Just to make my point. This image of McCarthy is obviously intended to make him look bad. I could make Mother Teresa look bad if I wanted. It's not fair or right.
BTW again for the record. From Newsmax:
"...McCarthy actually underestimated the number of American Soviet spies working for the USSR in the FDR administration. It took a while, but in 1994 NSA and CIA released 190,000 formerly classified cablegrams they, and their predecessor agencies, intercepted from 1943 to 1980. The number of American Soviet agents identified from Venona has reached 500, more than double the 205 McCarthy predicted..."
Search for "McCarthy's Legacy Still Misportrayed by Media After Venona Disclosure". I included quotes from a left wing paper before. This one isn't left wing. For once try actually educating yourself instead of falling back on discredited views. You're proving my point about the dangers of yellow journalism when you don't look at the facts.
Here's the photo.
