Flynn further asserted that Willkie "has been a machine politician all his adult life . . . He was a Tammany County committeeman in New York, he was associated with the State Central Committee in Ohio, he was affiliated with the Summit County organization in that same state. He was a spellbinder for the organization in Elwood and he was a lobbyist in Washington as well as in various States in which he lived." Again he charged "the Nation's press was 'under a dictatorship of financial interests of advertisers'". When the Democratic Times flopped to Willkie, Flynn quoted from a speech of Sulzberger in 1937, "The New York Times this year has lost a large amount of advertising . . . because of its support of President Roosevelt during the ( 1936) campaign".
Wilson's "open covenants openly arrived at" are regarded as more 'obsolete' by our President than our planes, destroyers, tanks.(1)
