In the last interview before her death, Marilyn pleaded unsucessfully with a reporter to end his article like this: "What I really want to say: That what the world really needs is a real feeling of kinship. Everybody: stars, labourers, Negroes, Jews, Arabs. We are all brothers. Please don't make me a joke. End the interview with what I believe".
Despite her plea, the media always ignored what Marilyn Monroe actually believed because it was politically inconvenient.
The real truth the media ignored is that Marilyn Monroe was a caring, intelligent, compassionate civil rights advocate who was targeted, not by the Kennedys, as it is falsely claimed, but by J. Edgar Hoover’s and his Mafia cohorts, as anybody who has studied their activities in the 1960's, clearly understands.
Marilyn Monroe was a bona fide civil rights activist. In 1960, she sponsored SANE, the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy, she was an advocate for civil rights, black equality and peace, and an enemy of red-baiters who targeted reasonable people because they did not share their prejudices.
The gap between the truth about Marilyn Monroe and what the media promoted is as extreme as the difference between fairy tale and history.
Unlike the discredited media, Marilyn Monroe maintained her credibility. She was always consistent. A victim of Hoover's McCarthyite witchhunts, she sounded just like Hemingway when she said, "some of those bastards in Hollywood wanted me to drop Arthur. Said it would ruin my career. They're born cowards and want you to be like them. One reason I want to see Kennedy win is that Nixon's assocoiated with that whole scene."
In the end, those "bastards" who murdered Marilyn Monroe are mostly dead and these so called former "friends in high places" are directly responsible for denying Marilyn Monroe the opportunity to share concerns the media ignored.
