What Really Happened — Nov 15, 2013
Dan Rather, at the time an unknown newscaster from a small market Texas TV station, viewed the Zapruder film, then described it to America on the CBS network. As this recording of that broadcast shows, Rather lied to all of America in claiming that the head shot pushed John F. Kennedy’s head forward.
Rather makes the claim that Kennedy’s head “rocketed forward” at 2:15 in the above video. He also makes a point of saying there were only three shots in total. Rather’s meteoric rise to network status and stardom soon followed this broadcast. When the Zapruder film was finally shown publicly, during Jim Garrison’s trial of CIA agent Clay Shaw, Rather’s lie was revealed for all to see.
