Sad! NBC’s erroneous reporting on JFK files

NBC News reported earlier this week that President Trump had released “most but not all” of the government’s secret JFK files.

That was wrong, according to Rex Bradford, president of the Mary Ferrell Foundation and webmaster of the internet’s most comprehensive collection of JFK records.

Thursday’s released contained only 52 new documents that had previously been completely withheld — less than 2 percent of the total, said Rex Bradford, president of the nonprofit Mary Ferrell Foundation, which has digitized hundreds of thousands of the records related to Kennedy’s murder.

Meanwhile, he said, Thursday’s release of 2,839 previously redacted documents accounts for less than 10 percent of what had remained in the Archives’ files, he said.

“To borrow a phrase,” Bradford said, “sad.”
