Blacklisting: two key documents
Miller's report for the American Civil Liberties Union on his investigations of blacklisting activities in radio and television and of publications like the book, Red Channels and the newsletter, Counterattack which listed "left-leaning" people while charging that there existed a blacklist of anti-Communists, assesses the impact of blacklisting on casting and program content. Cogley's Report, sponsored by the Fund for the Republic, offers no opinion on the practice of blacklisting, but seeks to ascertain all the facts involved through interviews, as far as they were possible, with every important interest concerned -executives of radio and TV chains, advertising agencies, leading advertisers, theatrical unions, leaders of anti-Communist organizations, and others prominent in "listing" or "clearing" individuals, and many producers, directors, actors, writers, reporters, news commentators, and agency men.
