Here's the documentary in question:

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/tech/cold-case-jfk.html

These are the two most crucial scientific studies:

Dealey Plaza:


National Archives, College Park, MD and Boston:


Issues:

(1) David Koch is the leader sponsor of NOVA, that fact is not under
discussion.

(2) The Koch brothers have appointed themselves as the guardians of their
cause. Good for them.

(3) Regardless of whether Lee acted alone (LN) or there was a conspiracy
(CT):

(3a) The Kochs' cause would be severely hurt if the public has a
perception that the crime was a result of a Far Right conspiracy.

(3b) The Koch's cause would be immensely relieved, benefited if the public
has a perception that the tragedy was the sole act of a malcontent
LEFTIST.

Question: If you were an executive at PBS NOVA (*), would you have the
independence of criteria, the intellectual honesty to propose a program of
such nature, on the crucial date of the 50th. Anniversary, WITHOUT
allowing your main sponsor to issue an opinion? Would you bite the hand
that feeds you?

(*) Speaking of PBS NOVA staff, I was informed last week that the
executive in charge of the program is on vacation, will be back tomorrow,
hopefully providing an answer to the Big Question JFK Numbers keep on
asking: "Who has the laser data? Who owns it?"

The PBS Nova Administrative Assistants, Angelica (and Christine before
her) have been very kind. The PBS Public Editor has been unresponsive.

The Ombudsman (who offered to take action) seems to be gone:

Does everyone understand that they are the John Birch Society?

What if the public thought the John Birch Society did it?
