In Association with

The JFK 100

One Hundred Errors of Fact and Judgment
in Oliver Stone's JFK

by Dave Reitzes



JFK, Oliver Stone's controversial movie on the murder of President John F. Kennedy, championed the assassination probe of New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, and accused elements of the federal government of conspiracy in JFK's death.

But whether one believes that a conspiracy took the President's life or not, how trustworthy and accurate is the information presented in Stone's film?
