Radio Essay: Our Old-Media View Of J.F.K

We've come to know President John F. Kennedy through a very narrow lens, that of so-called "old media." From vintage newspapers and television reporting that maintained now-anachronistic reverence for the private lives of our leaders to the oft-analyzed Zapruder film, our contemporary relationship with J.F.K. is limited by the time in which he lived. 

There would be much more to take in had J.F.K. been President in our current era of social media and citizen journalism ...but would be better off if we really saw the man in full?

Here's our reflection on that, and more.
