Drew Pearson in The Man With the Iron HeartEdit

Drew Pearson had been a supporter of the Roosevelt Administration. Nonetheless, he did not appear to be a full-fledged supporter of Roosevelt's successor, Harry Truman. At one press conference, Pearson asked how Truman would continue the occupation of Germany if the American people didn't support it. In the opinion of Tom Schmidt, also in attendance, Truman shot Pearson a look that suggested a feeling of betrayal.[1]
