Gary Mack went from a conspiracy theorist (and making no money) to a lone nut advocate (and getting a full-time job to boot). How anyone can call that fair-minded is beyond me.

There are many good articles about Mack on DiEugenio's site. There's one that critiqued one of those fake assassination shows on Discovery starring Mack.  With a straight face, shooting and editing of the program told obvious lies. Look it up if you don't believe me.

But here's one of my favorite articles on this subject:

It says a lot about Jim DiEugenio that, in all of that article, there is only one footnote, and that's to a book he wrote himself.

When I started I was a conspiracy theorist but as time went on and I learnt the evidence I realized that my initial conclusion which was based on incomplete information(conspiracy books) needed a re-evaluation.
For instance one example of my conspiracy belief was the "back and to the left" but after some research I found a bullet lacks the mass to drive anyone more than an inch or two and upon close examination of the Zapruder film @312-313 Kennedy and all the resulting matter is pushed forward. The first eyewitnesses interviewed on TV, the Newmans and Zapruder all describe what we see in the Zapruder film and finally after studying the genuine stereoscopic Autopsy photos the injuries to Kennedy's head reinforce a shot from behind.

Mack was fair minded, knowledegable, and relied upon the evidence.  My interpretation of his view is that he left open the possibility of a conspiracy (primarily because you can't disprove the negative with 100% certainty) but that there was no credible evidence to support it.

   Is your, "fair minded, Knowledgeable, and Relied upon the Evidence" appraisal Before or After his pushing of the Badgeman & his mis ID of Mumford/McKinnon?

...and when Mark Lane died we saw the exact same thing happen from the other side.

Ditto Jim Marrs, Fletcher Prouty and Jim Garrison.

Great points. For me it wasn't personal as Gary seemed to be a nice guy. It was about the evidence. The OFFICIAL evidence has never changed and it does NOT support the WC's conclusion in the least so what made him change his point of view so dramatically?

I asked him a number of times and like all people who go from a CT point of view to a LN point of view he couldn't answer. Not once did he say that it was this piece of evidence or that piece of evidence that changed my outlook.

His point of view change was not based on the evidence. That is all.

And the only one I had heard of a "million dollar" deal was Vince Bugliosi
...I think he was paid by the word

          The validity of the stolen autopsy photos currently displayed in the public arena can hardly be described as "Genuine".  "Kinkos" Groden continues cranking them out on a daily basis.

Mack wasn't a lone nut advocate; he believed up to his death that Oswald did shoot JFK but that he had help. In other words, Mack believed in a conspiracy albeit with a small or lower case "c".

Then cite the evidence that changed your mind. I have asked this of you before and you have never done it.
