Hugh Aynesworth, four-time Pulitzer Prize nominee, was the only reporter to witness the assassination of President Kennedy, the arrest of Lee Harvey Oswald, and the murder of Oswald. Famous among his fellow investigative journalists, he now breaks new stories in the book reporters have asked him to release for decades.

If you thought you knew everything interesting to know about the Kennedy assassination, then think again. Breaking the News is the definitive story of the assassination and its aftermath.

- Eager to appear on top of the JFK sotry, which DAllas newspaper fooled its readers with a bogus interview with J. Edgar Hoover? - How did defense attorney Melvin Belli concoct the famous epilepsy defense for Jack Ruby? - Why didn't the FBI tell the Dallas police that Lee Harvey Oswald worked in a building directly in the path of JFK's motorcade? - What was New Orleans DA Jim Garrison's secret code and how did his investigators bribe a witness?

The first print reporter to interview Marina Oswald and first to establish her husband's escape route, Aynesworth also uncovered Oswald's Russian diary and was involved in first reporting how the high-profile defector paid a threatening visit to the FBI office in Dallas only days before the assassination.

Breaking the News provides over 200 photographs and artifacts from Aynesworth's peronal archive, including: his notes the day of the assassination, letters from British philospher Bertrand Russell, then Congressman Gerald Ford, and the Jack Ruby family.

Hugh Aynesworth's "JFK: Breaking the News" is a fascinating eyewitness account to almost all of the principal events of the Kennedy assassination and its Dallas aftermath. While journalistic and easily readable, it also includes a first-person account of what it was like to cover the story as a reporter plus the intuitions and feelings a reporter often has about a story that don't explicitly make their way into the newspaper accounts. As a newspaper reporter myself, I feel I have a great model to which I can aspire in Mr. Aynesworth. Kudos.

Aynesworth tells us what it was like to be a young reporter covering the biggest story of his life. There are more comprehensive books on the JFK assassination, but Breaking the News is a great read and provides a crucial birds eye view of the events of Novemeber 1963. It is also an interesting look at how reporters did their work in the "old days" when typewriters and shoe leather were the reigning technologies.

First hand account of the Kennedy assassination by a reporter in Dallas that weekend.
Good timeline and it's well laid out.

Good to start with but i found towards the end it became conspiracy bashing.After all that has been found out about certain people in high places you would expect a newspaperman to err on the side of caution

The idea that Aynesworth is the most knowledgeable person on the JFK assassination is laughable and sad. In 1979 he told a reporter from Dallas PBS affiliate KERA: "I'm not saying there wasn't a conspiracy...I just refuse to accept it and that's my life's work."

Researcher Shirley Martin wrote in a 1967 letter: "In the summer of '64, I had a long talk with Mr. Aynesworth, introducing myself to him as a friend of a relative to General Clyde Watts, ex-Major General Edwin A. Walker's close friend and attorney (Oxford). Mr. Aynesworth mistakenly assumed that I was a political conservative and immediately deluged me with disgusting anti-Kennedy stories. ("Kennedy needed a trip to Dallas like a hole in the head," etc.) At the same time Mr. Aynesworth heaped what seemed to me to be inordinate praise on the city of Dallas, the Dallas police (Lt. George Butler, Captain Fritz, Chief Curry, etc.), and the Dallas Morning News (for which newspaper Aynesworth was working at the time). He confided, too, that Tom Buchanan (Paris) was a "fairy" and detailed for me a number of extremely slanderous alleged incidents in the life of Mark Lane. In addition, Mr. Aynesworth definitively labeiled Mr. Lane a "communist." ... In addition, Aynesworth boasted that a Commission attorney had already confided to him (in July) what the Commission verdict was to be (in September). Oswald would be named, but according to Aynesworth it was in reality "...a communist plot. Warren will do a cover-up for Moscow." Aynesworth insisted that Marina had had an affair with him after the assassination, and that during this period she had revealed to him that she and Ruth Paine had shared a Lesbian relationship prior to November 22, 1963. Aynesworth also declared that he had been on 10th Street "looking down on the Tippit murder scene at 1:05pm, not later than 1:10..." on November 22nd." (This would be remarkable, since the Warren Commission placed the time of the murder several minutes later).

Jim DiEugenio wrote: "He has maintained that on November 22, 1963 he was in Dealey Plaza and a witness to the assassination --- although there is no photograph that reveals such. At times, he has also maintained he was at the scene where Tippit was shot --- although it is difficult to locate a time for his being there. He has also stated that he was at the Texas Theater where Oswald was arrested --- although, again, no film or photo attests to this. Further, he has written that he was in the basement of the Dallas Police Department when Oswald was killed by Jack Ruby. Like Priscilla Johnson, Aynesworth soon decided to make his career out of this event... With the work of the Assassination Records Review Board, many more pages of documents have been released showing how tightly bound Aynesworth was with the intelligence community. It has been demonstrated that Aynesworth was - at the minimum - working with the Dallas Police, Shaw's defense team, and the FBI. He was also an informant to the White House, and had once applied for work with the CIA. As I have noted elsewhere, in the annals of this case, I can think of no reporter who had such extensive contacts with those trying to cover up the facts in the JFK case. And only two come close: Edward Epstein and Gerald Posner."

This is not just another JFK book. The author doesn't offer any conspiracy theories or apologies for investigations less than perfect. But what IS here is the most comprehensive book ever written about the people involved...from the Oswalds to the Rubys, the Warren Commission members, the cops, the Dallas kooks and the charlatans who have made a living out of fooling a saddened world.
This book is an amazing product of a journalist who has been in the front lines for 40 years -- covering every aspect of the case. It's the most human story every told about those 40 years and an honest search for the truth.
And though I thought there could be nothing new about the JFK case, I was surprised at how much really IS told for the first time here.

This book is an emotional experience. You cannot read it without finding yourself back there in 1963 hearing about the shooting, re-living the cascade of events that followed. Hugh Aynesworth's and Stephen Michaud's direct reportorial style creates immediacy. Reading their pages, I was instantly back in the library at Duke law school, forcing myself through a civil procedure case book, when a ripple swept across the big reading room. The library practically emptied over the next few minutes as everyone sought a TV. As things went from bad to worse over the next 72 hours, I remember having a hunger for hard, specific details--as though to understand exactly what was happening might stop it, reverse it, erase it. The appetite for reliable details about the tragedy, oddly, has never gone away, and this excellently substantive book answers to it. It is a worthy addition to the national canon. It will help our kids understand why Kennedy's killing still moves and grieves us all so many years later.
