Reagan's Role as Informant

September 05, 1985

It is a sad, sad state of affairs when we learn that both the President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, while head of the Screen Actors Guild, and Jackie Presser, head of the Teamsters Union, were informers for the FBI.

It dismays me that persons in positions of trust can betray their fellow workers in the name of self-interest and "patriotism."

I recall attending a New York subway workers' rally during those years when Mike Quill, head of that union, said, "I'd rather be called a Red by a rat, than be called a rat by a Red."
