Transcript Excerpts from this letter follow: Bolshevism is the assault of greed, ignorance and brute force upon everything that Americans have learned to hold sacred. It destroys liberty, property rights, law, order, marriage, the home and education. It is the murderer of peace, enlightenment and progress. Its loot enriches a few black-hearted and red-handed leaders and beggars everybody LloL* • • • But now the mad wolves of anarchy have a considerable portion of Russia by the throat and are fiercely sucking their lifeblood. It is just as if the unarmed people of America living east of the great plains and north of Jacksonville were today terrorized by organized bands of 200,000 merciless robbers, engaged in robbing everybody, wrecking banks, factories and industries en masse and instantly shooting everyone suspected of disliking them or their methods. (New York Times, April 27, 1919.) Samuel Gompers, President, American Federation of Labor: No more monstrous or degrading movement was ever set up anywhere in the world. Its entire existence has been one of terrorism, tyranny and brutal slaying of those who are seeking for a just government, for the Bolsheviks have proved more tyrannous than ever were the Czar and his brutal officials. They have brutalized Russia and used every means to throttle freedom by joining Germany in its efforts to enslave the world. (New York World, November 28, 1919.) "NEWS" FROM RUSSIA The press has been, perhaps, the chief offender against truth and fact concerning Russia. A candid examination of reports about Russia in American newspapers will convince the most skeptical that since May, 1917, there has been, strictly speaking, no news from Russia. There has been a vast amount of material published, but it cannot be called news. Two-thirds of it has been anti-Russian propaganda, and the remaining one-third denials and retractions and tardy corrections of the other two-thirds. It is needless to point out that the denials and retractions have received far less prominence than the fabrications they sought to correct. The net impression of Russia built up by the press has been completely at variance with actual fact. The New York Times is generally conceded to be one of the most reliable of the conservative American newspapers. "All the News That Is Fit to Print" is the slogan that appears at the head of every issue. It makes a specialty of publishing in more detail than other papers original sources of information. A survey of the political news from Russia, specially featured in that paper, from May, 1917, will give a fair idea of the offense against Russia of the American press. 22
