Rate this:
Accused of creating a bogus Red Scare and smearing countless innocent victims in a five-year reign of terror, Senator Joseph McCarthy is remembered as a demagogue, a bully, and a liar. A half century after his death, his name remains synonymous with witch hunts. But that image is wrong, as veteran journalist Evans maintains in this groundbreaking book, based on six years of intensive research. Drawing on primary sources--including U.S. government records and FBI files, as well as recent research from Soviet archives--Evans presents irrefutable evidence of a relentless Communist drive to penetrate our government, influence its policies, and steal its secrets. He also shows that U.S. officials supposedly guarding against this danger not only let it happen but actively covered it up--precisely as Joe McCarthy contended. This book claims to provide the first accurate account of what McCarthy did and, more broadly, what really happened to America during the Cold War.--From publisher description.

“The Investigator” 1954
a radio play written by Reuben Ship and first broadcast by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) on May 30 of that year.
The play lampooned the actions of the US House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC) and Senator Joseph McCarthy.

Did you know Joe had 2 lists? The one that was public, and a second one of KGB agents in the CIA, and all the people on the second list were arrested? This book finally tells the truth about Joe. He is our Dreyfuss. He has been smeared for years, but after the fall of the Soviet Union, guess what we discovered? He was right.
