Milo Radulovich Dies:

The former Air Force lieutenant, whose case many say helped end the communist hunt in America led by Sen. Joe McCarthy in the 1950s, died last week in California at age 81. As the Los Angeles Times reports, famed TV newsman Edward R. Murrow aired the story of Milo Radulovich, who faced expulsion from the Air Force Reserve as the object of a McCarthy-instigated probe into Radulovich’s family. According to long-time journalist Daniel Schorr, a National Public Radio commentator, “The downfall of Joe McCarthy began with the Radulovich story as told by Murrow and [producer Fred] Friendly.”
