But the left-lean didn't come from KABL-AM, it came from Folklorist and author Stetson Kennedy. He contacted the producers of the Superman series and proposed a story where the superhero battles the Klan. The producers, agreed to the idea. Kennedy then upped the ante, infiltrating the Klan and providing Klan information, including secret code words, to the writers of the Superman radio program. This resulted in a series of four episodes in which Superman took on the KKK. Kennedy's intention was to strip away the Klan's mystique and trivialize the Klan's rituals and code words.
The Klan tried to retaliate by pressuring Pep Cereal--sponsors of the Adventures of Supermanoff of grocery shelves in Atlanta. Despite Green's actions, the sponsors continued to green-light the anti-Klan shows. That's right, Kelloggs was willing to stand up to inbred hicks wearing bedsheets, even the ones carrying pointy sticks. The anti-KKK story arc earned spectacular ratings which might have prompted their loyalism.
