When routine coverage of JFK's Dallas visit suddenly evolved into reporting a worldwide tragedy, KRLD reporters assumed the duty of reassuring a shocked nation and an anxious world. Broadcast journalism came of age in that crisis, and KRLD News earned the profession's highest honor for its on-the-scene reporting. The writers worked in support of Dan Rather and Walter Cronkite as they reported the first on-camera murder and initiated the first continuous live coverage. Reporters who were part of this watershed in broadcast journalism have had four decades to consider events that were too fast and stunning to allow emotional detachment or reflection. They have never written their account of what happened on the scene in Dallas in 1963 until this book, and no other group had quite the behind-the-scene perspectives these four shared.

Just one comment on this beneath-comment sordid mess [and would Dan Rather kindly shut up forever, that useless pile of non-newsy flotsam]: Anyone who believes this nonsense just need view the last clip of Lee Oswald alive, brought before the non-newsies by the DPD, and hear him make multiple requests for legal representation [denied, of course, so he would have no neutral third party to talk to], and his complete shock and disgust when he is told by the so-called reporters that he has been officially accused of the murder of President Kennedy!
