Asking the good folks here because a Google search, I believe, would have too many “junk” hits, and I want real info.
Ann Coulter, and various other posters here, have cited a report (name I can’t remember, I think it begins with a “v”) that supposedly vindicates Joseph McCarthy, showing that many/most/all (depending on who you ask) of the people he accused of being Communist actually were.
Whether this means anything to how we should view him is a subject for GD. What I want to know is this: we know that his infamous list was fake. I don’t think many people dispute that. But given that, where did he get the people he actually ended up accusing that this report refers to? Where did he find specific folks to accused when it came time to walk the walk? Were those sources accurate? How much role did McCarthy play in actually getting those names, and in getting them out to the public!
Enquiring minds etc. etc.
