Remembering JFK

This month is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. NBC news has brought out some extraordinary archival footage of Kennedy on Meet The Press during his presidential campaign in 1960. Bryan Williams featured Kennedy's most memorable speeches, from civil rights to peace on Earth. The NBC website also features this remarkable interactive page with interviews from various people, including former President Clinton, Jane Fonda and Oliver Stone, reflecting on JFK. Meanwhile, over in looney, right-wing media world, historians have publicly criticized the right-wing media for their attempt at trying to revise history and erroneously paint Kennedy as a conservative.
