As director of advertising and publicity for MGM, Howard Dietz had a long industrial knowledge after working with the company since 1924. Dietz informed the subcommittee that his team organizes film promotions and works with local representatives as well as the staff at the studio in California. Senator Tobey threw the same questions at Dietz about defining freedom of the press. “Freedom of speech within those definitions as relates to the press itself,” Dietz answered. Defining censorship of the press, Dietz argued it would take “a legal measure to restrain the press.” Tobey pressed Dietz on the possibility of legislation against censorship of the press, but Dietz noted that the Constitution already protected the freedoms of the press – no new laws should be necessary. Dietz also put to rest the controversy surrounding a theater in Nashville and possible interference from the studio. Schenck also resumed testimony.
