chalket: Yes it was real, there were and still are communists influencing the media, music and movies. Their groups have different names now, but they're commies at heart.

Yes, spies are real but the McCarthyism "Red Scare" was not.

chalket: Problem is FBI & KGB files from that time actually confirm that there was a "Red Menace". And we found out several Red Chinese spies just recently.

It's not paranoia if they really are out to get you.

There were many anxious phone calls made by people getting panicky over the War of the Worlds broadcast, but only annecdotes about people doing more than pick up the phone. The press wildly exagerated and flat out made stuff up; thank god today's media would never do that.

The Mad Gasser was real, not hysteria. They never caught the guy, but he is believed to be Farley Llewellyn a chemistry student studying at the University of Illinois at the time.
