Alec Cockburn Lives: Matt Stevenson, JFK and CounterPunch

Written by James DiEugenio
CounterPunch  is at times a valuable journal. But apparently they cannot outgrow the legacy of Alec Cockburn. What he represented on Kennedy and Vietnam was a gross distortion of historical fact, which is a shame when it’s done by the Left as well as the Right, laments Jim DiEugenio.

Paul Street meets Jane Hamsher at Arlington

Written by James DiEugenio

The Enemy Within: The Rise and Fall of the Alliance for Progress

Written by Michael Le Flem

The Newly Declassified JFK Assassination Files

Rachel Maddow, JFK and Easy Money

Written by
Maddow’s staff fished out some archival footage from NBC, did some research on Pettit, got permission to show parts of JFK and called up Shenon. This results in nothing but aimless and uninformed banter, and is pretty much symptomatic of the MSM’s attitude toward these releases, writes Jim DiEugenio.
