Top 5 JFK Facts stories: the GIF that keeps giving

This week’s most popular JFK Facts stories confirm some enduring truths:

Robert Harris Zapruder GIF

Robert Harris’ annotated GIF

People love visuals. Robert Harris’s analysis of the Zapruder film–and the nifty animated GIF that illustrated it–was the best-read JFK Facts story of the week.

People love debunking. Two stories that charted last week about the bogus “Secret Service man did it” theory (and Malcolm Gladwell’s inexplicable endorsement of it)  remained popular this week.

JFK Facts readers not only love to argue. They love to argue about arguing. Hence the popularity of a post about our comment policy.

And, I don’t need to say it: Gail Raven tells a good story about her admirer, Jack Ruby.

Readers favorites for the week of May 15-22:

1) JFK GIF explains: could Oswald have fired all the shots? (May 18, 2014)

2) George Hickey

3) Ex-flame says Ruby ‘had no choice’ but to kill Oswald (March, 20, 2013)

4) Gladwell’s folly: Did a Secret Service man shoot JFK? (February 5, 2014)

5) Keep those comments coming (just not all at once) (May 16, 2014)

  1. I am just a li’l guy here. They do not just drop everything and post my email about my decision to close my JFK Forum because of the perceived lack of civility of forum posters, or to shave off half of my “time out” period of what I post on this forum because of my emailed protests coupled with Jean’s lobbying on this site.

    I can post elsewhere, and so I will. Enough is enough.

    Some parting info for researchers, the reason very little is known about some ersons ofinterest is because authors who fail to discover much tell us how little is known.:

    “Nancy was born June 18, 1913, in Chicago to Edward Philip Barry and Harriet Gertrude Henry.,, her husband, Henry, and brothers E. P hilip Barry and William Barry.”

    “BARRY – William Henry died in his home in Plantation on February 12, 1994….sister, Nancy Bender and brother, Phillip Barry.”

  2. Thomas Joseph says:

    Researchers like Mr. Harris that spin their interpretation of what happened on Elm Street to John Kennedy fail to impress or convince me. They weren’t there when the crime was committed nor do I have blind faith in the evidence or the people that introduced or handled it in this case that many of them appear to have. How many people that claimed to have seen a different Zapruder film (such as Greg Burnham)will it take to convince ‘blind faith’ researchers that the materials they are working with are as bogus as the Michael Jackson hologram broadcast recently on TV.

    By seeking the release of documents,Jeff is trying to answer some difficult questions. That is commendable.But he gets a simple question from me – and he avoids it. Inexplicable .
