He drove back DiMaggio, angry, at the St Regis Hotel , in New York City.
On February 12, 1956, in his radio program (recorded by the FBI), he announced to the whole country that "the most famous blonde of the American cinema has became the left-wing intelligentsia sweetheart which included among its members, some Communist activists".
In the issue of August 1963 of Photoplay magazine, he developped the allegations published in the foreign press about a "married man" supposedly involved in Marilyn's death. According to the scenario he devlopped, she would have taken too many doses of drugs after having learned that this famous an admired man, at the climax of his career refused to see her again, for ever. This document brought to the right-wing political allies (like Frank A. Capell) a good way to creat doubts about Robert Kennedy.
