Thread: JFK vs the Liberal Blogosphere

  1. Default JFK vs the Liberal Blogosphere

    About ten years ago I faced off with Jane Hamsher and Firedoglake on the issue of who was JFK.

    This time its Truthdig and a guy named Paul Street. These people never learn. But as many times as I have to do , I will. This article was a disgrace.

    Jim, well done. I have read many of Street's essays on Counterpunch and have been amazed by the disinformation he spreads about JFK, particularly in the foreign policy area. He's hardly the only offender over there though. There's another guy named St. Clair that's just as bad. Not only that I often read comments on "liberal" blogs that disparage Kennedy using the same disinformation that Street uses. Its a real echo chamber that has no effective counterweight.

    I understand why you disengaged from the "liberal" blogs and I'm surely not one to tell you how you should spend your time but do you think it would be worth submitting the essay you just wrote to Truth Out and Counterpunch? I don't know how many of the regular readers of those blogs read Kennedys and King but I suspect that its not many. You're the best equipped to counter the dogmatic attacks on JFK by the doctrinaire leftists who haven't bothered to do the scholarship on JFK and RFK that you have and seem to be informed only by Noam Chomsky's view of the Kennedys.

    Thanks Phil.

    I have actually never though of that because I would naturally think it would not happen.
