Thursday Q and A (5.26)

Henry Wallace
"Mr. Wallace: having witnessed the violent European fascist uprising of the 1930's & 40's, are there any parallels to be made with America today?"

"The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With fascists, the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news [media] to deceive the public."
Henry Wallace, New York Times, April 9, 1944
