In the film "Reds".
This journalist, Jack Reed, wants to publish an article and the editor changes it because it's "red propaganda" (the action takes place in 1915). But Jack says it's the truth. And the editor asks: "Who is to say what the truth is? A bunch of goddamn Reds in the IWW (Industrial Workers of the World)? You're not being fair to the A.F. of L.!

Nineteen Nineteen: The Boston Police Strike in the Context of American Labor
2. The American Federation of Labor
At the center of the controversy which led to the Boston Police Strike were the policemen's wish to form a union affiliated with the American Federation of Labor (A.F. of L.), and the insistence of forces inside and outside of government that the policemen would not be allowed to do so. This statement immediately raises several questions. First, what perception of the A.F. of L. did the policemen have (in Weber's terms, what meaning did they attach to it) that made them want to join it, and made them think they could? Second, what meaning did the A.F. of L. have for those who sat at the other end of the negotiating table from the police, particularly Mayor Andrew J. Peters and his Citizens' Committee? The police believed that affiliation would solve their problems, while the mayor and his supporters considered affiliation intolerable. But despite this difference in interpretations, the policemen and Peters referred to the same set of events when considering the issue of affiliation.
