Truman aims to keep the "radio free from control by newspapers"

TLS as president, one page, 7 x 8.75, White House letterhead, November 26, 1948. Letter to Congresswoman Helen Gahagan Douglas, in part: "I have been up to date pursuing the policy of trying to keep the Communications system over the radio free from control by newspapers. I haven't had much help from Congress. It will require legislation to do the job as it ought to be done, and it certainly ought to be done." In fine condition. An intriguing letter on media cross-ownership, a subject of continued interest today as media empires have expanded into the virtual world. Encapsulated in a PSA/DNA authentication holder.
