History Channel Losing Credibility with JFK Attack Film

Is there no level that the right wing will not stoop? Even some non-Kennedy supporters are appalled at what the History Channel is considering airing.  This is the History Channel, not Lifetime. It's supposed to be based in facts, not innuendo.  In case you missed it, on Sunday, filmmaker Robert Greenwald appeared on CNN's "Reliable Sources" to discuss his campaign against a proposed TV miniseries about the Kennedys, slated to appear on aforementioned History Channel.  The series is being produced by Joel Surnow, the creator of "24" and a supporter of George Bush, who Greenwald says "deliberately distorts historical fact" in order to smear the Kennedy family. "I don't care what your politics are," Greenwald says. "This is a below-the-belt trashing of a president of the United States -- not on policy, but character assassination." 

The script for the upcoming "The Kennedys" miniseries on The History Channel is right-wing character assassination, not "history." David Talbot, author of "Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years" refutes liberties taken with his book.

Tell the History Channel this belongs in The National Inquirer
