The techniques and political objectives of much of the news media and politicians who have been attempting to hobble Trump and hound him from office are the same as those of Joe Mc Carthy used during the 1950s for the same purposes.

The difference is that McCarthy was one malevolent character, while institutions such as the New York Times, Washington Post and numerous Senators and House leaders are combining to make those attacks today.

I invite people to listen to Edward R Murrow's analysis of McCarthy's abuses of Senate privileges and compare them with the attacks being made on Trump today.
