McCarthy's Long Shadow

On The Point, a rebroadcast of our conversation with Larry Tye about his book Demagogue: The Life and Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy. Tye poured through McCarthy’s personal papers, medical and military records along with recently unsealed transcripts of his closed door congressional hearings. We discuss McCarthy’s influence on America and how it compares with that of President Trump.
