Los Angeles Times is the newspaper which, on August 21, 1997, published a front-page article describing an the unrest created by the announcement that Michael Collins Piper would be addressing a seminar on the John F Kennedy Assassination at an Orange County community college. The Los Angeles Times article stated that the ADL had stated that Michael Collins Piper was "... a proponent of Holocaust Denial and that his claim that "..the Israelis killed Kennedy..." was "ridiculous". The ADL did not cite any evidence of of these claims. Michael Collins Piper reflected on the article by writing that, "...evidently the ADL considers that [accusations of Holocaust Denial ]the ultimate kiss of death and that such accusations are fair game when trying to silence anyone who runs afoul of its agenda".

The Los Angeles Times published a second article on Michael Collins Piper on August 22, 1997, in which Piper is quoted as saying, "The Anti-Defamation League has not heard the last of Final Judgment. The door has been kicked open. There is now going to be a lot of debate about this book".
The Los Angeles Times articles quoted Gerald Posner, the author of "Case Closed" (in which Gerald Posner claims that the Warren Commission Report was, except for a few minor errors, and was corrected in asserting that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone). Gerald Posner, whom Michael Collins Piper described as a Cosmopolitan, was dumbstruck that the Orange County community college seminar was happening (before it was canceled), According to Piper. Gerald Posner stated that, "This strikes me as being similar to the notion that the Holocaust was a hoax." This happens to be precisely the propaganda line now promoted by the ADL which has said that if people believe there was a conspiracy behind the JFK assassination, they might also end up believing that there was no Holocaust".
