Media whores are still lying about JFK

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      My heart sank a little when the Straight’s book section editor handed me Bill O’Reilly’s Killing Kennedy. I made a half-hearted promise to review it, and I will, but my nausea is getting the better of me after a hundred pages of purple melodrama about Kennedy’s mythical sexual appetite.

      O’Reilly includes Marilyn Monroe and mob mistress Judith Campbell Exner in his tawdry soap opera, asking with thickly layered cant, “Sex is John Kennedy’s Achilles heel. Why in the world would he do this to Jackie, and what is he doing to the nation in the process?”

      It’s cheap nonsense, made all the worse by O’Reilly’s pitch that his own Irish Catholic background made the Kennedy assassination—it happened 49 years ago today—“somewhat personal for me.” If this was true, he wouldn’t have declared Oswald the assassin on page two.

      Ironically, before he was gobbling Roger Ailes’ pipe at FOX, O’Reilly demonstrated an apparently sincere interest in the assassination. As a friend of Gaeton Fonzi—one of the investigators with the House Select Committee on Assassinations, and the author of the indispensable book, The Last Investigation—O’Reilly was well acquainted with the Cuban-CIA milieu that facilitated Kennedy’s death.

      Check the video below from the early ‘90s in which O’Reilly tracks down Antonio Veciana, head of the CIA-assisted anti-Castro group, Alpha 66. During the HSCA investigation, Veciana revealed to Fonzi that he saw Oswald with CIA officer David Atlee Phillips in Dallas. Not long after that, he took a bullet in the head.

      O'Reilly gives me nausea. He belongs with the other ultra right wing jokes, on his joke Fox network.

      Its still fascinating to me that the US felt it necessary to shoot their own president. I guess it would have been too futuristic to claim Communist terrorists commandeered the presidents plane with Kennedy aboard and flew it into a skyscraper.

      I'd like to see Anonymous do an investigation into the CIA on the Kennedy assassination in their own very particular style.

      If you want to do some research into the deaths of key JFK-assassination witnesses, go through the assassination stories that appeared in Ramparts magazine. More than one article highlighted suspicious deaths.

      The media whores are also still lying to us about 9/11 also.

      I wonder if the Straight already stipulates in its employment contracts nowadays that its authors must latch on to and promote absolutely every conspiracy theory in existence. Haven't read anything about the fake moon landing recently. You guys are slippin'.
