    Who is a roadman really? What's wrong with calling someone a 'lighty'? Why do people think black guys are cool?

    Accused of creating a bogus Red scare and smearing countless innocent victims in a five-year reign of terror, Senator Joseph McCarthy is universally remembered as a demagogue, a bully, and a liar. History has judged him such a loathsome figure that even today, a half-century after his death, his name remains synonymous with witch hunts. But that conventional image is all wrong, as veteran journalist and author M. Stanton Evans reveals in this groundbreaking book.

    Since the presidential election, hundreds of companies have decided to block their advertisements from running on Breitbart News, the alt-right website closely tied to President Donald Trump’s administration. But several of those brands, from the Nordstrom department store chain to small startups, have appeared on the site anyway, another example of how little control companies often have over where their ads are seen online.

    "Breitbart, Blacklisted, Still Hosts Brands’ Ads" is from the March 26, 2017 Business section of The New York Times. It was written by Sapna Maheshwari and narrated by Caroline Miller.
