CNN exposes Bill O’Reilly’s JFK fib

I

In the run-up to the 52nd anniversary of JFK’s death, we are re-running some of the most significant JFK stories of the year. In this installment from March 2014, CNN picked up on a story first published on JFK Facts.

Bill O’Reilly’s JFK fib was exposed by reporter’s audio tape


In his best-selling book Killing Kennedy, Bill O’Reilly tells a brief tale of an intrepid reporter — himself — chasing the historical truth of JFK’s assassination in south Florida. But the story itself is a fiction, as O’Reilly revealed in his own voice in an audio recording first published on JFK Facts.

CNN’s Brian Stelter picked up on the story, and I explained what really happened.  …

Did George De Mohrenschildt know Lyndon Johnson?

As the Washington Post and CNN have reported, JFK Facts was the first news organization to expose Fox News host Bill O’Reilly for fibbing about JFK reporting in the 1970s. In his book Killing Kennedy O’Reilly wrote (on p. 300) that he was knocking on the door of the south Florida home of George de Mohrenschildt, a friend of Lee Harvey Oswald, when De Mohrenschildt committed suicide on March 29, 1977. O’Reilly said he heard the sound of the fatal shotgun blast.

Audio recordings, first published here in 2013, prove that O’Reilly, then a TV reporter for WFAA in Dallas, was actually in Texas at the time and planning to “come to Florida” as soon as possible. O’Reilly didn’t get to south Florida until the next day, as this WFAA video shows.

In O’Reilly’s defense, he really was chasing the De Mohrenschildt story at the time — and for good reason.

One million visitors to JFK Facts can’t be wrong

Late on the night of November 13, 2014, JFK Facts welcomed its one millionth site visitor, fulfilling the goal that Rex Bradford and I had when we launched the site on November 22, 2012: to establish the premier Web destination for quality information and informed debate about the assassination of the liberal president.

None of this would have been possible without Rex. With the help of Comments Editor Peter Voskamp and Copy Editor Bill Hogan, I’m looking forward to growing the site’s audience even more in the next year. Exactly how to do that is a challenge we all face.

2013 JFK Facts scoop #2: CIA continues to stonewall on decorated officer’s files

George Joannides

Throughout 2013, I reported on the latest developments in Morley v. CIA, my long-running Freedom of Information Act lawsuit for the JFK files of deceased CIA operative George Joannides,

Picked up by dozens of news organizations, the Joannides story was one of three 2013 journalistic scoops from JFK Facts that made national news.

In my coverage I explained why I filed the lawsuit, recounted the Feb. 25 hearing before U.S. Court of Appeals, and reported on  the appellate court’s favorable ruling in June. In November, I revealed that the CIAacknowledged for the first time in a court filing that Joannides maintained a residence in New Orleans while serving as the chief of the psychological warfare branch of the CIA’s MIami station in 1963-64.
