Today is the 55th anniversary of the assassination in Dallas of President John F. Kennedy. If you’ve never seen the network footage of the coverage, here is the first hour or so from NBC that day. The lead anchors are Chet Huntley and Frank McGee. Not how primitive things are compared today, from the technical issues of trying to talk on the phone to a reporter, who was on a payphone in the lobby of Parkland Hospital, to the microphones and other equipment that were state-of-the-art back then.
Dave von Pein has the entire broadcast from all three networks uploaded to his JFK channel. His whole channel is worth watching.
