50 Years Since JFK Assassination Retrospective: Who Ordered Press Photographers Away From JFK's Car?

Although "the press car was loaded with photographers and journalists and was supposed to follow directly behind the car carrying the President's bodyguards, which followed the Presidential limousine," according to The Texas Connection by Craig Zirbel, on November 22, 1963 in Dallas "shortly before the start of the motorcade" the press car "was deliberately bumped to a rear position for no stated reason." The same book also noted that "this resulting strange line-up change prevented professional journalists and photographers from witnessing and photographing the slaying" of President Kennedy.
