Knight Says
U.S. Fails To
Face Reality
MIAMI, Fla., Jan. 5.-(A)-John
S. Knight, president of the American
Society of Newspaper Editors, today
asserted that the United States had
not come to grips with wartime reali-
ties in domestic or in foreign affairs.
To anyone who has seen a bit of
the war, the first impression on
coming back to America is one of
extreme unreality," he told an audi-
ence of 200 Miami business men.
As examples, Knight mentioned
delays in war production caused by
labor disputes and strikes, and criti-
cized statements from high places
hinting that the war soon would be
Commenting on the role of news-
papers now and after the war,
Knight said: "I know from experi-
ence that there is too much political
censorship being practeed. We don't
get the truth about certain situa-
tions, and that is one of the reasons
why I am making this fight, with
other members of the American
Society of Newspaper Editors, for
world freedom of news.
