The complicit American press in the rise of Mussolini and Hitler
See this story citing the historical record with specific details of the US Press's published statements. Some credited Mussolini "with saving Italy from the far left and revitalizing its economy." Some called it a return to "normalcy." The press portrayed Hitler as a joke, that no one could possibly take him seriously. Some said after he won that the office and staff would tame him to common standards of decency and protocol. Does any of this sound familiar of the US press in this recent election?
