  1. I'd also like to put in a plug for an interview I did with Doug a while back, "Douglas Caddy: Eyewitness to Watergate." As the title says, we focused mainly on Watergate, but I still listen to this one and find it fascinating. Thanks, Doug. https://midnightwriternews.com/mwn-episode-084-douglas-caddy-eyewitness-to-watergate/
  2. I think Don Jeffries had some very compelling takes on Chappaquiddick. It's worth a listen. https://midnightwriternews.com/mwn-episode-083-donald-jeffries-on-ted-kennedy-and-chappaquiddick/
  3. I couldn't agree more, Denny, and I say it often to those who will listen. As a former high school teacher, I can tell you that the interest in the JFK assassination is little-to-none beyond "So, who do you think did it? was it the mob or the CIA or what?" That was the typical question I fielded, and that was the extent of my students' interest. Mind you, I also had high-level Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate students in History, too. If any of the HS kids would have been interested, they would have. All that said, they had immense interest in "the 9/11 conspiracies," as I'll
  4. Thanks for the response, Paul. I'm not sure if it's too intellectually demanding. I just think it's a huge case with many shady characters hiding halfway into the shadows. It's not a difficult case because people aren't smart enough to grasp it. It's a difficult case because it's a difficult case. As I said, I also think there is this desire for every fact we find to fit neatly into our own predetermined narrative, like the perfect piece of a puzzle. Quite often, they just don't fit. That doesn't mean the big picture changes. It means that this is a difficult case with a large cast, a lot of a
  5. I will add that Randy Benson's answer in the article (regarding why he has no LN theorists in The Searchers) is my answer when I'm asked why I don't have them on my show: "You've got the entirety of the mainstream media who will have you on and will promote you and/or your views ad nauseum. I'll pass and let you seek them." And yes, Quillette's JFK assassination articles all seem to be LN-ish. Colgan scold-questions Randy about not being open to LNers, but he has no problem with Quillette not being more open to both sides? Or the NY Times.... or NBC... or The Nation.... or Random House.... or.
  6. A quick search didn't find this posted here before, but if it has been, I apologize. This was at the bottom of Posner's review of Litwin. It's from 2017, so not new. I have a lot of issues with this one, mainly with the premise that the public popularity (acceptance?) of a theory makes it more right or more wrong. https://quillette.com/2017/11/25/jfk-conspiracies-slowly-dying/
  7. Those who would like to hear Doug explain it for three hours and 26 minutes, it's here: https://midnightwriternews.com/mwn-episode-107-douglas-horne-on-the-zapruder-film-alteration-debate/ You have to scroll down past the pictures, but take a look at them first.
  8. I wonder what Leo Ryan thought... do we have any quotes or papers stating his view? You know, this would be a good book for someone to do... a Quotes for Conspiracy or something... some kind of large-scale gathering of quotes about the case from other politicians, celebs, etc.
  9. Didn't Sorenson and Salinger also highly suggest conspiracy? They're certainly not tin foil hat types.
  10. Mal Hyman was published under Trine Day, and that's a fine work. The Franklin Scandal by Nick Bryant is valuable. Whitney Webb's newest book, her only book, is Trine Day. Bullyocracy by Donald Jeffries is the best work Ive seen of its kind. Of course Palamara's work is worthy - the books on the Secret Service in my view. Doug Caddy's book is one I enjoyed thoroughly. Daniel Estulin is a good read, even if you aren't with him on everything. Whatever you think of Phil Nelson (I know opinions here differ), his book on the USS Liberty attack is solid. New Wo
  11. It was never on the roster, Steve (and "everyone here"). Rob offered me the show and I passed. As I said, I'm not really trying to give the mainstream more coverage. Rob is a great host. He hosts or co-hosts two of the best podcasts around. He's kind enough to do a quarterly guest host spot on MWN. He offered me the Litwin episode, I passed, and he gave MWN another one instead. I explained the reasons above. I assure you that it was never on the roster at all. Rob can attest to this. I like to give time to the alternatives. I respect everyone's right to a belief, whether I agree or not, but I
  12. Thank you for acknowledging that, Steve. I have never pulled an interview from the website. Once it's posted, it's there. I had one guest who shall remain nameless who was incredibly rude to me off-air. I still have their episode posted. I don't have a personal vendetta against the "Oswald-Acted-Alone" people, though I believe they are wrong. I just usually don't have them on the show because it seems like they have the entire mainstream media as their outlet already. I can't see conceding the independent/alternative media to them also. I also haven't had anyone on who believes John Dean is th
