About the Author:

Alfred R. Schneider is an attorney and consultant in the communications industry and an adjunct professor at Fordham University's Graduate School of Business Administration. Kaye Pullen was a speech writer for President Gerald Ford and has served as director of Editorial Services for ABC.

From Publishers Weekly:

Whatever sex, violence, colorful language and other racy behaviors TV audiences glimpsed on ABC between 1960 and 1990, they have Alfred R. Schneider, the former head of "standards and practices," to thank or to blame. In The Gatekeeper: 30 Years as a TV Censor, written with Kaye Pullen, he discusses firsts like The Day After, All in the Family, The Twilight Zone and That Certain Summer, an early '70s show on which a man tells his son that he's gay. Alternately businesslike and juicy, Schneider's revelations are the nuts and bolts of a powerful if thankless task.
