The Media's Role in the Escalation of Palmer Raids and the Red Scare in America

To understand how the media escalated the Red Scare and Palmer Raids it helps to have a brief history of them.  After World War I there was a Red Scare among many Americans.  There are many explanations for this: rampant inflation, a tough job market, strikes, race riots, and the public’s need f...   [tags: American America History]
