Not Red All Over

Johnson, Gerald W.
January 1956
New Republic;1/16/56, Vol. 134 Issue 3, p23
The article focuses on issues related to the U.S. press and communism. U.S. Senator James O. Eastland and his committee has attacked communism in the American press. He has exposed the employees of "Times" newspaper. The only rational ground for objecting to the presence of communists in the press is the danger that they may propagate lying arguments in favor of communism. Segregation, for example, has been attacked by the "Times," and it has nothing to do with communism. With all its faults, the "Times" has never taken the ground that its news columns should be used for indoctrination, rather than for information.
