    In March 1950, in executive session of the Tydings Committee, Joseph McCarthy accused Lattimore of being the top Soviet agent, either in the US, in the State Department, or both.[17] The committee, chaired by Senator Millard Tydings, was investigating McCarthy's claims of widespread Soviet infiltration of the State Department. When the accusation was leaked to the press, McCarthy backed off from the charge that Lattimore was a spy but continued the attack in public session of the committee and in speeches.
    This isn't revisionism. McCarthy, like the blovating **** he was - accused an innocent man of being a communist spy and then had to eat his words. I'm not surprised you'd stick up for him though. Anything to be an ignorant contrarian right apdst?

    Sorry, conservatives, you made your bed on this one. Ironic, isn't it.

    In any case, this all sounds like a Hannityville story -- pure hokum.

    This is from your source, hatuey...

    Meanwhile, accusations were made, which later became public. On 14 December 1948, Alexander Barmine, former chargé d'affaires at the Soviet Embassy in Athens, Greece, advised Federal Bureau of Investigation agents that Soviet GRU Director Janis Berzin had informed him prior to Barmine's 1937 defection that Lattimore was a Soviet agent, an allegation Barmine would repeat under oath before the Senate McCarran Committee in 1951
    Who's ignorant, now?

    Why don't you bitch about Pat McCarran? Oh...wait...McCarran was a Democrat!

    Now I guess if she wasn't explicitly told, she might have some reason to ask for a reconsideration. But really - this is something everyone should know by now.
    yes, but she didn't seek out the media, she was doing her job, answering a phone call.

    I didn't say I wanted her to win, just that I hoped she would sue, and for the 15,056,456th time I am not a "conservative" I am an anti-federalist. States can be as glittery gay lesbian liberalish as they want for all I care

This lady should have known that. Hannity giving her charity is nothing more than trying to make up for being the asshole who egged her into getting fired. All so he could get media ratings and a paycheck from sponsors.
    her job is to give out information, that's what she did.
    Granted it wasn't what her superiors wanted her to say, but she was doing her job

    it does happen, but she is kind of a customer service rep, or possily a liason type position.

    When someone calls in for info - she either could have shut up (not really doing her job) or provided it. She was sumarily fired for talking to the media, and it isn't clear if she really know that was beyond her responsibility.

    The way she was fired ( if it's to believed, and absent other info is all we have) is a damning as the firing itself

    Yeah, conservatives love tort lawyers when it serves their purposes. Thanks for admitting another disingenuous rightiwing argument.

    In any case, this is Hannity. It's probably all fake and snopes will expose it in a week or two. That's how the rightwing noise machine works -- put out fake news and hope nobody can expose it for a while.

    edit: and I listened to the call btw. I knew she was going to be fired as soon as Hannity mentioned that he was calling.

    For those who don't know, every call center I've ever been to or had friends work at mentioned that there's no talking to the media or allowing for the recording of phone calls. This woman was denser than a brick if she thinks that it was appropriate to talk to the media.
    No. a call center cannot disallow a recording of a phone call, just like the caller has to give permission to record "for quality assurance" granted it may vary by state law.

    Talking to the media would have to be part of the Standards of Proceedure, and she would have had to had a clear understanding she was in violation.
    This doesn't appear to be the case? Although that is unclear
