The national daily revisits a story that JFK Facts highlighted in March, a story that I only learned last fall when I met Gayle Nix Jackson at a book event in Charlottesville, Virginia, and heard the remarkable story of her grandfather.
Gayle’s quest to find the original film originates in both affection for her grandfather and a desire for historical truth. I don’t know if the original film will change our understanding of November 22 but it might. This is another case where we, meaning ordinary Americans, have to do what the government did not: obtain the best evidence and analyze it.
The respectful treatment of USA Today also shows how a mainstream news organization can cover the JFK story without sinking in the bog of apologetics or the swamp of conspiracy theories.
