Jon Weissman: Columnist duped by ghost of McCarthy

Published: 9/8/2019 11:00:08 PM

In his column on “The Sovietization of America,” David Zimicki says that I have been duped by “free-ranging Soviet ideas” from years ago, since I believe that corporations engage in exploitation, imperialism, inordinate sway on democracy and relentless pollution, among a host of other conclusions simply based on current reality.

Sounds like he’s been duped by the ghost of Joe McCarthy.
