The article discusses James A. Wechsler's charges on Joseph McCarthy. The Transcript of the hearing of James A. Wechsler's, editor of the New York Post, before McCarthy Permanent Investigating Subcommittee clearly justifies Mr. Wechsler's charge that McCarthy's aim in investigating him is to silence independent newspaper criticism. The issue of infringement on the free press by McCarthy is one that ultimately must be decided by pubIic opinion, but a strong stand by the American Society of Newspaper Editors is much-needed now if the public malady is also to work its own cure.
