September 1940
New Republic;9/9/40, Vol. 103 Issue 11, p339
The author reflects on the accusations by W. J. Cameron, propagandist of businessman Henry Ford, against the periodical "The New Republic" for allegedly lying about the Ford Motor Co.'s mistreatment of employees who are suspected of involvement in unionism. He said that the U.S. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has confirmed every charge made by the publication, refuting denials made by Cameron. The NLRB has ordered Ford to stop all violence against its employees.
