WHO KILLED DOROTHY KILGALLEN?
During her 35-year career as a gossip columnist, crime reporter and panelist on the weekly TV game show, "What's My Line?," Dorothy Kilgallen ("Dolly Mae" to her friends), was a fearless journalist who broke major stories, and was the only reporter to interview Lee Harvey Oswald's killer, Jack Ruby. Her biggest case yet -- investigating President John F. Kennedy's assassination, and finding fault with the official story -- became the last one she ever pursued. She died mysteriously in November 1965, after being threatened, but the cops never probed further. Thanks to reruns on the Game Show Network, fans are still talking about Dorothy, including Larry King of CNN, and Dominick Dunne, who wrote about her in Vanity Fair. Now, shocking new information has emerged.
"This story isn't going to die as long as there's a real reporter
alive---and there are a lot of them."

And you're a sloppy researcher.
Rather than attacking her for being an alcoholic, and claiming she was a sloppy journalist, perhaps you can offer some insight in to how her claims that the official story of the JFK assassination were false?
Offer that different perspective instead of trying the old tiresome diversion tactics that people, who don't know how to debate, use.

Give me a break. I merely posted a link to a story that gives an alternate viewpoint about this women...
It's the most controversial case in modern American history. Did Lee Harvey Oswald kill John Kennedy by himself, or did a conspiracy do it? And if a conspiracy did it, did the conspiracy include Oswald?
If you are like most Americans, you believe that a conspiracy killed Kennedy. And if you are like most Americans, you have heard a vast number of bogus factoids about the case.
This web site is dedicated to debunking the mass of misinformation and disinformation surrounding the murder of JFK. If you are believer in Oswald as a lone gunman, you are likely to enjoy this web site, since most of that misinformation and disinformation has come from conspiracists. But if you are a sophisticated conspiracist, you likely understand that the mass of silly nonsense in conspiracy books and documentaries does no service to the cause of truth in the assassination, and simply buries the "case for conspiracy" under layers of bunk.

Dorothy died, untimely, from a drunken and, thereby, ill-conceived ingestion of sleeping pills. There was/is no physical evidence to suggest otherwise.

I did the same, and like you I don't know the truth myself,
I am fascinated, but like to keep an open mind.
I did some searching myself and found some interesting TIME mag articles from the era.
Google news archive is a great tool, but most of the pieces from back then are pay per view so I only read those I can access for free.
Nowhere did I find anything to suggest that Dorothy Kilgallen was a sloppy journalist
In the article I posted it discussed the alcohol/barbituates as the cause but cited mysterious circumstances and conspiracies as well.
The piece you linked to was biased and resorted to defaming the reporter which makes me wonder why?
I have no problem with the site you used for your contribution.
I just question their intentions.
