Readers Zandalf writes about the History Channel’s JFK Declassified.
“This new show seems to be another attempt to unveil the “hidden truths” about the JFK murder, yet it also seems to be yet another distraction from the facts.

The History Channel has announced it will air what it calls “the definitive guide to JFK’s assassination,” based in part on a new poll of thousands of Americans, which found 71 percent of Americans reject the official theory of JFK’s murder.
“Public skepticism of the so-called ‘Lone Gunman Theory,’ supported by the Warren Commission in 1964, is shockingly high,” the History Channel says.
