Kuh, Frederick
April 1941
New Republic;4/21/41, Vol. 104 Issue 16, p522
The article focuses on the suppression of the newspaper "Communist Daily Worker" by the British Government on January 21, 1941. It states that the British government under Winston Churchill had up until now allowed the press tremendous latitude in criticism. It mentions that "The Worker" often touted an anti-war rhetoric and has repeatedly defended Adolf Hitler but not the British government. It comments on "The Worker's" tendency to misrepresent the truth in reporting on events.
