JFK Photo Hoax?

The gossip web site TMZ.com today published a photo purporting to show John F. Kennedy frolicking on a yacht with a harem of women with no clothes. They said the picture could've changed history. Then they said it's a hoax.
I don't understand, is the JFK Photo real or is it just a hoax?

The photo of JFK is not real, it's just a hoax.

According to fox news:

A recently discovered photograph caused quite a stir Monday when gossip site TMZ reported that the image showed a young President John F. Kennedy vacationing on a boat with at least four women in the 1950s with no clothes.

But Playboy magazine says the photo ran as part of 1967 story about vacationing on a yacht.

The worn photograph shows two women sun bathing on a boat and two more women skinny dipping. On the deck of the boat, a man who looks similar to President John F. Kennedy is shown sunbathing."

Just a hoax.

The celebrity gossip site TMZ.com got punk'd today when it fell for a photo hoax.
Trumpeting an "exclusive," with the headline "The JFK Photo That Could Have Changed History," TMZ said it obtained the "never-before published photograph" that "could have altered world events." TMZ said it believed the crumpled black-and-white snapshot was taken in the mid-1950s, before Kennedy was president.

And it was a hoax.
The joke is on them.

TMZ thought they were about to change history and it was a hoax, that's hilarious.

While a forensic expert claimed the JFK Photo appeared to be an authentic image of Kennedy vacationing in the Mediterranean, a rep from Playboy told that the photo was taken in the Grenadines as part of a feature entitled "Charter Yacht Party: How to Have a Ball on the Briny with an Able-Bodied Complement of Ship's Belles."

At first all the consulted experts said there was "no evidence the JFK photo was Photoshopped." They were right, but TMZ wasn't. Turns out the picture ran as part of a photo spread in 1967, four years after JFK was assassinated.
The site acknowledged its error, once a tipster alerted them to the fact.

Let's suppose the photo was real. It's entirely possible knowing Kennedy's rep as a ladies man.

Still, it was a hoax and that's what they get for being more sesationalistic instead of news worthy.

The cause of this, and of 46 million abortions, is that the entertainment industry started to market se x and perversion instead of entertainment in the 70's. Thank God someone was smart enough to scam them!!!!!!!!

Who Shot JFK...on the boat?
I just thought the resolution of the photo looked odd. For a 1960s Kodak Brownie or something similar to have taken a shot from that distance and for JFK to be pin-sharp in it didn't seem realistic. Sure even the photos of JFK's assassination were blurry because of the cameras of the time.

TMZ JFK Photo Hoax
This is really a photo of JFK while serving in the USN circa 1942 in the south Pacific/Solomon Islands. The background to the story and the photo is the USN was seriously considering conscripting women into military service and allowing females to serve aboard combat vessels. JFK then a young Lieutenant (jg), volunteered for this special mission to ascertain if men can serve onboard ship for long periods of time in close quarters with females. The experiment was a complete success but the idea had to be abandoned when five of the six women included in this experiment turned up pregnant and the males aboard ship all came down with a dose of the clap. The sixth female test subject turned out to be a transgendered – this is where the phrase ‘chick with a dick’ entered the lexicon. Shortly after the study, JFK became a war hero and received the Navy/Marine Life Saving Medal. When asked why he volunteered for this study, the young lieutenant (jg) was quoted as saying “ask not what your country can do for you, ask who you can do for your country.” The rest, as they say is apocryphal history.

JFK : HOAX photo I thought mudslinging was over
Let us face it this is just another case of Catholic bashing --pure and simple!!!

Many people were burned up to think that An Irish Catholic could get into the power domain historically occupied by the Freemasons!! Know your history and get your heads out of the sand.

JFK was the last true Statesman who tried to effect new ideas and innovations for the youth and future of this country,

Wall Street i.e., the market was in good shape then.

Let this man lie in peace!!!
