Republican Party Platform of 1940

Contents:

Free Speech

The principles of a free press and free speech, as established by the Constitution, should apply to the radio. Federal regulation of radio is necessary in view of the natural limitations of wave lengths, but this gives no excuse for censorship. We oppose the use of licensing to establish arbitrarycontrols. Licenses should be revocable only when, after public hearings, due cause for cancellation is shown.
