The appeal of JFK Facts

I launched JFK Facts a year ago and the metrics are in: what people want is not JFK theories, but facts.

So think about supporting this site with a donation to the Mary Ferrell Foundation today. It’s easy and it will make a difference.

Look at the “Breaking JFK News” column to the left and you will see proof that JFK Facts is making a difference in the JFK coverage of AP, CNN, Fox News, Detroit Free Press and other mainstream news organizations.

With your help, we can continue to make a difference.

Why are we effective?
