The History Channel Says No to JFK Doc

Posted: Updated:

The History Channel chose to live up to their name today, by refusing to air a propaganda miniseries about President Kennedy, staring Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes.

Brave New Films has been in the fight to stop this series since before it went into production. The series was nothing but a political attack through character assassination, and today the History Channel did the right thing by refusing to air the finished product.

Brave New Films received an early copy of the script and shared it with leading historians, including Ted Sorensen and Thurston Clarke, who charged the miniseries with being blatant distortions of the truth.

This victory proves that democracy requires history be vigorously defended from revisionism. Those who write the history of our country cannot do so without the eyes of truth tellers upon them. Today the truth in history won out.
