James DiEugenio

One of the most respected researchers and writers on the political assassinations of the 1960s, Jim DiEugenio is the author of two books, Destiny Betrayed (1992/2012) and The JFK Assassination: The Evidence Today (2018), co-author of The Assassinations, and co-edited Probe Magazine (1993-2000).   See "About Us" for a fuller bio.

In part 2 of this essay, Jim DiEugenio continues his review of Donald McGovern’s Murder Orthodoxies by tracing the further trajectory of the Marilyn Monroe/Kennedys mythology as it soars into outer space, concluding that the authors of this hoax created a three-ring Barnum and Bailey circus by supporting and aggrandizing each other.

Jim DiEugenio reviews Donald McGovern’s important work on Marilyn Monroe's untimely death, Murder Orthodoxies, and, in part 1 of this essay, examines the launching of the mythology surrounding her alleged relationships with John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy and the money angle associated with promoting this mythology.

In this two-part essay, Jim DiEugenio builds on unpublished material obtained by Roger Feinman from CBS in order to reconstruct how the 1967 CBS special became the shameless defense of the Warren Commission's case against Lee Harvey Oswald that it was.

Counterpunch, JFK , and Vietnam

Jim DiEugenio once again responds to the incomplete and inaccurate history of Vietnam, and of JFK's role, presented by Counterpunch, noting that if, as the article claims, most American leaders did not understand what the war was really about, Kennedy did: that was why he was getting out.


Jim DiEugenio assesses the historical accuracy of James Patterson and Cynthia Fagen’s The House of Kennedy and discovers the shoddy research and tabloid style of the book make it unfit for reading. Their idea is to present the Kennedy clan as a bunch of useless wastrels, whose two most prominent political representatives were murdered by lone nuts. Therefore, their implication is that these murders have no political or historic importance.

Jim DiEugenio reviews the career of Chris Matthews upon his resignation from MSNBC, asserting, “I cannot help but wonder who will replace him, and if that person will be any kind of an improvement. I would think he or she could not be much worse.”

Was the TFX Case a Scandal?

Jim DiEugenio revisits the TFX affair, in light of current research, and gets to the bottom of the smear campaign led by Henry Jackson and others against the procurement reforms being instituted by Robert McNamara and JFK.

The irony of Newsmax posting an article entitled “Conspiracy Theories Merit Only Undivided Suspicion” is “too rich to be ignored,” writes Jim DiEugenio, because its CEO and founder, Chris Ruddy, was responsible for propagating one of the wildest and most rudderless conspiracy theories of recent decades: that Vince Foster was murdered by sinister forces employed by Bill and Hillary Clinton.
