Communiqué encouraged media assets to counter notions of “political conspiracy”
Fifty years ago today Lyndon B. Johnson’s Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, otherwise known as the Warren Commission, released the well-known report of its findings. The document is of special significance given that it is still the narrative jointly upheld by the US government and mainstream media. This is the case despite the fact that the Commission’s work has been repeatedly proven as flawed, if not intentionally misleading.

The Warren Commission’s report was issued on September 24, 1964. The Last Word On The Assassination, a webcast recorded on January 31, 2014 from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, is an especially compelling document with crucial information concerning what happened to President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, and what has happened to America and the world since.

By Jim Garrison
In a country with advanced technology for news distribution, the removal of a nation’s leader by a coup d’etat will never be attempted unless those sponsoring the murder feel assured that they will have an effective degree of control over the dissemination of the news. Government control must be at a high enough level to guarantee the subsequent distribution of official news releases encouraging the belief that, however tragic the incident, it was essentially meaningless and all is well.

By James F. Tracy
The most efficient system of opinion management functions largely absent of the conscious intent or effort of intellectual governance. A society detached from its historical bearings will frequently resort to myths and falsehoods which over time form a coherent worldview resistant to unconventional perspectives. The informal priesthood beholden to such a belief system is ensconced in the officialdom of journalism and academe.
