This article presents the U.S. President Harry S. Truman's views on advertising which he thought to be an attack on the government sponsored public power programs. The President's observation is one which is shared by all who have watched the steady stream of "advertorials" aimed at labor and all liberal ideas disguised as an attack on socialism. The election campaigns in 1952 intensified the propaganda barrage. Advertisers will pass the cost of their ads to the public by masking the political content, under the guise of tax-free "institutional advertising."
