"I was on my Grandma's carpet on my tummy with my chin resting in my little hands watching TV. I watched JFK and his lovely wife in a motorcar procession. I watched in horror as the smiling man was shot. "
There's an interesting phenomenon here. People "remember" things that never happened. For instance, there's no way you could watch the assassination of JFK on television as it happened. There was no live feed TV. Collectively we remember it happening or remember seeing it happen cause we've seen it over and over on television.
Jack Ruby was shot live on television, but the cameras were in one place, stationery and plugged in to electricity. (egad, Miss Snark IS Nitwit of the day AGAIN...it was of course Lee Harvey Oswald who was shot, Jack Ruby the shooter..Miss Snark heads for the medicinal gin)
The photos we remember most from the motorcade are those from the still photographers, and if you run them in sequence they look like a movie. We've also seen the Zapruder movie but of course, that wasn't aired live on television at the time either.
Facts are tricky things and once the "docudrama" folks get images involved, what we "remember" is often times what the director didn't leave on the cutting room floor.
