Washington Wire

September 1954
New Republic;9/6/54, Vol. 131 Issue 10, p2
This article presents brief notes on various current socio-political issues and developments in the U.S. in comparison to rest of the world. It is opined that the American tepid interest in politics and national affairs are the result and not the cause of incompetent news dissemination media. Reading some of the local newspapers picked up en route, or listening to the chance broadcasters tuned in one wonders how the public does as well as it does. The French Government defends its national culture jealously. The orthodox American thesis is that this government intervention is all wrong and socialistic.
