Biography
Uncensored was a weekly newsletter published in New York City from Oct. 7, 1939 to Dec. 6, 1941 by an informal group of journalists and publicists who called themselves the Writers Anti-War Bureau. The purpose of the newsletter was to analyze the news and unmask the hidden biases and propaganda of those on the national scene who sought to draw America into the war in Europe on the side of the Allies. Edited by Sidney Hertzberg and Cushman Reynolds, it was mailed to newspaper editors, columnists, radio commentators, and other molders of public opinion. Although short-lived, Uncensored was influential and respected for the integrity of its editors and for the high quality of reporting and analysis.
