CNN’s Apologia for LBJ, Part Two

Jim DiEugenio completes his review of this disappointing and less-than-candid four-part series about Johnson and his presidency, LBJ: Triumph and Tragedy, by reviewing the details of Johnson’s entrance into Vietnam and his escalation of the war that ultimately led to the fragmentation of the Democratic Party and a descent into militarism from which the nation has yet to recover.

Doug Horne Replies: On Oswald’s Earnings

One of the most attention getting parts of JFK: Destiny Betrayed, the four-hour version, is the revelation by Douglas Horne about Oswald’s earnings before he defected to Russia. As the former military records analyst for the Assassination Records Review Board, his voice carries some weight on this issue. He says in the film that he learned from an official contact that Oswald was not being paid by the Marines in the third quarter of 1959. This is quite an interesting statement, especially in light of the fact that Oswald left the Marines under a hardship discharge, visited Texas briefly, and then left for Russia at this time. This was after somehow acquiring the Russian language while in the Marines. We asked Doug to amplify on this important issue for us and he kindly did so.

Next up in our continuing examination of the media responses to Oliver Stone’s documentary JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass, Jim DiEugenio considers 94-year-old Noam Chomsky’s appearance on Robert Buzzanco’s podcast Green and Red and, in light of their lack of familiarity with the work of the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) as presented in the film, asks the question, “How can men who attest to be leading intellectuals of the left do such incredibly sloppy and irresponsible work?”

James Kirchick and his JFK Assassination Gurus

James Kirchick’s misleading review of Oliver Stone’s new documentary JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass epitomizes the mainstream media’s refusal to address the film’s content and rehashing instead the discredited writings of Warren Commission apologists, so Jim DiEugenio catalogs this ludicrous use of these disproven sources in the next installment of our ongoing series.

The Unprecedented Debate over JFK Revisited

In our on-going series responding to the American media coverage of Oliver Stone’s new documentary JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass, Jim DiEugenio examines how this unprecedented debate persists in using dubious and discredited sources in an attempt to somehow lessen the growing impact that the new evidence presented in the film is having.

Gerald Posner vs Oliver Stone’s JFK Revisited

Gerald Posner recently emerged from obscurity to try to counter Oliver Stone’s JFK Revisited documentary by hawking digital copies of his 1993 book Cased Closed, so Jim DiEugenio yet again demonstrates to Stone’s detractors how the documentary uses evidence released by the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB), which cannot be refuted by a dated Warren Commission apologia based on an obsolete evidentiary record.
