Praise for this book
"No one who cares about liberty will read Mr. Bayley's masterful study without a shudder about the journalistic cop-outs that contributed to making the nightmare called McCarthyism. This book reminds us that it could happen here, but perhaps will make it harder to happen next time."--Daniel Schorr
"Thorough, incisive and fascinating, this is the best account we have of the strange relationship between Joe McCarthy and the American press."--Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.
