C’mon, man: Another MSM list of JFK conspiracy theories.

In publisher, poet and billionaire Felix Dennis’ mag, Mental Floss, felix-dennis01to which I subscribe and generally think is a cool read, appeared an article entitled, “9 People Who Killed JFK, According to Conspiracy Theorists”.

Probably a semi-interesting read for someone who doesn’t know much about the subject. However, lists like this just help perpetuate classic stereotypes. Respected indie researchers are never included in these lists. For example, Waldron is seen as a kind of a joke in the critical community, as is Roger Stone who repeats long discredited but titillating theories, as well as Menninger, whose “theories” are easily refuted, i.e. the many photographs and films taken in Dealey Plaza that day. I’ve been researching the researchers now for 13 years and have never heard of Pecepa, Ghent or Nolan, and have certainly never seen them at any of the conferences I’ve filmed over the years. Aliens and Joe DiMaggio? C’mon, man, no need to be an asshole.
