“Here is a bulletin from CBS News: in Dallas, Texas, three shots were fired at President Kennedy’s motorcade in downtown Dallas. The first reports say that President Kennedy has been seriously wounded by this shooting.”

Those were the first words on the tragedy that reached the American public, when CBS News anchorman Walter Cronkite broke into As the World Turns with an audio announcement over a bulletin slide, ten minutes after the three shots were fired. Minutes later, Cronkite appeared on screen from CBS’s New York newsroom to field live reports from Dallas and read news bulletins from Associated Press and CBS Radio.

Three shots were fired is a new source of information for those who want to read more on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Attractive, clearly designed articles on various subjects related to the case. The articles are composed by a new generation of researchers who are always looking for fellow writers. Interested?
