What Cass Sunstein and the New Yorker get wrong about conspiracy theories

Ezra Klein and Cass Sunstein have some sensible things to say about the disturbing prevalence and power of conspiracy theories  in this Vox video, especially about the toxic combination of conspiracy theories, ignorance, and extremism. So does the New Yorker. But these opinion-makers are wrong–or rather, underinformed–about the JFK story. Read more

The hazards of running a JFK joint in the era of Trump

Two JFK Facts commenters have recently criticized me personally, and I feel the need to respond. I know an editor should have a thick skin but a season of succesful conspiracy theorizing has opened up the real possibility that U.S. nuclear codes will soon be delivered into the hands of a racist buffoon. I’m feeling a little touchy.

So let me dispatch with these theories and theorists.

Bowing to CIA, National Archives won’t review secret JFK records

When David Ferriero, Archivist of the United States, solicited comment on U.S. declassification policy on Monday, he failed to mention that the Archives has already decided that the release of ancient secret U.S. government records related to the assassination of President John F.

Summers’ question for the New Yorker

Anthony Summers, author of a new edition of his JFK book, “Not In Your Lifetime,” has a letter in the current issue of the New Yorker, responding to critic Adam Gopnik’s recent JFK essay. Summers questions the magazine’s faith in the lone gunman theory, firmly but politely, while dismissing far-fetched conspiracy theories that only confuse people.

From Adam Gopnik’s, The Assassination of J.F.K., Fifty Years Later in The New Yorker.

“The notion that the Cold War national-security state, which Eisenhower warned against, might have decided to kill the President is not as difficult to credit as one wishes.
