Doug Horne responds to Jeremy Gunn’s 50th anniversary speech 

Doug Horne, former analyst for the Assassination Records Review Board  has posted a thoughtful response to his former boss Jeremy Gunn’s speech about the state of the JFK case.

Anthony Summers reflects on covering the JFK story

Summers was amazed when doing his documentary for BBC’s “Panorama” in the late 1970s that many of his interview subjects had never been spoken to before. “All of the media of that time, not least the New York Times, had completely failed to really quarry into the story.  They simply had not done it,” he said. “They concentrated on the great tapestry of the assassination and the Kennedy era.”
