From the always-interesting John Simkin:
“There is a great book by Kathryn S. Olmstead (Professor of History at the University of California, Davies) called ‘Real Enemies: Conspiracy Theories and American Democracy, World War 1 to 9/11’ (2009).” Read more
John Simkin, moderator of the U.K.-based JFK Education Forum, writes that he plans to shut down the online discussion site, which he launched in 2004.
In an email Simkin blamed the self-centered and obnoxious behavior of commenters:
“I became very disillusioned with the behaviour of the so-called researchers. The degree of hostility they show towards each other is beyond me. The vast majority of researchers only appear to be interested in promoting their own theories and to rubbishing those who disagree with them. I will be closing down the JFK Education Forum when the subscription comes up for renewal.”
“Pete Seeger received some very complimentary obituaries in the American press this week. They only briefly mentioned his blacklisting and definitely did not say anything about the media’s role in the destruction of his career in the early 1950s.”
