"We welcome criticism, but we would prefer it to be true. Both of these statements are not one inch'short of libel on the public welfare." . From defense of NRA's economic position the general switched to a smoking assault on newspaper opponents, whom he described as "ft weariness to the heart and a grievous ailment to the stomach." Reporters, he said, are forced to "prostitute their talents in libelous and- misleading stories pandered as news at the behest of opinionated bosses." "I protest that it is not freedom of the .press," he added, "to suppress or garble important news of public affairs which happens not to be in accord with some editorial policy or opinion."
