Hollywood Blacklist Victims Speak Out: 'Our Industry
Was Under Attack'

THR interviews six actors and writers who were targeted
during the communist witch hunt.

This coming Sunday marks the 65th anniversary of the
inception of the infamous, career-destroying Hollywood
Blacklist that targeted supposed communists within the
entertainment industry.

The Nov. 30 issue of the The Hollywood Reporter
addresses the magazine's role in the communist witch
hunt, which was launched in 1946 by THR's legendary
owner, editor and publisher Billy Wilkerson, who would
name the alleged Reds in his "Tradeviews" column. His
son, W.R. Wilkerson III, has written a formal apology
for what he calls "Hollywood's Holocaust."

Animation: The Earth at Night, Seen From Space

This new global view and animation of Earth’s city
lights is a composite assembled from data acquired by
the Suomi NPP satellite. The data was acquired over
nine days in April 2012 and 13 days in October 2012. It
took 312 orbits to get a clear shot of every parcel of
Earth's land surface and islands. This new data was
then mapped over existing Blue Marble imagery of Earth
to provide a realistic view of the planet.

Colbert's The Word - Base Instincts

In the good old bad days of the 80s, Republicans could
turn out the suburban white vote simply by showing
images of fearsome felons.
