'Killing Kennedy': Rob Lowe, Bill O'Reilly Discuss America's Continued JFK Obsession


All images are from a legacy that began to be formed, in particular by Jackie, almost immediately after the president's death.

"We know for a fact that his legacy is very carefully maintained and managed, and I don't think that is a bad thing at all," Lowe said. "That is what we would want for anybody in our family. … We would want them to be remembered in the best possible light."

Despite the hundreds of thousands of books about the assassination in the past 50 years, new nuggets of information continue to emerge, such as the recently released audio tapes from an interview Jackie Kennedy did with historian Arthur Schulessinger four months after the assassination.

It was not just what the Kennedy family wanted us to believe had been lost, but apparently, what many alive at the time wanted to believe.

"Kennedy was the ultimate figure on which we projected all of our hopes and aspirations, and that's how he designed it," Lowe said. "He was a politician and a smart one. Great one. It wasn't by accident."
