Listen to Jackie Kennedy Tapes on Colbert Report

The Jackie Kennedy Tapes: Diane Sawyer Lets Us Listen

A 1964 taped interview with Jackie Kennedy will be released for the first time tomorrow, some 47 years after it was recorded. In it, the newly widowed former first lady opens up with frank opinions about figures like Martin Luther King Jr. and French leader Charles de Gaulle, while also reminiscing about her marriage. Diane Sawyer will host an upcoming special on the tapes, and she was on The Colbert Report last night to discuss. Before she came out, we got to listen to parts of the interview, and it was more moving to hear Jackie's voice than just read the quotes. Of becoming first lady, Jackie said, "Suddenly everything that had been a liability before — your hair, that you spoke French, that you didn't just adore the campaign, and you didn't bake bread with flour up to your arms — then when we got into the White House all the things that I'd always done, suddenly became wonderful." Listen now.

From what I could hear last night, it sounds as if her disses of MLK are conditioned on 'if' what J Edgar Hoover said was true. If, as Hoover said, MLK was partying with other women, then she thought he was a hypocrite. If, as Hoover said, MLK criticized JFK's funeral, then he was mean.
