The article focuses on developments in the political circles of the U.S. It seems it wasn't the Republican voters, as, one supposed, who sent political leader John McCarthy to Washington. It wasn't the "Republican press that headlined his charges. It wasn't the Republican Minority Leader who advised him that if one charge was disproved to go on to the next. It wasn't the Republican Presidential candidate who grasped his hand and called for his re-election. These things were done by the liberals. This hitherto unsuspected chapter in American history is revealed by "Time," the weekly news magazine. It explains: "The liberals saw in his distortions and exaggerations a chance to divert attention from the bedroom scene."
