The press proected JFK from all rumor,innuendo,and,most importantly,facts.He slept with Judy Exner in the WH.She was the babe of Sam Giancana. The spy you’re referring to was the Easr German agent. Hoover knew it, LBJ knew it.the press knew it,and no one was going to go public.All of the beltway,though there was no beltway in 63, had too many skeletons taking up space in the closet,and that included the press. No one was outing JFK’s affairs.
What would have happened to Kennedy, and thus the Democrat Party, if the press had jumped on the story of his affair with a communist agent? How would that have compared to say, the press coverage of Watergate? Would it have destroyed the Democrat Party? Would the Democrats let their party be destroyed? What state was LBJ from? Where was JFK killed? Too many coincidences.
