Media whores are still lying about JFK

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.

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'.

Reclaiming History by Vincent Bugliosi.

The former prosecutor of Charles Manson and author of Helter Skelter.

Amazing book (Reclaiming History) proving beyond all doubt that Lee Harvey Oswald was in fact a lone gunman.

"Media whores are still lying about JFK"
The lying began in the first hours. Dan Rather reported that schoolchildren in Dallas had applauded when told of the president's death. He was first to see the Zapruder film ,andreported the fatal headshot forced Kennedy's head to be thrown forward when it was thrown back. The Zapruder film was altered:

Jefferson Morley is suing the CIA for the records of George Joannides.
George Joannides (director for psychological warfare at the CIA’s Miami station in 62) funded the DRE @$50/month), a group that, linkedHarvey Oswald with Castro, one hour after the assanation. Joannides was in a conflict of interest when he served as the CIA’s representative to the House assassinations committee in 1976.

JFK was a conspiracy theorist:

"CIA's psychological warfare funded the DRE @$50/month)"

Oops - I forgot the k...the DRE received $50,000 a month from the CIA...

Before the assanation the DRE was as well known as the Iraqi National Congress or Syrian xxxx is today. With flattering coverage in Life magazine and the New York Times,the DRE shaped news coverage suggesting that Kennedy had been killed by a Castro supporter. Five days after the assassination the DRE testified at the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC).

They are still shaping the news coverage of these events - see this performance by FOX Freelancer Harley Guy Mark Walsh lending his experpertise on the three WTC building failures:

Even at his purported worst, Kennedy would be the last real President of the US. He grew up learning foreign policy and war strategy with his father, Ambassador to Great Britain, in the lead up to WW-II, was a genuine war hero and smart enough to discount the "advice" from his military advisers about invading Cuba. He could speak several languages - French better than then PM Diefenbaker. Despite serious health issues he managed the highest office in the world with class and panache. It's hard to believe a man that occupied would have time for many affairs, and I'm inclined to believe they were at least highly exaggerated.
