Praise

…this history is a valuable correction.—Ms Magazine

…an impassioned, indignant documentation of the 1950s “war over popular culture,” highlighting the work of some particularly talented women heroes who could have shaped television programming to reflect real American values and diversity.

Foreword Reviews

The Broadcast 41 offers an insightful, persuasive history of the American conservative movement that united to suppress the voices of progressive women in broadcasting, and how their perspectives continue to remain relevant today. Stabile’s frequent connections between the environment of the 1950s and contemporary US politics – such as the #MeToo movement and the FBI’s targeting of ‘black identity extremists’ – may offer a way into this lesser-known history for a broad audience of readers. This ongoing effort to recover the voices of women, immigrants and people of colour in broadcasting offers a vibrant alternative to what she terms the continuing ‘historical amnesia’ surrounding the anti-communist blacklist.
