- Alexandra Zapruder, Twenty-Six Seconds: A Personal History of the Zapruder Film (Part 1) Written by Jeff Carter
The first in a two-part installment in which Jeff Carter reviews a book that "reveals some new – albeit not earth-shattering – information", but is also "imbued with a certain partisanship, not limited to family interests, which dulls the author’s critical thinking in some key areas."
- Fidel Castro's First Speech on the JFK Assassination, 11/23/1963 Written by Kennedys&King
Fidel Castro's speech, broadcast on Cuban radio and television on Saturday evening, November 23, 1963, concerning the assassination of President Kennedy, reprinted here thanks to David Giglio at Our Hidden History.
- The 2016 Election, Historical Amnesia and Deep Politics Written by Alex Sill
Extralegal assassinations, unwarranted domestic surveillance, interventionist wars at the behest of corporate interests, torture or other activities of that stripe – these all have their roots in the Dulles era in which covert, corporate power developed into a well-oiled and unaccountable machine running roughshod. These dark forces have continued to operate regardless of who is elected president; and the refusal to face them has caused the Democratic Party to lose its way, writes Alex Sill.
- Was Dorothy Kilgallen Murdered over the JFK Case? Written by James DiEugenio
If Shaw had restrained himself, or if he had had an editor to point out the problems with his design, then this would have been a good and valuable book about Dorothy Kilgallen: who she really was, what we know and do not know about her death. But such was not the case. I would actually recommend Sara Jordan’s informative and objective essay instead, concludes Jim DiEugenio.
- Larry Tye, Bobby Kennedy: The Making of a Liberal Icon Written by James DiEugenio
Because of its innumerable textual and sourcing problems, Tye's book is neither worth reading nor buying, concludes Jim DiEugenio, who is prompted to muse: "Why did the author write the book? Only he can answer that question".
- The Magic Scalp Written by Milicent Cranor
Milicent Cranor refutes John Canal's claim that the back-of-the-head JFK autopsy photo was taken after the morticians reconstructed the head, supposedly moving the scalp from the back to the front, dragging with it the entrance wound, and covering up bone damage.
- Randy Benson, The Searchers Written by Joseph E. Green
From about 1966, it became the strategy of the MSM not to let the Warren Commission critics speak without being interfered with, or caricatured. After Stone’s movie came out, the MSM simply would not place the critics on their programs at all. Benson counters that by simply letting the critics speak about the case without being interfered with, writes Joseph Green.
