We Knew JFK

Friday, November 15, 2013


A new radio documentary titled We Knew JFK: Unheard Stories from the Kennedy Archives airs on public radio stations across the country, timed to the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination.  The documentary showcases anecdotes from people who worked with JFK and knew him personally. Bob speaks to Robert MacNeil, of MacNeil/Lehrer fame, the host and co-writer of the documentary, about JFK's nuanced relationship with journalists.



We Knew JFK: Unheard Stories from the Kennedy Archives can be heard in its entirety online, along with other voices from the archive, at WeKnewJFK.org. The program was produced and distributed in association with PRX (Public Radio Exchange), and funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

What another self-absorbed and narcissistic, baby boomer driven story about JFK. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you so much for the piece. Nick Gillespie, in your previous story, seems like a very bitter and angry man who makes a very fallacious argument and probably hated JFK.
