Fake news in the old days.

JFK & the press. I remember at the time we used to hear terrible things about Kennedy:

* He had zipper issues that sometimes became national security issues.

* He didn’t write the book he got the Pulitzer Prize for.

* The missile gap that got him so many votes was a deliberate lie.

* His father, who had been an appeaser if not an actual Nazi sympathizer, bought him enough votes to beat Humphrey in the primaries.

* He was so sick that he wouldn’t have made it through two terms even if he hadn’t visited Dallas.

They were all true.
