New York Post in Joe SteeleEdit

Under the ownership of J. David Stern, the New York Post had initially supported President Joe Steele through his reelection in 1936, but had quietly become neutral as Steele's administration grew more repressive.[1] Nonetheless, the Post did run pieces by Mike Sullivan that were critical of Steele. However, when Stern authorized the Sullivan-penned editorial, "Where Is Our Freedom Going?" in 1937,[2] the Administration responded by taking Sullivan into custody,[3] and sending him to a camp in Montana.[4] In early 1944, Sullivan's editor Stan Feldman was arrested himself.[5]
