Judging from the fatal error messages others in my household are getting, I must be one of the lucky people who have been able to log into the CBS stream of 1963 JFK assassination coverage. Here are my impressions/reactions.
12:25 pm CST: Logged in successfully, waiting for the stream to start. Others are getting error messages.
12:39 pm CST: As the World Turns...bulletin from CBS News breaks in. Then, a commercial for Nescafe. Most of us of a certain age didn't see this live..we saw it years later. We were in school, then rushed home.
Riveted to this coverage. Just watching it, even 50 years later, is making my heart race.
The early reports out of Dallas--very sketchy and often inaccurate--remind me that even with today's 24 hour news coverage, first reports can be very misleading. Example:
Cronkite is reporting that Dallas police were seen racing to a grassy knoll where a man and woman were crouching on the ground--observers wondering if they are the shooters.
Cronkite also reports that shots may have come from a 2nd story window, and that someone saw a "colored" man in a window of the Texas Book Depository.
