Self-promotion by adopting the right talking points characterizes the work of people like Sabato, eager to become televised mouthpieces of establishment propaganda in an age of dying empire, writes Mike Swanson.
In reply to Michael Shermer and the LA Times, David Mantik asks why the media refuse to accept the overwhelmingly obvious conclusion that Oswald was framed.
A critical review of the NOVA production (November 14, 2013) – "Cold Case JFK."
Ron says "that all is uncertainty, that we'll never know who killed Kennedy or why to any degree of certainty." Well, with Ron leading the way that is probably true. ... To people who know something about the JFK case, and the ARRB declassified files, it is Ron who is the wingnut theorist. The idea that JFK was killed as a result of a high level plot is not a theory. It is a provable fact. End of story, writes Jim DiEugenio.
Jim DiEugenio exposes the disingenuousness and silliness of the anti-conspiracy arguments of David Reitzes and John McAdams, comparing them to those of the media shill Michael Shermer.
Examines McAdams' relationship with Wikipedia, his ground rules for debates, his rightwing politics and activism, his upcoming (2013) PBS special, and his recruitment help for the CIA.
McAdams has selectively culled the information he puts [on his site]. He then trumpets that site loudly as undermining the "buffs". As with Bugliosi, his argument is gaseous, since he has rigged the site beforehand, write Jim DiEugenio and Brian Hunt.
Rosenbaum represents all that is wrong with the MSM on both Jim Angleton and the JFK case, writes Jim DiEugenio.
El Exigente does the same thing with Angleton as he does with the critics. Except in reverse. He hides the worst aspects, softens the weak spots, and covers up the man's disasters. And, most necessary of all, he completely censors Angleton's associations with Oswald, writes Jim DiEugenio.
