* In the MarvelCinematicUniverse, specifically ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', this is obliquely referred to in Zola's CharacterTract when he says that "when history did not cooperate...history was changed." with a ominous zoom-in of the Winter Soldier crouched on a walkway with a sniper rifle.

* The ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'' uses the assassination of a visiting dignitary in Ankh-Morpork to spoof the JFK conspiracy theories. The Watch come to the conclusion that he was shot in the back by a man in front of him who couldn't possibly have used the bow. StealthPun: One witness is a troll-related creature known as a "gnoll". Gnolls are essentially living heaps of dirt, so of course he is covered with grass. Worse than that, a slang term for an informer is a "grass" -- so he was a gnolly grass...

** In "Unusual Suspects" Byers asks this question to [[TheMenInBlack X]], who snidely replies "I heard it was the work of a lone gunman.". This inspires Byers and his friends to name themselves Series/TheLoneGunmen.

** Of course, this game makes it so depressingly easy to assassinate the president that a lot of players try to make the kill in all sorts of...uh...creative ways (like shooting the ''driver'', causing the car to crash).

* ''Series/MurderSheWrote'': In "Dead Eye", Jessica gets involved in a murder centred a set of photo negatives that prove the involvement of an organized crime figure in the Kennedy assassination. At the end of the episode, the negatives are lost in the harbour and the mob boss dies trying to escape the police, with the implication that someone might have tampered with his brakes.

* ''Series/RedDwarf'' had the crew causing a BadFuture by accidentally knocking Oswald out of the window (in the process of going back in time to replenish the ship's depleted stock of curry), and had to bring the now not-dead JFK himself back through time to shoot himself from the grassy knoll to restore his place in history. Especially hilarious since ''suggesting'' that the time traveling ''Franchise/StarTrek'' crew kill JFK to fix a corrupted timeline is what cost GeneRoddenberry his ProtectionFromEditors.

* If ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'' [[WhatCouldHaveBeen ever had a sixth series]], it would've shown [[LethallyStupid Baldrick]] accidentally killing the President while playing around with a gun in Dallas.

** In ''Literature/TheStand'', it's implied in passing that Randall "the dark man" Flagg had a passing acquaintance with Oswald, and -- given the context of the passage -- ''might'' just have influenced him to pick up the gun.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/{{Leverage}}'' the assassination is the basis for a SeinfeldianConversation between [[TheBigGuy Eliot]] and [[EnemyMine Sterling]] on a job. The camera returns to them in the throes of a shouting match in which Sterling loudly and unequivocally proclaims it "Absolutely humanly impossible" for the rifle to be fired that fast. Naturally, Eliot's pulled it off.
