The Unheard Tapes: Part 1

Written by

Now that Netflix has released its newly hyped documentary, The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes, Don McGovern starts his assessment of the sometimes dubious content and often dubious qualifications of the sources interviewed by Anthony Summers in these “unheard” tapes in part 1 of this two-part article. McGovern notes that Summers offers some commentary as well about his investigation into Marilyn’s life and her death, but, sadly, primarily about her death and her sex life.

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.

A Review of Oliver Stone’s JFK: Destiny Betrayed

Written by

Bob Fox has recently published on his blog Green Bay Bob Fox a very detailed and helpful four-part synopsis and review of Oliver Stone’s new documentary JFK: Destiny Betrayed. He reviews each of the four episodes individually and we include links to each article here for you to access with our recommendation.

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.

Here we publish a retrospective of late 20th Century research on Ruth and Michael Paine by Carol Hewett, Steve Jones, and Barbara La Monica as originally printed in Probe Magazine. These authors did some ground-breaking work in this area and we owe a debt of gratitude to them for the evidence they uncovered and the insights they provided.
