Since at least the early 1960s television and major news media have been the primary platforms upon which the American public learns about and interprets its world. Indeed, journalism is the first blueprint of history. Yet to what degree have our news and history been censored? And how much of recent history is the product of propaganda, spin, and perhaps even the machinations of the US government.
Our guest on this fiftieth episode of Real Politik is Donald Jeffries. He is the author of Hidden History: An Exposé of Modern Crimes, Conspiracies, and Cover-ups in American Politics (Skyhorse Publishing, 2014). Jeffries has been researching the JFK assassination since the mid-1970s when he was a student volunteer on Mark Lane’s Citizens Committee of Inquiry.
