"On April 8, 2009, Alec Baldwin at Huffington Post, wrote a column decrying the financial problems of the New York Times and saying that it would be a real loss if somehow the Times would have to curtail publication to an online edition. On Len Osanic's Black Op Radio, I took issue with this and said the opposite: When the Times, Washington Post, and LA Times all finally fell, listeners should visit the empty buildings and spit on them. My reasoning being that on the serious issues of the day, the scandals, the murders, and wars that make up modern American history – the JFK assassination, Vietnam, the King murder, the killing of Robert Kennedy, the CIA and drugs, Iran-Contra, Watergate, the phony Clinton scandals (e.g. Whitewater), the elections heists of 2000 and 2004, and the phony run-up to the Iraq War – those papers have not just been wrong, but they have been misleading. And in many cases they have been deliberately so. And it is those issues that have helped form the current reality of American life. Which, in comparative terms, if you were around in the sixties, is pretty bad.
This leaves the obvious question to Mr. Baldwin: Why then Alec, should we lament their current problems and their possible diminution and cessation? How have they served the American public well since 1963? I would argue the opposite. Since they have served us so poorly, we should actually look forward to the day we are free of them. The only problem being that, as I wrote about elsewhere, what is waiting in the wings isn't a heck of a lot better. And this includes the outlet where Baldwin's piece appeared."
WHO IS MORE RELIABLE ON THE JFK ASSASSINATION: PRAVDA, THE AMERICAN MEDIA OR THE KENNEDY FAMILY?
Which brings me to this question: who is a more reliable as a source for truth in the JFK assassination - Soviet party papers such as Pravda from the 1960's and Pravda in 2007 ... or The New York Times, Wash Post, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CNN, MSNBC? Which news sources are more reliable for truth on the JFK assassination? Or even the Kennedy family?
Let's put it this way, the American MSM for the past 48 years has been much less reliable for JFK truth than say, 1950's Soviet Stalinist propaganda would have been.
I should add in the Kennedy family as well, as they played along with the Big Lie in a public fashion from the beginning:
Robert Kennedy: "As I said in Poland last summer, I am convinced Oswald was solely responsible for what happened and that he did not have any outside help or assistance. He was a malcontent who could not get along here or in the Soviet Union."
In 1963-64, the controlled Soviet press was saying "Texas oil barons played a fatal role" in the JFK assassination. Go to the 5th paragraph: http://news.google.c...ssination&hl=en
In 2007, here is Pravda http://jfkfiles.blog...t-kennedy.html:
"Many experts on America believe that the conspiracy in Dallas was organized by a group of billionaires from Texas with Harold Hunt at head. The man was considered the world’s richest man of that time. The Texas businessman took an active part in the political life of America; he nominated Texas senator Lyndon Johnson for presidential election in 1960. The first attempt to promote Johnson was a failure, but Hunt finished the game in Dallas as a result of which Kennedy was killed and his candidate came to the White House."
Dale Meyers: "Why is this all so compromising for President Bush? According to Pravda, the inertness in the investigation of the crime is due to the fact that both George H.W. Bush and his son George W. Bush "are oilmen belonging to the same group" of Texas oligarchs who whacked Kennedy. No mention is made of the Warren Commission and the House Select Committee on Assassinations which investigated the killing in 1964 and 1977-78."
Let's just say I agree with Pravda. I do think H.L. Hunt and Lyndon Johnson played big roles in the JFK assassination. It is very possible that George Herbert Walker Bush played a big role as well. The best recaps of GHW Bush's possible role in the JFK assassination are in Family of Secrets by Russ Baker and the essay "Did the Bushes help to kill JFK" by Wim Dankbaar over at JFKMurdersolved.
An interesting note: George W. Bush, the son of GHW Bush, appointed Ray Lee Hunt (the son of oil baron H.L. Hunt - a key supporter of Lyndon Johnson) to the plum position of a member of the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. In my opinion, the fathers of GWB and Ray Lee Hunt were both key players in the JFK assassination. CIA George Herbert Walker Bush was also friends with Lyndon Johnson.
In a nutshell, I think that Soviet propaganda organs such as Pravda have been a much more reliable source for accurate information on the JFK assassination than the American media or the Kennedy family (publicly).
