This chapter details Mencken's role at the first televised national political convention, his views of politicians, and his view on the detrimental power of television over print. In 1948, Mencken experienced a resurgence of interest in his work and his glory. He became an American institution; his publisher Alfred Knopf labeled him a force in the Republic. In the midst of all these, Mencken suffered from a cerebral stroke.
