ABSTRACT
Focuses on issues related to freedom of the press in the United States. View that the American press has been protecting its Constitution-given freedom from one imaginary threat or another ever since President Franklin D. Roosevelt took office; Report that Elisha Hanson, counsel to the American Newspaper Publisher's Association (ANPA), has made freedom of the press synonymous with chiseling in almost every department of the government; Resignation of David Stern, publisher of The Philadelphia Record from the ANPA in protest against its pusillanimous bickering over reforms directly affecting the profits of the press; Discussion on the issue of censorship by government officials and representatives of the press at private meetings; Report that the press, divided between its agreement that military secrets be kept and a vague distrust of anything done by the New Deal, particularly anything smacking of censorship, was left in a pitiable plight.
