John T. Flynn was the testimony of the day. Flynn opened by introducing himself to the three hundred attendees as a journalist who primarily writes on economic and social issues. Flynn also worked as an associate editor for Collier’s and served as contributing editor for the New Republic in addition to being an author of several books. Senator Worth Clark inquired about relevant background for this investigation, but Flynn had nothing new to add. When McFarland asked Flynn’s purpose in testifying, Flynn stated his role as New York chairman of the America First Committee. Flynn and McFarland had a lively bout while trying to find out Flynn’s role in this investigation. McFarland pegged Flynn as a propagandist himself and argued circles around the journalist. Flynn outlined a long list of films he felt were propagandistic war mongering.
