Mitchell & Webb have a great piece on the supposed 'fake' moon landings.

'Right, so... they spent all that money on a rocket to leave earth and come back so many weeks later to fake a moon landing. The same amount of money it would cost to actually send a rocket to the moon. They set up film studios to create the fake landing footage and would have ended up paying even more for location fees, and the catering. Why not just send somebody to the moon?'

I haven't seen Room 237.

Oh. Well, it's kind of crap.

You can just watch the latest Toast of London instead when he crashes the studio where Kubrick is filming the fake landing.

You've seen the BS film analysis in Room 237, right? Where they try to posit that The Shining was one huge confession?

This strikes me as being fake as shit. (I just read the transcript and didn't watch the video.) That said, it's entertaining as hell.

Stanley Kubrick Confesses to Faking Moon Landings

A stunning new video has emerged 15 years after Stanley Kubrickís death in which Kubrick admits that the NASA moon landings were faked.

Filmmaker T. Patrick Murray interviewed Kubrick three days before his death in March 1999. He was forced to sign an 88-page NDA to keep the contents of the interview a secret for 15 years.

Below is a transcript from the interview with Stanley Kubrick, in which the 2001 Space Odyssey Director admits on camera that, ďthe moon landings ALL were faked , and that I was the person who filmed it.Ē

We have included a leaked rough cut of the interview below the transcript:

[SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO]

K: Iím so preoccupied. With my work, innovation, risk-taking, regretsÖ
T: Why are you giving this interview?
K: Because, it started to get to me after awhile. Well, this is difficult, because it is the first time Iíve talked about it. (sighs)
T: Sure, take all the time you need.
K: Iíve always been conflicted by it, but not consciously until years later. I was just blown away by the chance, the opportunity, the challenge of making this, this production, and I went into this like it was a regular film, like another regular film of mine, not thinking too much about uh the long term effects of what it would mean to society if it was ever discovered.
T: What are you talking about? Iím dying to know what youíre talking about.
K: Well, a confession of sorts. A movie I made, that nobody is aware of Ė even though theyíve seen it.
T: A movie you made, no one knows you made? Is that what you said?
K: Thatís right. Is that intriguing? Do I have you intrigued?
K: I perpetrated a huge fraud on the American public, which I am now about to detail, involving the United States government and NASA, that the moon landings were faked, that the moon landings ALL were faked , and that I was the person who filmed it.
T: Ok. (laughs) What are you talkingÖYouíre serious. Ok.
K: Iím serious. Dead serious.
K: Yes, it was fake.
T: Ok. Wait. WaitÖ
T: I donít want this to be an R-rated film, but seriously, what the blank, but seriouslyÖ
T: I, I, I worked almost eight months to secure this once in a lifetime interview that almost no else could ever get, and instead of talking about his sixteen films that Iíve endured since I was a childÖThat we didnít land on the moon, youíre saying?
K: No, we didnít.
K: It was not real.
T: The moon landings were fake?
K: A, a, a.. fictional moon landing. A fantasy. It was not real.
K: Donít you think itís important for people to know the truth?
T: The moon landing in í69, which was two years before my birthÖ
K: Is total fiction.
T: Total fiction.
T: Is that?ÖSo, thatís the 15 year thing. So thatís makes sense now. Thatís why I canít release it for 15 years now, that makes total sense now.
T: Did weÖwe didnít land on the moon youíre saying?
K: No, we didnít.
T: Why are you telling me?
K: A, a, a, a massive fraud. An unparalleled fraud perpetrated against them. They SHOULD know.
K: Nixon want to uh, they were planning, yeah, he want to fake this, this moon landingÖ
T: Are you contending that people DONíT want to know the truth about the world, reality, the moon landingsÖ?
K: The government, knowing this, takes advantage of it by perpetrating fraud after fraud after fraud.
T: How did you end up giving in? Being complicit with this fraud?
K: I didnít want to do it.
T: This is NOT where I thought this interview was going!
K: With my help, with my, with my aid, and it is, it is bothering me.
T: I only have this certain amount of time with you. And Iíll talk about whatever you want, butÖ
T: Youíre notÖThis isnít some type of joke, orÖ
K: No. No, itís not.
T: Or a film within a film thingÖ
K: Not joking. NOPE.
T: Okay.
K: The conspiracy theorists were right, on this occasion.
T: I donít know what to ask you first.
K: I thought it was wrong, I justÖI didnít believe in perpetrating a fraud like that.
T: But you did.
K: It also undermined my artistic integrity to do that.
T: Ok, but you ended up saying yes. Why?
K: Well, yes, but because basically I was bribed. To put it bluntly, thatís what it was. It was just a plain fucking bribe.
T: Why are you telling me?
K:A, a, a, massive fraud. An unparalleled fraud perpetrated against them. They SHOULD know! Donít you think itís important for people to know the truth?
T: Why did they have to fake it? Why? Why would they ever need to do something like that? Why would the government ever want or need to doÖ
K: Itís no secret that NASA always wanted to fulfill this Kennedy prophecy.
T: Take it from the beginningÖ
T: I gotta be honest, this is where he (Kubrick) got me. I mean, when I actually put myself in his position, when I actually imagine that he was telling the truth, and that he was presented with this opportunity and if in the one in a billion chance that I lived his life and I was presented with the same opportunity, what would I do?
T: Yeah, he wanted his approval points up and he thought nothing could do it better than this.
T: What a conflict. I mean, gosh, I canít imagine being presented with that opportunity. On one hand, Iíd really would want to do it, but then Iíd probably say Iím committing a crime, and lyingÖ
T: It depends, but my guess would beÖno, if youíre good, but you would do it.
K: Spielberg, (inaudible) Scorsese, even Woody Allen. There isnít one of them who wouldnít do this.
T: I gotta admit: Iíd do it. Iíd do it too.
T: But they dangled all this power and all this flattery on you, essentially?
K: Yeah, it got to me after awhile. You can listen to so much of that stuff before you start to believe it.
T: They just said you were the greatest and stuff?
K: Yeah, yeah Ė and I agreed with them.
K: Why are you telling the world? Why does the world need to know that the moon landings arenít real and you faked them?
K: Which I consider to be my masterpiece.
T: And you canít take credit, or even talk aboutÖ
K: Well, I am now..
T: Right, so youíll be dead. In ten years, or 15Ö
K: Right, ten or 15 something like that.
T: So, you canít talk to Roger Ebert about it. Does that frustrate you?
T: Why did they have to fake it? Why would they have to do that?
K: Because it is impossible to get there.
T: Ok, back up, back up, back upÖ.

We're learning more about the CIA 'cover-up' surrounding JFK's assassination

Just after noon on November 22, 1963, the US lost its 35th president to a bullet in Dallas.

The assassination of President John F. Kennedy spurred numerous conspiracy theories, many of which doubted whether sniper Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone and asserting that the CIA was involved.

And now, a declassified 2013 report by CIA historian David Robarge details how, at the very least, the CIA knew much more than it has let on.

The report states that John McCone, then the director of the CIA, withheld important information from President Lyndon B. Johnson's "Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy" ó also referred to as the "Warren Commission" ó and that top agency officials were part of a "benign cover-up."

The spy agency acknowledges that McCone and other high-ranking CIA officials kept "incendiary and diversionary issues" from the investigation, much of which may have shed light on how Oswald spent his time in the years before the assassination.

"For a complete nobody, Oswald certainly did seem to hang out with well-connected people," University of Virginia professor Larry Sabato, author of "The Kennedy Half-Century: The Presidency, Assassination, and Lasting Legacy of John F.Kennedy," told Business Insider in 2013.

According to the declassified report, the CIA decided to tell the Warren Commission only the "best truth" about Oswald. Having taken that decision, the CIA kept information from the inquiry that would almost certainly have led the inquiry down a different path.

Among the most important information McCone and other officials failed to divulge was that the CIA had spent years plotting the assassination of Fidel Castro.

Not being aware of these plots, the Warren Commission could not know that was something to investigate ó but the new information suggests it would have been valuable.

While living in New Orleans in 1963, for example, Oswald shared office space with a CIA-backed anti-Castro group.

Oswald had handed out pro-Castro literature with the address 544 Camp Street on it. FBI agent Guy Banister and a CIA-backed Cuban Revolutionary Council also rented space at the same location.

"One thing that I've always wondered about is [Oswald's] time in New Orleans because he was apparently associated with Guy Banister, who clearly had FBI and CIA ties, and yet he's also scuffling on the street with [the local representative of] an anti-Castro group," Sabato told Business Insider in 2013.

And Sabato's book notes that "it could be that Oswald was just a Forrest Gump-like character who popped up at interesting moments wherever he happened to live."

"But just as conceivably, whether related to the Kennedy assassination or not, Oswald actually had secretive contacts with the CIA or the FBI, or both," he said.

Continuing the lie
The report also reveals that in 1978, McCone lied about failing to divulge the Castro plots.

When a House committee asked him whether the spy agency had withheld information from the commission about the plots to kill Castro, McCone said he couldn't answer because he had not been told about the plots.

The report says McCone's answer "was neither frank nor accurate."

According to one of the lawyers of the Warren Commission cited in the report, McCone had discussed Robert Kennedy's uneasiness about the CIA withholding that information in 1975.

The US attorney general at the time of his brother's assassination, Robert Kennedy had been overseeing the spy agency's anti-Castro actions, which included some of the assassination plots.

According to the report, McCone thought "Robert Kennedy had personal feelings of guilt because he was directly or indirectly involved with the anti-Castro planning."

The report hints at the kind of questions the president's brother might have been asking himself, namely: "Had the administration's obsession with Cuba inadvertently inspired a politicized sociopath to murder John Kennedy?"

Though the report sheds some light on the extent of a CIA cover-up, it still leaves many questions unanswered. Numerous names and mentions throughout the report have also been redacted, suggesting that some information might never be publicly disclosed.

And as to whether Oswald acted alone or with accomplices, those who doubt the Warren Commission's findings might never find a satisfying answer.

"For all attempts to close the case as 'just Oswald,' fair-minded observers continue to be troubled by many aspects of eyewitness testimony and paper trails," Sabato writes.

The report concludes that McCone could be accused of being a "co-conspirator" in a cover-up surrounding Kennedy's assassination only insofar as he kept the plot to kill Castro secret after November 22, 1963.

"As far as the CIA goes Ö it is clear beyond question that the CIA lied repeatedly to the Warren Commission and continued lying to the House Select Committee on Assassinations," Sabato said in 2013.

"Revealing nothing about the assassination attempts on Fidel Castro. Revealing very little about the fact they kept close tabs on Oswald: They knew what he was doing ó they were evaluating him. I think they had something in mind. I don't subscribe to the hidden coup within the CIA, although I don't rule it out."

The CIA recently told Politico that the agency decided to declassify the report "to highlight misconceptions about the CIA's connection to JFK's assassination," including the infamous "Grassy Knoll" theory that asserts the CIA was behind the assassination.

New details could come out when thousands of CIA documents are scheduled to be released in October 2017.

Sabato said: "The president at that time will get to rule whether anything can remain secret and redacted."
