Vincent Bugliosi, JFK conspiracy skeptic, dies at 80

reclaiming historyVincent Bugliosi, former prosecutor, best-selling author, and prolific skeptic of JFK conspiracy theories, has died.

My dealings with the man were always cordial, though not productive. I read as much of his mammoth Reclaiming History as I could. I came away agreeing with him that there were many implausible JFK conspiracy theories out there–in addition to the also-implausible anti-conspiracy theory that he advocated.

And that was what was problematic about Bugiliosi’s intellectual approach to the JFK story. The idea that you could get at the truth about JFK’s death by refuting every false theory strikes me as very odd. A historian would never write  a book about the causes of World War II by trying to refute every interpretation but his or her own. Why would you address the JFK story in such a backhanded way?

If Oswald shot JFK, here’s when he decided to do it

The responses to my last question, “When did Lee Harvey Oswald decide to shoot President Kennedy?” have converged on a consensus: November 19, 1963. Read more

‘Reclaiming Parkland’: the story behind the flop

Reclaiming ParklandDespite a big budget and a host of A-list actors, Tom Hanks’s JFK flick “Parkland” proved to be a dud,  As I wrote here last year, “The fact that the movie tanked at the box office and puzzled critics indicated its presentation of JFK’s murder as a fairly ordinary homicide in Texas had no resonance, even with elite media organizations imbued with a cultural affinity for the lone gunman theory.

But the story of the forces behind the making of the movie, explored in James DiEugenio’s book “Reclaiming Parkland,” is an in-depth tale of the collusive culture-making machinery of Hollywood and major news organizations.

From DiEugenio’s website, Citizens for Truth About the Kennedy Assassination:

What’s the best single book about JFK’s assassination?

Anthony Summers Not in Your LIfetime

Updated with new reporting

I recommend Anthony Summers “Not in Your  Lifetime,” which has been updated and reissued this week. I think it is the best  single introduction to the JFK assassination story.


Summers is a veteran journalist and accomplished biographer whose work has appeared in BBC and Vanity Fair and other publications with high editorial standards and big audiences. He combines story telling skills with a relentless focus on sifting the evidence, eliminating the dubious, and identifying what is new and important.

Three reasons why the JFK conspiracy debate helps the CIA

A reporter recently emailed to ask me to comment on the JFK conspiracy debate on the 50th anniversary. I declined with the following observations:

Efron to play doctor who saw JFK’s disputed throat wound

Zac Efron

Zac Efron MD

In reporting on Zac Efron’s upcoming role in Tom Hank’s upcoming JFK movie Politico says, “No word on whom Efron will play.”

Not true. According to multiple Hollywood sources, Efron is slated to play Dr. Charles Carrico, a 28-year old resident surgeon who was the first doctor to examine JFK when he was brought to the hospital.

The movie, called Parkland, promises a dramatic and controversial role for the rising young star because Carrico’s cameo in history landed him in  the heart of the debate about the nature of JFK’s wounds.

Since the Parkland screenplay is based on Vince Bugliosi’s book “Reclaiming History,” which makes mistakes about the evidence on some key points, it is worth asking, What are the facts?

Can Zac Efron save the Warren Commission?

Hollywood heartthrob Zac Efron has joined the cast of Tom Hanks’ forthcoming JFK flick, Parkland, along with fellow A-listers Paul Giamatti and Billy Bob Thornton.

Student of the Warren Commission?

With its all-star cast and reassuring agenda, Parkland is shaping up as the feel-good event of 2013 for those who don’t want you to worry about the legacy of the American national security state. Pre-production publicity makes clear that Parkland (the hospital where JFK was declared dead) aims to breath new life into the government’s old theory that the violent removal of the liberal president from office in 1963 was a meaningless deed committed for no reason by a lunatic. Matinee message: eat your popcorn and swallow the “tragic absurdity of life.”

Is this a movie anyone really wants to see?

Tom Hanks and the politics of reassurance

Tom Hanks’ take on the JFK story is advancing. The actor/producer’s feature film, Parkland, about the events of November 22, 1963, has signed on A-list actors, Billy Bob Thornton, Paul Giamatti, and Jackie Weaver. The producers say the talented thespians will bring VIncent Bugliosi’s 2007 book, “Reclaiming History” to life. That will be a challenge.

Bugliosi’s tome is a flabby 1,600 page doorstop of polemic that managed to Read more
