The former New York Times reporters talks about his new important book, “A Cruel and Shocking Act,” at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia tomorrow, November 18.
From the program:
“As the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination approaches, persistent questions still remain: Was the President killed by a single gunman? Was Lee Harvey Oswald part of a conspiracy? Did the Warren Commission intentionally cover up important details? Bestselling author and former New York Times reporter Philip Shenon addresses those questions and more in his newest book A Cruel and Shocking Act: The Secret History of the Kennedy Assassination. “

Eric Norden in 1966 wrote a pretty devastating editorial in The Realist about so-called liberals, both inside and outside the media.
“Liberals, however, do not even possess the one virtue of most fanatics: loyalty. Libs pursue their vendettas with vicious vigor, but they are equally prepared to jettison the ostensible object of their devotion when the transcendent interests of the power structure are threatened, as in the case of the Kennedy assassination. The grief of the libs at the loss of their young champion did not extend to a dedication to uncover the truth about his death; as soon as the indicators pointed, not to a lone assassin, but a well-organized conspiracy within agencies of the federal government, including the FBI and the CIA, the liberals looked the other way. JFK could be mourned, but not avenged; too many apple-carts would be upset in the process. At the upper-level of the Liberal Establishment there was a desperate effort, conscious and cynical, to cover up all traces of conspiracy and reassure the American people that all was still for the best in the best of all possible worlds…To even entertain the suspicion that elements of this most wondrous of all governments, whether in the intelligence networks or the political police, could band together to liquidate the presiding High Brahmin, and then coolly cover up their deeds, would shake the average liberal’s neat and soothing assumptions about his world to their very roots. Such things could and do happen with depressing regularity in many other countries but never, never, of course, in America. Thus, those who challenged the Establishment’s version of events were ‘extremists’ with one or another different axes to grind, perhaps paranoid and at the very least victims of a ‘conspiratorial view of history.’ History is not, of course, a succession of conspiracies; what liberals conveniently forgot was that there are conspiracies in history. The world, much less America, is not the tidy design of the League of Women Voters; it can happen here. But the blood of John Kennedy was a small price to pay for the preservation of liberal delusions.”
The CBS special Saturday night was convincing that a head shot could not have come from the knoll. How are they wrong?
Why are these files not on Wikileaks?
Mr. Morley what is the response you recieve from the white house, senate intelligence committee, on the releasing of the files. I personally believe CIA will not release them unless the Kennedy family pushes for it! Thanks for you tireless efforts!

“Philip Shenon addresses those questions and more in his newest book”
Does he address the tape of Hoover discussing the Oswald imposter on the Mexico city Tape with LBJ: “we have up here the tape and the photograph of the man who was at the Soviet embassy, using Oswald’s name. That picture and the tape do not correspond to this man’s voice, nor to his appearance. In other words, it appears that there is a second person who was at the Soviet embassy down there.”

It’s funny how lone nutters coverse about theories about Castro without embarrassment.
Philip Shenon’s book A Cruel and Shocking Act begins with a deception. It then gets worse:
A newsreel is less painful:
