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.

There are plenty of conspiracy theories floating around about the assassination of President Kennedy, and some are just as plausible as the Warren Commission’s report of a crazed gunman acting alone. We’ll be exploring these theories on November 25, when television pioneer John Barbour, who interviewed New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison about the Kennedy assassination, will be my guest on Firedoglake.com’s Movie Night with special co-host JP Sottile.

That Rick Santorum could become the GOP front-runner is really shocking to me. His lies about what John Kennedy said about religion in America’s public square completely disqualify him from the presidency, if he were not already utterly disqualified.
