What I’m Reading: All The President’s Men – 42 in a series – “He accused the Post of McCarthyism…”

October 17th, 2019

 

”“Do you know why we’re not uptight about the press and the espionage business?” one White House aide—not Mr. Ziegler—asked rhetorically the other day. “Because we believe that the public believes that the Eastern press really is what Agnew said it was—elitist, anti-Nixon and ultimately pro-McGovern.”

Assuring his audience that “the First Amendment is alive and well in Washington,” he accused the Post of McCarthyism, and called Bradlee “the self-appointed leader of what Boston’s Teddy White IV once described as ‘that tiny little fringe of arrogant elitists who affect the healthy mainstream of American journalism with their own peculiar view of the world.’ . . .”
