My name is John Barbour.
Some say I am 'The Godfather Of Reality TV' because I was the creator, writer, co-host and co-producer of NBC's trendsetting hit 'Real People.'
I also won Emmys for both information and entertainment programming, won a Golden Mike award for broadcast news journalism and was fortunate enough to interview many newsmakers.Visit John Barbour's World

But most importantly, the I wrote and directed the critically acclaimed and multiple award-winning documentary 'The Garrison Tapes
In the film 'JFK' Jim Garrison is portrayed by Kevin Costner.
But in real life, ‘The Garrison Tapes’ still stands as the only film that let the heroic District Attorney for New Orleans tell his own amazing story.
The harrowing account of his investigation into the murder of Pres. John F. Kennedy is as gripping and relevant today as it was when he sat down for an exclusive and extensive one-on-one interview with yours truly.
Even more, the facts that Garrison uncovered about the horrifying crime that changed both America and the world shows exactly why we cannot accept
that no one has ever been brought to justice for JFK’s murder.
But I know first-hand why the “crime of the century” remains unsolved.
In spite of great reviews, winning the San Sebastian Film Festival and enormous success around the world, ‘The Garrison Tapes’ has been almost totally blacked out by America’s mainstream media.
In spite of the media’s efforts, the public's appetite for the truth about JFK's public execution is stronger than ever. Our retrospective of Garrison's investigation—‘The Last Word on the Assassination
’—is a top 15 documentary film on Amazon. And it got there by word of mouth alone.
Now, based on a surge of requests from people who want to know more about Garrison and how his story was suppressed, we’ve decided to make “part two” of the story.
We’re calling it 'The American Media and the Second Assassination of President John F. Kennedy.'
In the 70's the Church Committee discovered the CIA had a 1,000 assets working in American media. Documents obtained through The Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) show many of these assets were directed to discredit and destroy Jim Garrison. We also now know that Dan Rather lied straight into the camera in 1963 when he said the famed Zapruder Film showed the President's head thrusting FORWARD instead of back and to the left.
Since then it’s been all downhill. Today six major corporations own 96% of American media and the media allows our government to continually “lie us” into numerous wars. And this trail of lies leads right back to Nov. 22nd, 1963!
Part Two of 'The Garrison Tapes' will finally and fully expose them.
Your contributions to this much-needed film will help us tell the true story
about the murder of the man who tried to halt the Military-Industrial Complex's march into Vietnam. When he left office, President Eisenhower warned America
about the dangerous power of those who seek profit from war.
Now, over half a century later, help us spread the message
about the man who stood up to these forces, about the murder that changed the course of history and about the media that aided and abetted that heinous crime
so we can make a powerful, must-see film for every American and especially every student in every school in the United States.
Thomas Jefferson said: No country can have a true democracy without an informed public!'
Be a part of informing the public. Help us tell the rest of Jim Garrison's truly American story:
'The Garrison Tapes Part II: The American Media and the Second Assassination of Pres. John F. Kennedy!'
