OUR GYVED EDITORIALISTS.
The average editorial writer wears gyves. He
writes what he is told to write. He drags clink
ing behind his paragraphs, a chajn.
The tradition of a free press in this land of the
brave is a myth, an embossed fiction, an aerial
phantasmagoria. In other words there ain't no
such animal except in isolated instances. I
The average editorial from United Stated
newspaper offices is manufactured behind the
glass doors of counting rooms. Its complexion
is painted by the owners of the 51 per cent, of
the capital stock, and Js shaped to harmonize
with the interests of big advertisers.
That is why the great newspapers of America
nave,largely lost their influence. That is why
the 80«edd per cent, of America's newspapers
took a beating the other day by the common peo
ple who have lost faith in them as purveyors of
morality and truth.
i Now the above paragraphs are the substance
of an editorial that appeared in the Danbury Re
porter some months ago in which was stated the
;frank fact that the bulk of the editors of Ameri

The Reporter is flattered that so keen an ana
lyst and so eminent a publicist as Secretary or
ihe Interior lakes comes around practically to
cur view. And while the Secretary with his re
sponsibilities refrains from the candor that we
enjoy, nevertheless ycu may read his significant
meaning* between his lines. He says (speaking
, before a group of reporters representing many
of the leading papers of the nation):
"The campaign just closed revealed 77 per
cent, of the newspapers supporting the losing
r:ide; four years ago it was 64 per cent; eight
years ago it was 60 per cent."
He ended with this:
"The press is not free when it expresses only
the views of one social or economic side of a na
A week ago the Reporter reprinted an editorial
from the Philadelphia Record (a great news
paper which wears no gyves), a graphic history
of the life and recent DEATH of a Tennessee
newspaper that dared speak its honest convic
The power of money is so collossal, and its
lamificatiDns so universal, that its influence
cannot be measured.
.But as long as a small minority of newspapers
will dare to speak the "Truth that makes men
free" therse is hope for the world.
The voice of the people is the voice of God. The
greatest menace to democracy is the "controlled"
press that smothers the voice of the people.
The sacred privilege of a free speech through a
_ree press is democracy's last refuge.
