Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled!
I think the press was muzzled, and I think the press self-muzzled. I'm sorry to say, but certainly television and, perhaps, to a certain extent, my station was intimidated by the administration and its foot soldiers at Fox News. And it did, in fact, put a climate of fear and self-censorship, in my view, in terms of the kind of broadcast work we did - Christiane Amanpour

“Pro” Jewish Organizations Hide Cable Confirming Anti-Jewish Atrocities In Nazi-Germany
Started 1933-04-06Ended 1933-04-06
Cyrus Adler and Alfred Cohen receive a cable stating that the Nazi Göring was forcing top Jewish officials to lie about Nazis atrocities. The cable warned Jewish officials would be sending out cables to Jews abroad telling them to stop the anti-Nazi boycott because the anti-Nazi hysteria had been overly hyped.

Instead of releasing the cable to the public which would empower the anti-Nazi boycott the two men kept it hush, and sent the cable to the Secretary of State Cordel Hull who had already been oppressing this kind of information. Hull’s response was to setup a meeting time to discuss the contents of the cable.
Schacht’s Trip To America
Started 1933-05-04Ended 1933-05-13
Schacht then President of Reichsbank had come to America to talk to President Roosevelt and the Secretary of State Hull about the current Germany situation. Roosevelt voiced concerns about the Jewish persecution going on in Germany, but was eager to mend economic ties. Also at the meeting Schacht dropped the bomb - Germany was running out of finances and would soon be defaulting on all external loans. Roosevelt’s response was “Serves the Wall Street bankers right!”. Hull was more concerned with this news and the affects that it would have on the depression ravaged American economy.

Schacht also met with President of RCA David Sarnoff and other prominent Jewish group heads including Stephen Wise. Schacht repeated the Nazi rhetoric that what was happening inside of Germany was not the concern of foreigners. The talks broke down and went nowhere - especially seeing that the Jews knew that the boycott was crippling Germany’s economy.

When Schacht was leaving he was contacted by James McDonald on behalf of the Foreign Policy Association. McDonald stated that France was talking about invading Germany and dividing up the country if the Jewish persecution continued. The information was relayed to Hitler after Schacht was back on the boat to Germany.
