ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis based primarily on the case study of post-war broadcasts of radio commentator Fulton Lewis, Jr. This record of commentary has been supplemented by a study of Lewis' flies of fan-mail, newspaper clippings regarding his activities, pertinent public files of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission, interviews with various persons who have been the subject of broadcast attacks, interviews with Lewis' assistants, and several talks with Lewis himself. Three campaigns which this commentator conducted during the post-war period have been selected for particular attention, his attacks on cooperatives, on the government housing program, and on price control. In addition, three sets of charges which he made against individuals and organizations have been examined more briefly. Lewis, is one of the phenomenal tribe of radio newsmen who rose from $25 a week to $250,000 a year in a decade of broadcasting.
