Trial by Television

May 1954
New Republic;5/10/54, Vol. 130 Issue 19, p6
This article presents information on Secretary of Army Robert Stevens trial in the U.S. The Secretary was at all times at a disadvantage. The mild little man who was head of the United States Army headed for the Pentagon, trembling with exhaustion. The members of the Senate Subcommittee returned to their offices, rubbed raw and sore. The newspapermen went disconsolately down Pennsylvania Avenue to sort out scribbled notes of testimony. The crowd of spectators wandered off on its weary way. The weighty evidence, if there was to be weighty evidence, would come in the transcripts of telephone conversations. Stevens, almost in tears, pleaded necessity of respecting the rights of men innocent until proved guilty.
