The bogus “Secret Service Man Did It” conspiracy meme (it doesn’t deserve to be called a theory) has persisted since the publication of the foolish book Mortal Error in the 1980s.
The meme was revived for the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination by ReelzChannel and an Australian cop who should know better.
And Malcolm Gladwell should definitely know better. I’m not getting snarky on the guy. I think Gladwell is a great writer and original thinker, but in this case I think he’s made a mistake.
