FDL Movie Night: The Garrison Tapes — Exploring the JFK Assassination with John Barbour

By: Monday November 25, 2013 4:59 pm

John Barbour has led a storied life in show business as a writer and producer, and as creator of the first reality TV show Real People; he is the only person to win an Emmy for both entertainment and news, and was critic-at-large for KNBC in Los Angeles. Barbour also became close friends with Jim Garrison, the New Orleans District attorney who brought businessman Clay Shaw to trial for conspiracy in the killing of John Kennedy, and was instrumental in sounding the alarm that a conspiracy was involved in the President’s murder. In 1980 at the height of his career with Real People, Barbour interviewed Garrison for NBC news, the interview was re-edited without Barbour’s knowledge or permission making Garrison look foolish and unbalanced.

Rick Santorum spat a frothy mouthful on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, plugging his first foray into film production, The Christmas Candle, due out this holiday season. The movie, from EchoLight Studio, is a period piece set in a Thomas Kinkade-esque village and tackles modernity vs (Christian) tradition as electricity and progressive thinking threaten the town’s visit from a Christmas angel.

A Conspiracy of Dunces

By: Monday April 30, 2012 1:25 pm

It wasn’t enough that liberals had the New Black Panthers Even Blacker Black Ops Ninjas kill a perfectly-healthy-except-for-his-bad-heart Andrew Breitbart with a secret heart attack gun, we also had to kill a forensic technician, who may or may not have participated in the Big Andrew Breitbart Cover-up Autopsy, as a warning to others in the LA Coroners office to keep their fucking mouths shut if they know what’s good for them.
