The New York Times is baffled by lucid testimony of Parkland Hospital eyewitnesses
Mainstream journalists could have interviewed the doctors decades ago. Dr. McClelland was on an endless tour telling his story to anybody who cared to listen. The total lack of coverage of legitimate questions surrounding the JFKA has been a massive failure of American journalism. But at least they’re paying attention now.
The testimony of these and other doctors and nurses present in ER 1 has been public for at least 40 years. The MSM decided long ago to vilify any reporters who sought to question the Warren Commission.
Dad--Robert N McClelland, MD-- would be 94 today. Happy heavenly birthday to this witness who determinedly spoke the facts! 👍
The truth was available for almost 60 years to anyone willing to practice real journalism. No one in the MSM was willing to do so. What's that say about our so-called free press?
"There's no news in the Truth (Pravda) and no truth in the News (Isvestia). Old Russian joke.
Someone still needs to ask Dan Rather why he lied about what he saw in the Zapruder film.
Love that this is getting light of day
There's a reason fanatical Warren Commission defender Vincent Bugliosi buried key information in his CD-ROM of Endnotes & Sources, including the section comprised of Endnotes 383-449, headed "President Kennedy's Autopsy and the Gunshot Wounds to Kennedy and Governor Connally," pages 219-290.
Evidently this documentary is a paradigm case summarizing the most basic reasons for doing that: there's every indication Bugliosi realized this was arguably the flimsiest, and most crucial, part of a case for one lone shooter causing all the wounds to Kennedy and Connally, so he selectively focuses on autopsy photographs and medical testimony that offer the least resistance to that theory.
"At the press conference, Dr. Perry, in describing the wound here [pointing to his throat], said he thought that it looked like an entrance wound," McClelland recalled.
"When he left the room, someone came up to him. Dr. Perry thought 'Maybe he was a secret service man.' And he told Dr. Perry, 'You must never, ever say that that was an entrance wound again if you know what’s good for you.'"
IIRC, Perry was so shaken that he basically fled Texas in fear for his life. He remarked that if they killed a president, they wouldn't think twice about killing a doctor.
What kind of government threatens witnesses, doctors no less? A government of, by, and for the people, or an authoritarian regime?
Same here -- I spent 20 years teaching rhetoric and argument and the ‘pro Oswald only’ camp is built around every type of absolute, unbacked claims, and logical fallacy !!!
