CBS has produced a number of specials on the assassination. In The Pigs Grunt, John Kelin describes the unusual circumstances surrounding the network's four-part documentary in 1967.
Jerry Policoff wrote the revealing article on CBS and other major media called JFK: How the Media Assassinated the Real Story.
