NOT TO BE BROADCAST

A timely debunking of America's favorite indoor sport, which has become a power greater than the press. After a brief history of the growth and management of the various networks, the author goes on to expose the various forms of propaganda rampant, the political control, the unwarranted censorship, etc. Primarily an attack against big business which controls the air waves; nice tid bits of gossip:- Mrs. Roosevelt backed by Palm Olive, Warden Lawes by Sloan's Liniment, etc. When one realizes that a half hour program must earn $11,000.00 and that an election today depends largely on the radio, one is aware of the necessity of coming to grips with the world's largest monopoly. Written fluently, often ironic and passionate, nonetheless convincing. The facts are there -- they are slung forward, with proof. A workmanlike job, and sensational enough to sell in the class with 100,000,000 Guinea Pigs, and others of its lik. Charts, Diagrams.
