42. Perhaps ...
but I give Bugliosi more credit than that.

Jim DiEugenio makes the case here that Bugliosi backed himself into a corner in the JFK case. Gaining a false sense of the case from his drubbing of the ill-prepared Gerry Spence, in The Trial of Lee Harvey Oswald, Vince signs a book deal. Already committed to the book Vince then has to contend with the release of the movie JFK and the subsequent 1992 JFK Assassination Records Act. Which led to the formation of the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB).

So now Vince Bugliosi has put himself into this box in the JFK case. Since he can no longer argue the facts he resorts to smearing his critics. In the RFK case Bugliosi has no such quandary. Vince is still free to argue the facts of the RFK case.
