S&V bemoan the "crippled epistemology" of conspiracy believers. Ironically, they themselves suffer from a profound, even mortal, wound in their own epistemology – i.e., they persistently ignore the difference between lies and truth, writes David Mantik.

The Lost JFK Tapes

You won't hear about the ARRB on The Lost JFK Tapes either. But at least you won't have to suffer through the god-awful Dale Myers type manipulation of fact that produces an unsupportable conclusion, writes Jim DiEugenio.

Did The Mob Kill JFK?

It is evident that [the] three shows [reviewed in this article] reveal a rather unwelcome truth. That is, today's cable TV companies are just as psychologically and socially incapable of telling the truth about President Kennedy's death as the networks were in the sixties and seventies, concludes Jim DiEugenio.

The critiques that Milicent Cranor, David Mantik, Speer and myself have made of Mack's Discovery Channel debacles cannot be reduced to a disagreement over conclusions; they are based on the methods by which the conclusions were reached, writes Jim DiEugenio.

Larry Dunkel and the Sixth Floor are involved in serious, no-holds barred psychological warfare against the American public on the Kennedy case. In their brazen disregard of any journalistic integrity, their script and techniques might have been written by the likes of Allen Dulles or James Angleton, writes Jim DiEugenio.

Almost none of the following is included in the hour: the involvement of Ruby and Oswald in the Cuban conflict through the CIA and the Mafia; the plentiful and multi-leveled connections of Ruby to the DPD; the witnesses who indicate Oswald and Ruby knew each other, writes Jim DiEugenio.

There is an almost pathological use of conditionals; may have, perhaps, could have, if, etc. Conversely, there is an overabundance of hackneyed declaratives where conditionals should have been used, as well as an over-reliance on unnamed sources. And yet this dogged pursuit and elucidation of the documentary record is supposed to be the sine qua non of these two books, writes Bill Davy.

Jack Kennedy had received some 400 death threats annually during his short-lived "thousand days." Ted Kennedy in the late 1960s and through the 1970s received even more—the majority of them, no doubt, from extremists of the right including white supremacists, fundamentalists, Catholic—haters, liberal—haters, and the like, writes H.C. Nash.
