History books being used in high schools and colleges still do NOT acknowledge this new scholarship on McCarthy. He is still being portrayed the way he has been since the late 1950s. The new findings are considered too unworthy of being mentioned.

I can't wait to take a look at my son's Government text for next year (H.S. senior in the Fall). If it uses "McCarthyism" in the Orwellian sense, I'll be having a friendly chat with some teachers. It's a private school, so I think I'll be reasonably well-received.
