The Assassination and Mrs. Paine (Part 2)

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.

We link here to Jim DiEugenio’s debate with Robert Buzzanco over Vietnam and who Kennedy was. Buzzanco was upset about the publicity Oliver Stone was getting on liberal sites promoting the JFK Revisited documentaries, so he invited Noam Chomsky onto his podcast Green and Red, where they both blasted Oliver, all three of his films on JFK, and Kennedy, who Chomsky compared to Trump and Reagan. The next week, Buzzanco issued a challenge to anyone from the film to a debate. Jim accepted this challenge, but stipulated that it happen on a neutral site, Aaron Good's podcast American Exception.
