Question of the Day

Yesterday we asked: Who called television a "vast wasteland" in a speech to the National Association of Broadcasters on May 9, 1961?

Answer: That was Newton Minow.

Congrats to Dan Rosenbaum, who was first to tweet the correct answer.

Your question of the day for today is…What film was J. Edgar Hoover’s assistant D.M. Ladd referring to when he wrote in a memo that “the film represented rather obvious attempts to discredit bankers...a common trick used by Communists”?
