"Maybe it's time that we talked about McCarthy's homophobia. Despite the fact that he was very close with Roy Cohen. The Cone was closeted his whole life right up into his death. In fact, As a homosexual, but also his antisemitism, which you pretty much catalog here is well on both scores. He scores highly He scores high on both scores. His relationship with Roy Cohn is intriguing on both scores. Because, as you say, Roy Cohn was closeted gay and he was Jewish and Lot of people said that McCarthy hired Roy Cohn and McCarthy himself suggested this to friends because he was getting attacked as being anti Semitic. So Roy Cohn was a fig leaf. I'm hiring a Jew, so I can't be an anti Semite. The anti The gay bashing to me was one more tragic piece of Joe McCarthy story. He would go after any easy scapegoat the new Americans would get on board with and he said he was going after gays because the fact that they had to be closeted and He said, made them vulnerable to blackmail that if a Soviet operative would find out that somebody was gay, in order to keep that secret, he would blackmail them. Well, if anybody was subject to blackmail, it was Joe McCarthy, who was an enormous gambler who was a drunk who had all kinds of things in his closet that he would never have wanted to come out. So that wasn't the reason. I think the reason he went after gaze was the same reason he went after Communists, which is they made an easy target, and he would win public support by bashing. There's even a footnote in your book that suggests he might have been a pedophile. Could you elaborate on that? So there were charges that he was there were all kinds of charges in his FBI file that the FBI investigated and said it couldn't confirm that he himself was gay and that he went to Washington as a bachelor, senator. He took him a long time in his courtship of the woman who became his wife and started out as his assistant to ever being be willing to suggest marriage and I don't have any proof that McCarthy was gay. I certainly don't have proof that he was a pedophile, and I wouldn't even want to be discussing these things because it's unfair given we have no proof except that Joe McCarthy Never gave anybody else. Any benefits of a doubt. Charges were enough for him to convict again, I guess is Larry tie his book is called Demagogue The Life Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy. And here's Diamond. Dave. Good morning, Dave. Go ahead. You're on the air that you bring me back anyway. They have course you gotta hold on ready to, so I have memories. That was a political household. Minneapolis, Minnesota in the fifties. What I remember is is the television Television with that big in the center of everything, and they form a kind of showing up five years with a house that America killer. You guys are here to have you remember coming in, and that was televised and the bed was realized that the people to get it just in that, and they're kind of boy silences with this is closed itself. Still have right primaries is south of the south of these Bases the bases of the tablets of the sciences who came up and sat in the house. That American activities Committee was you've got a long memory, and it's always good to hear from you. I haven't heard from you in a long time, but Like so many others of Dave's era, Those people were locked in front of the television set watching those McCarthy hearings just like they did Watergate and perhaps like they did the impeachment of Donald Trump. They did, and that television made all the differences they've suggested watching John McCarthy. There perform was the easiest and quickest way to rob him of the mantle of a hero, but I also want to make a sort of shameless pitch right now. That it was journalism in a big way that lifted John McCarthy up and that brought him down and I think we're here talking on public radio when it's not your fundraising drive, But I think Listener's out of support. Good journalism because the best the best firmament the best safety wall against the demagogue is having journalists point out what is true and what is made up. And that is the thing that demagogues fear most. Well, here's a question from when that kind of ties back to something you were just talking about. Hey says, Could you compare and contrast the role of the press in the McCarthy era and now? Yes. So Joe McCarthy was really brilliant at exploiting the vulnerabilities of the media. He it was no accident that he picked a place like Wheeling West Virginia to unleash that barn burner speech because he realized that if he were to make his charges against the State Department in Washington, where reporters could pick up the phone and knew just who to call on deadline at the State Department to get a response. That would be a bad way to do it for him. If he would have released the speech in the middle of the afternoon, where reporters had all day to get the other side, it would be a bad idea. So you go to an outlying burg like Wheeling, West Virginia, You give a dinner speech and you release it on deadline, where the reporters either take your version or nothing and have to go to press with it, and he knew every deadline pressure and every way to exploit the press. He charmed the press when he could do that. He attacked and blamed the press when he knew that would play and he used the media of his time. Brilliantly, much like Donald Trump 70 years later. Is using Twitter and social media and every The every sort of new incarnation of the media. Today, bullies understand how to make the media into their megaphone. And I know you did a biography of every Bernays, who was a kind of PR pioneer. You could learn a lot about how the media operates. From that biography is well on DH. One of my early boyhood heroes, Larry titled A Biography of Satchel Paige, Great African American pitcher Talking to Larry Tie. He's a journalist and author and his new book is called Demagogue the life Long shadows Senator Joe McCarthy and let's Bring Can aboard. Ken, you're on. President Truman or Eisenhower the port or try to undermine or make public statements about McCarthy. Reaction on the executives of McCarthy, I think is what he wants to know. Yes. So there was reaction behind the scenes where Eisenhower was telling his brother and all of his top aides that McCarthy was a really bad guy. But his approach and this was his approaches a general during World War two was when possible, let the enemy do themselves in and that would have been a brilliant approach, and historians applaud him for what they call the hidden hand approach. To me. It was more like the empty glove approach. It meant that for two years, McCarthy rained without any check. And the only guy who could have checked him back then the only guy with enough popularity was Eisenhower and he was missing in action is a comment from Jocelyn. A lot of memories opened up in the sours. He writes when I was five years old in San Francisco, remember my mom ironing? And listening to the McCarthy hearings and shaking her head. She explained to me what was happening at the hearings went on as the series went on, and I think that opened my mind to politics certainly opened a lot of minds. At the time and a CE faras open minds were concerned. McCarthy also had his battles with academia. Let's talk about his battle with Harvard President Nathan Pusey for a moment because there was a favorite target of his It was so Nathan Pusey had been president of Lawrence University in McCarthy's hometown of Appleton, Wisconsin. And when he was an important pillar in the community, McCarthy depended on for support. McCarthy did nothing to attack him. But Pusey was attacking McCarthy. He was raising questions about how true his charges were, and he was one of his most effective critics. The day the Pusey was named as president of Harvard. All bets were off in terms of any restraint. McCarthy went after him, Pusey became part of the Eastern establishment. That McCarthy hated and their battles were a true legend. McCarthy and his supporters referred to Harvard as Kremlin on the Charles meeting. The Charles River and It was the perfect symbol of everything. McCarthy was not just anti red. He was anti establishment in a way that agrarian populace have often been in American history..
