Alrighty then.

“No! No! Baby Mustn’t Touch!” (Oct, 1921)

“No! No! Baby Mustn’t Touch!”

These are not “before and after” pictures. They are all “before” pictures.

What newspaper are your children reading? (Feb, 1935)

Just another example of the lame stream liberal media trying to indoctrinate kids, just like college.

What newspaper are your children reading?

• Does it do its best to present the whole truth?
• Does it give both sides of disputed questions?
• Does it have convictions—and is it fair to those who disagree?
• Does it show the world as it is, without distortion?
• Does it winnow out the chaff from the wheat in the day’s news?
• Is it exciting without being sensational?
