The media became of predominant importance with FDR.(Radio)FDR had the brains to use the media. The then media was totally FDR's tool. JFK was the first in American history to be totally created and maintained by the media. In short, the first media creature in history.

One of the drugs mentioned as a tranquilizer is Stelazine which is called a major tranqilizer but which is really an antipsychotic. I seem to have read in a recent bio ofJackie that Jack was almost psychotic at times, not surprising given he was on Steroids, amphetamiines and downers. All in all the poor guy was not a hypochondriac, he was really sick. The bio of him as a kid talks about how much time he spent in the hospital being worked up for collitis, as a kid. Miserable is my guess and I think he needed the uppers and downers and testosterone just to get up in the AM
