American Mass-Market Magazines

By Alan Nourie; Barbara Nourie | Go to book overview

munism, the United Nations, labor unions, foreign aid, the mental health movement, the fluoridation of drinking water, the Peace Corps, Israel, and blacks. In the seventies, more and more articles appeared lauding the white race and supporting segregation.

When the Mercury ceased publication in 1980, the publisher was still listed as the Legion for the Survival of Freedom, of Torrance, California.

Writing in 1959, Lawrence Spivak stated that if he had known what was going to happen to the Mercury, he "would have buried it. . . . It is a shame that the magazine that contributed so much and earned a great name in its day, should come to such a state." 11 What was true in 1959 was even more true in 1980.
