Parallax Views w/ J.G. Michael

The JFK Assassination: On the Trail of Delusion? w/ Fred Litwin

May 4, 2021


On this edition of Parallax Views, when I started this program I never considered doing an episode on the JFK assassination. That's because it's just a too much of a quagmire for me. I don't know enough about the assassination to really get into all the debates about Lee Harvey Oswald, Jim Garrison, whether there was a conspiracy or not, etc. But, I recently had Fred Litwin, a critic of those whom believe the assassination was the result of a conspiracy, contact me in the hopes of appearing on my program to discuss his book On the Trail of Delusion: Jim Garrison: The Great Accuser. I decided to oblige. I originally had wanted to do a debate, but that fell through. So instead I offer two interviews with very different perspective on the assassination. Fred Litwin offers the views that the assassination was not a conspiracy theory and specifically that New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison was a paranoid populist who targeted an innocent man in his pursuit of Clay Shaw.
