Oliver Stone Admits "JFK Revisited" is a Flop
Oliver Stone, producer of the so-called documentary, JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass, recently sat down for an interview with Abby Martin.
Those praising Martin would do well to acquaint themselves with the entirety of her work. Before being hired by RT, Martin was a prominent voice in the 9/11 conspiracy movement, which seems to be a job qualification for RT given the amount of airtime it gives to fringe views. In a 2008 video of a 9/11 Truth Movement protest, Martin can be seen stating that the attacks were an “inside job.” She knows this, she said, because, “I’ve researched it for three years and every single thing that I uncover solidifies my belief that it was an inside job and that our government was complicit in what happened.” On her program, she regularly gives air to outrageous conspiracy theories, including the notion that water fluoridation is a pernicious government plot to poison unsuspecting American citizens, an old bugbear of the extreme right-wing John Birch Society. She has also accused Israel of using “Hitler’s methods … to maintain a Jewish majority.”
In the interview with Martin, Oliver Stone admitted that JFK Revisited has been ignored. Here is an excerpt from a transcript: (44:52)
Oliver Stone: I can't believe we haven't gotten one review from a major media, publication, of this film. One review. Editorials, but no reviews. Not one movie critic. Not one television critic. The assassination community has done tremendous amount of work. Nobody reports it. These are facts. Not made-up bullshit.
Overall, JFK Revisited has a tomato rating! Only 14 top critics reviewed the film and half of them gave the film a tomato.
A total of 23 viewers have left comments. I love this one:
When will Prensa Latina, the official news agency of Cuba, review JFK Revisited?
Oh, I forgot. They already covered it.
