrawal plan already impacting the war economy and that fact that JFK’s death turned that deceleration around in a hurry. As an intro, Jim DiEugenio reviews Prouty’s position and Edward Epstein’s attack on it.

Jim DiEugenio continues his review of Max Good’s new documentary The Assassination and Mrs. Paine and, in part 2, outlines the point/counterpoint approach that Good uses between Warren Commission defenders and critics and probes the involvement of Ruth herself in post-assassination investigations and media coverage.

Max Blumenthal is the first person in the media, or alternative media, to note the declension that David Talbot talked about in JFK Revisited, namely that the wave of assassinations in the sixties eventually impacted the social fabric of America. So much so to the point that today, we have become largely inured to the almost weekly gunshot atrocities that have plagued the country for years on end. And there seems to be no end in sight. Max’s father is Sid Blumenthal, who co-wrote Government by Gunplay back in 1976, which was about the assassinations of the sixties. Oliver Stone did an interesting interview about JFK Revisited with The Gray Zone months ago. Hopefully that helped inspire this perceptive piece by Max.

Jim DiEugenio reviews Max Good’s new documentary The Assassination and Mrs. Paine and, here in part 1, begins with a survey of the literature regarding the peculiar connections of the Paines and their questionable relationship with the Oswalds and how Good presents these curious relationships and depicts their intriguing behavior both before and after the assassination.
