WYOMING CHRONICLE

Politics of Fear

  • Aired: 10/18/2013
  • 27:00
  • Rating: NR
Politics of Fear - The suicide of Wyoming U.S. Senator Lester Hunt in 1953 was a shocking event. The political tactics and homophobic blackmail that led up to that act are even more shocking. At the scheming center of it all is the infamous Sen. Joseph McCarthy. We speak with Roger McDaniel, author of "Dying for Joe McCarthy's sins" and attend a mock trial.
