Nice to be at Google+ for the opening of our new web site, https://kennedysandking.com. In an age of too much fake news, too much corporate sponsored propaganda, and too much covering up about how America got into the situation it finds itself in, I am glad to say that we try and answer that question. And we do it by telling the truth about how the calculus of the American power structure was altered. That is by the assassinations of the sixties. We then depict how policies were then changed as a result. Hopefully, especially after the last election, more people will want to find out how we went from King, Malcolm X, and the Kennedys to Trump, Pence, Clinton and Kaine. Because it was not a fair deal. -- James DiEugenio

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."

Was Dorothy Kilgallen Murdered over the JFK Case?

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.

From the Archives: The Creation of the Warren Commission

Based on the release in 1993 of the White House telephone transcripts for the period immediately following the assassination, Donald Gibson shows that the idea for the Warren Commission was pushed on LBJ by Joseph Alsop and Eugene Rostow – people belonging to the same eastern establishment power elite in which Allen Dulles circulated.

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.

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."
