How the MSM Blew the JFK Case, Part Two

Written by James DiEugenio
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

Written by
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.

Alecia Long Lays an Egg

Written by
Nearly 55 years after the New Orleans inquiry into the JFK assassination began, yet another character assassination of Jim Garrison has been published, Alecia Long’s Cruising for Conspirators, so Jim DiEugenio diligently documents how the LSU history professor ignores a preponderance of ARRB evidence released in the last 30 years and instead relies upon the outdated and biased Clay Shaw apologia, American Grotesque, to smear Garrison and his investigation.

Cotton Coated Conspiracy, by John Roberts?

Into the Storm, by John Newman

Written by James DiEugenio
Jim DiEugenio reviews John Newman’s latest volume on the JFK case, Into the Storm, finding it a bit uneven, but very well done in its analysis of how the CIA switched back their plots to kill Castro onto the Kennedy White House and how the military under Lemnitzer and Lansdale was proposing false flag operations to justify a war with Cuba.

Operation Dragon

Written by
Jim DiEugenio takes an incisive look at Operation Dragon, by former CIA Director James Woolsey and the late Ion Mihai Pacepa, and concludes that, due to being riddled with errors and marred by unwarranted assumptions, it is an outdated, slightly humorous propaganda effort.
Donald McGovern continues his review of Mark Shaw’s Collateral Damage by examining Shaw’s odd photographic evidence and the many wrong depictions contained in the book, by analyzing Shaw’s contrived murder scenario using a bulb syringe as the weapon, and by summarizing Shaw’s scholarship and thesis, concluding that he not only engaged in rumor, opinion, gossip, and innuendo, but in the worst form of gross speculation and evidence creation.
Donald McGovern reviews Mark Shaw’s recent book Collateral Damage, largely about the deaths of Marilyn Monroe and Dorothy Kilgallen, and discovers that the author recklessly engaged in twisting the facts to suit his theories through the use of a fabricated friendship, peculiar and unreliable resources, discredited witnesses, and more in Part 1 of a two-part analysis.
