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.

The Assassination and Mrs. Paine (Part 1)

Written by

Jim DiEugenio reviews Max Good’s new documentary The Assassination and Mrs. Paine and, here in part 1, begins with a survey of the literature regarding the peculiar connections of the Paines and their questionable relationship with the Oswalds and how Good presents these curious relationships and depicts their intriguing behavior both before and after the assassination.

In part 2 of this article, Dr. David W. Mantik continues his point-by-point responses to Michel Jacques Gagné’s analysis in the new book Thinking Critically about the Kennedy Assassination (2022) using the documented evidence in the case and, in the process, fully demonstrates that Gagné’s “critical thinking” is anything but.

David W. Mantik responds to one of the newest books defending the Warren Commission, Thinking Critically about the Kennedy Assassination (2022) by Michel Jacques Gagné, with a genuine demonstration of critical thinking and its application to the evidence related to the assassination and its investigation. In part one of this two-part article, Dr. Mantik addresses Gagné’s analysis point-by-point.

JFK VS LBJ: The MSM in Overdrive

Written by

The efforts by the mainstream media to malign the accomplishments and legacy of President Kennedy continue in force almost 60 years after his death, so Jim DiEugenio expands his new series thwarting the LBJ apologists and hagiographers by examining the background and work of Mark Updegrove as part of these efforts and correcting the many flaws in his historical comprehension.

Martin Hay assesses The JFK Assassination Dissected by Dr. Cyril Wecht and Dawna Kaufmann and considers it a mostly worthwhile first or second book for anyone developing an interest in the subject, but has little new or revelatory to offer those of us who have been around for a while.

Michel Gagne: On Not thinking Critically

Written by

Jim DiEugenio dips into the mire and provides a mercifully brief and even somewhat generous review of Michel Jacques Gagne ironically named book, Thinking Critically about the Kennedy Assassination, which might be one of the worst written tomes in the last few years.

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?”
