Edward Wyatt on the JFK Murder – the Next Judith Miller? The Media Credibility Vacuum is Aggravated by “Fake News” Writers
By Alex Constantine
Exposing a Media Charlatan in Two Easy Steps:
1) “Mainstream” reporter Edward Wyatt’s article in the NY Times lauding Vince Bugliosi’s dubious tome purporting to “prove” that Lee Harvey Oswald murdered John Kennedy. There is no evidence that Oswald ever fired a shot, but Bugliosi’s “thorough,” “exhaustive,” (highly-manipulative) “forensic examination” is intended to persuade us otherwise, and Ed Wyatt believes every word of this new “Case Closed” (the book with this title has been completely discredited by Internet researchers, of course, so the CIA is trying once again to convince us that Oswald did it via this “trusted prosecutor”).
2) Wyatt is exposed as a “fake news” reporter. A recent article on Mr. Wyatt reveals an INABILITY TO GET EVEN SIMPLE FACTS STRAIGHT, and a penchant for INVENTING FACTS in support of false conclusions. Wyatt’s reporting on the television industry is riddled with invented facts because he was either too lazy or too corrupt – both, probably – to actually collect factual information and report it.
We find that Wyatt, who moved to California last year, is “dying in Los Angeles” – due to his reportage proving to be FICTIONAL.
Why is the media no longer trusted? Because they lie to us every day. Fake news is staple – particularly when it concerns the intelligence underground’s covert operations (eg. the murder of Kennedy) – the reason America is at war, worships celebrities, eats aspartame … believes it isn’t a belligerent, fascistic country.
It is reporters with no respect for the truth, who are are bought or clueless, who run the media show – and completely foul up our lives with false information.

LOS ANGELES – The prosecutor who put Charles Manson behind bars now wants to solve another crime – a really simple one, he insists. So simple that it takes only 1,612 pages to prove his case.
Vincent Bugliosi, whose prosecution of Manson in 1970 led him to write one of the bestselling true-crime books of all time, “Helter Skelter,” now has turned his attention to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
And that is his full attention: 20 years of research, more than 1 million words, hundreds of interviews, thousands of documents and more than 10,000 citations. The result is “Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy” (W.W. Norton). His conclusion: Lee Harvey Oswald killed Kennedy, and acted alone.
Why would such a simple conclusion require so much argument?
“Because of the unceasing and fanatical obsession of thousands of researchers over the last 43 years, from around the world but mostly in the United States,” Bugliosi said in an interview at the cafe of the Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel in Studio City. “Examining under a high-powered microscope every comma, every period, every detail on every conceivable issue, and making hundreds and hundreds of allegations, they have transformed this simple case into its present form.”
2.) Beyond Spin – Edward Wyatt, now at the LA Times, is a “Fake News” Reporter
L.A. VS. NEW YORK
Who’s Winning The Battle Of Hollywood?
The Wall Street Journal’s Brooks Barnes has just been seduced by the New York Times, it’ll be announced soon— and also by Los Angeles. From out there, he’ll cover the film industry for the New York Times’s Biz section. This will be much-needed reinforcement in the paper’s battle with the LA Times—for years, New York was gaining an upper hand. But recently, things have not gone well for our hometown paper on that other coast. For one thing, arts and television reporter Edward Wyatt has been dying in Los Angeles.
His most recent television articles—a piece on May 27 on the Fox sitcom ‘Til Death, a story about Bob Barker’s TV specials on May 15—were merely forgettable, but some of his pieces are eyebrow-raising for their cluelessness.
Before moving to Los Angeles last year to be with his wife, Jennifer Steinhauer, the head of the Times’ Los Angeles bureau, Wyatt covered publishing from New York, and without particular distinction.
On Saturday, April 28, the New York Times ran an article, “Well-Known Secret: ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Spinoff for ABC,” by Wyatt. In the article about Grey’s Anatomy, Wyatt wrote, “Like a doting parent trying to hide a child’s Christmas bike under the bed, ABC has been pretending to hope that no one notices what could be its biggest winner in next fall’s television season, a spinoff of its hit nighttime soap opera ‘Grey’s Anatomy… Despite the buzz being generated by a potential spinoff of its highest-rated scripted show, executives at the ABC network and its television studio have refused to talk publicly about the new venture.”
The next day, Sunday, April 29, the front page of the Los Angeles Times’ Calendar section was devoted to the Grey’s Anatomy spinoff. It featured quotes from, among others, ABC’s entertainment president, Stephen McPherson, and Shonda Rhimes, the creator of the series.
And in a piece of Wyatt’s about Lost on May 8, he wrote, “ABC declined to make its executives and the show’s creators available for interviews.” But the LAT managed to get both of the show’s executive producers, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, to give quotes in the article by Maria Elena Fernandez that ran the same day.
“He doesn’t have a tremendous number of contacts,” said one L.A. executive in the industry of Wyatt. “I don’t look at that as a failing on his part! It takes awhile to develop those relationships.” Wyatt appears to have written his first story on his new beat in March, 2006 (“Smithsonian-Showtime Deal Raises Concerns”), though people out west had the perception that he had been on the beat for a much shorter time.
“Ask me in three months what I think of him, and I’ll be able to give you a better answer,” this executive said.
