Seymour Hersh apparently never read it. And in fact, as Robert
Sam Anson relates in the November 1997 Vanity Fair, Hersh never

1993, a friend at ABC proposed an investigative segment for the
network on the 30th anniversary of the murder. Apparently, the
idea fell through. But by that time, Hersh had hooked up with an
old pal, Michael Ewing. Hersh then decided that a book on the
Kennedys-not necessarily the assassination- would bring him the
big money that he craved. Through big-time talent agency ICM, the
project was sold to Little, Brown for the Bob Woodward type of

brought into the House Select Committee by Bob Blakey after Dick
Sprague was forced out. Ewing has never complained in public
about the failures of that inquest. There is a reason for this:
he is a Blakey acolyte. Blakey liked him so much that he gave him
a key assignment in 1978: close down the New Orleans
investigation. The HSCA had found too much corroborating evidence
supporting Jim Garrison's allegations about certain people

included David Ferrie and Clay Shaw. He also said that Shaw knew
Ruby. He then passed a polygraph with flying colors. That was
