If you want the unvarnished truth of what REALLY occurred in Dallas that November weekend in 1963, as well as the astonishing true story of the assassination's aftermath, you'll find plainly-written, documented answers in Breaking The News. This is a personal, hard-hitting but even-handed treatment by the single most knowledgeable assassination expert there is, Hugh Aynesworth. Teamed once again with his old writing partner, Stephen Michaud (The Only Living Witness, etc.) Aynesworth not only sets the record straight, once and for all, (and totally vanquishes the hordes of conspiracy theorists in the process) but also unveils a long list of fascinating insider tidbits, such as the outrageous way that Melvin Belli hit on the epilepsy defense for Jack Ruby, and how Lee Harvey Oswald's widow, Mariana, briefly found comfort in the arms of another man. More significantly, he reports for the first time the FBI's lame excuse for not telling the Dallas Police Department that someone potentially dangerous as Oswald would enjoy a sniper's-eye seat to Kennedy's motorcade. It wasn't a plot, but sheer laziness and stupidity that made the assassination possible. The material on bizarre New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison alone is worth the cover price.
Historians, journalists, criminal justice experts and all other intelligent students of the assassination have been waiting decades for this book. Thank goodness that Aynesworth finally got around to writing it.
