The article focuses on the speculations associated with the reason given by U.S. President Ronald Reagan at a press conference for not attending the funeral of General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and Soviet Head of State Leonid Ilich Brezhnev. Many including U.S. columnist Anthony Lewis believe that it is the feeling of McCarthyism on the part of Reagan that hindered him from being present at the funeral of Brezhnev.
