The World This Week - November 22nd, 2013

The 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination also means a half-century of conspiracy theories. François Picard’s panel sorts the wheat from the chaff on JFK and also on the nuclear bargaining with Iran, the shooter who had all of Paris on tenterhooks and the political significance of France’s heroic qualification for the 2014 World Cup.

With our guests:

  • Craig Copetas, Correspondent-at-large, Quartz/The Atlantic Group
  • Annette Lévy-Willard, Reporter for Libération
  • Marc Burleigh, AFP journalist based in Paris
  • Aude Baron, Editor-in-chief "Le Plus-Nouvel Observateur"
