RED CHANNELS: THE BIBLE OF BLACKLISTING by Jason Hill

Blacklisting in the entertainment industry by some over-zealous, self-appointed, would-be patriots during the 1940s, 1950s, and into the 1960s caused terrible destruction of life, wage-earning ability, and confidence in the substance of the American Way.

One horrendous example of blacklisting stood out: Red Channels, a publication that attacked radio and television artists only, including Artie Shaw, Arthur Miller, Lena Horne, Zero Mostel, Leonard Bernstein, Pete Seeger, Lillian Hellman, Dashiell Hammett, John Garfield, Norman Corwin, and Orson Welles.

The victim’s stories are retold from the viewpoint of many of those most affected by the war of guilt by innuendo that had no real facts to back up the claims made against them.
