JFK assassination

This has been debunked many times, but it just keeps coming back. This photo is being shared with the following captions:

  • John F. Kennedy Assassination
  • Jackie Kennedy reaches for help after President JFK is shot in Dallas Texas 1963

This photo is actually from a 1977 TV re-enactment movie. Source: UPI. Please don’t share it as a real JFK assassination photograph.

Update #2

Below is another picture which is being shared as a genuine photograph of the JFK assassination.


I’m quite sure that is from a movie or TV reenactment and not an actual photograph of the assassination. However, I have not been able to find out the source. If you recognize the source of this image, please leave a comment.

Update #3

Below is a photograph often wrongly titled as “Picture taken moments before John F Kennedy was assassinated. November 22nd, 1963”

This photo by Paul Schutzer was actually taken in 1960 shortly after JFK’s acceptance of the Democratic Party endorsement for President. Source: Getty.
