If you thought you knew everything interesting to know about the Kennedy assassination, then think again. Breaking the News is the definitive story of the assassination and its aftermath.
  • Eager to appear on top of the JFK story, which Dallas newspaper fooled its readers with a bogus interview with J. Edgar Hoover?
  • How did defense attorney Melvin Belli concoct the famous epilepsy defense for Jack Ruby?
  • Why didn't the FBI tell the Dallas police that Lee Harvey Oswald worked in a building directly in the path of JFK's motorcade?
  • What was New Orleans DA Jim Garrison's secret code and how did his investigators bribe a witness?
The first print reporter to interview Marina Oswald and first to establish her husband's escape route, Aynesworth also uncovered Oswald's Russian diary and was involved in first reporting how the high-profile defector paid a threatening visit to the FBI office in Dallas only days before the assassination.

Breaking the News provides over 200 photographs and artifacts from Aynesworth's peronal archive, including: his notes the day of the assassination; letters from British philospher Bertrand Russell; then Congressman Gerald Ford; and the Jack Ruby family.

Author biography:
Four-time Pulitzer Prize nominee and bestselling author, including, The Only Living Witness, the definitive study of serial killer Ted Bundy that the New York Daily News called one of the "ten best true-crime books ever written." Aynesworth is the national correspondent for the Washington Times and was formerly the investigative team leader for ABC's 20/20 and a bureau chief for Newsweek.

Hugh Aynesworth knows more about this tragic story . . . than anyone I know. A splendid piece of work.

Aynesworth really cracked AP and UPI wires . . . scooped all opposition - local and national.

    A Real Old Pro

    This is one of the best journalism books ever written; the story just happens to be about one of the most important chapters in U.S. history. Nobody, repeat nobody, has ever chronicled more about an event exclusively. The conspiracy bugs won't like it, but they don't like anything objective and truthful.
