This is a volunteer position; a very modest stipend is possible on a limited basis for extraordinarily well qualified applicants.

Are there any research enthusiasts out there, driven by their conviction to solve one of America’s greatest mysteries? It has been half a century since John F. Kennedy’s chilling assassination reverberated across the globe. The secrets the government so relentlessly tried to conceal are out - in the form of a shocking document pile numbering in the thousands. Now all we need is passion, curiosity, and determination to unravel the complete, unadulterated details of an assassination that shook the country.

Come play a part in history, with an up-and-coming investigative and analytical news site that specializes in responsibly tackling many subjects the mainstream media shies away from. WhoWhatWhy does not promote a partisan angle or push predictable news. We do dig deep, think hard, read a lot of history, ask a lot of questions, steer clear of establishment or consensus journalism, and write up what we find with a verve. It’s important work.
