Did we ever find out if Murrow had more than sympathy for communists?
To: John Filson
Although McCarthy is charged with a failure to distinguish between liberals and Communists, it was generally liberals, Herman points out, who couldnt recognize the differences. It was Franklin Roosevelt, after all, who brought Alger Hiss to Yalta and Harry Truman who promoted Harry Dexter White to head the International Monetary Fund. Both Truman and Roosevelt entrusted these Soviet agents with top positions long after they had been told that Hiss and White were involved in espionage
Then I'm proud to be in the same company as ole Joe, because I've never been able to distinguish liberals from communist either.
