September 1953
New Republic;9/14/53, Vol. 129 Issue 7, p23
The article focuses on several issues related to politics in the United States. The country's business at Washington D.C. is conducted in an odor of dead and dying cigars suspended in steam beat. Out-of-doors Washington is widely planned and men might move about it thinking for a nation. But in the halls of the U.S. Congress, in the committee rooms, the air is warm and foul. In the battle of Senator J. McCarthy and the press the News and Courier stands neutral. Senator McCarthy has not interfered with the press' freedom.
