Summary
Narrated by former CBS News anchorman Walter Cronkite, The McCarthy Years turns back the clock to the 1950s, a time when the country lurched into a murky period of blacklists and witch-hunts for alleged Communists, all led by a young Senator named Joseph McCarthy. Murrow's broadcasts from the 1950s show McCarthy's abuse of power and signal the emergence of television news as an influential force in American life. Features footage of Roy Cohn, Bobby Kennedy, and McCarthy's denunciation of Murrow
