The McCarthy hearings influenced the writing of Arthur Miller.
Senator Joseph McCarthy was famous for the hearings he held into alleged Communist infiltration into American society, including the government and Hollywood. His hearings ruined a lot of lives, and he was ruthless in dealing with witnesses. Edward R. Murrow was a reporter who saw the damage McCarthy was doing and had the courage to cover the story in order to reveal McCarthy for the demagogue he was. (For another good movie on the damage McCarthy's hearings did, watch The Front, in which Woody Allen plays a writer who fronts for TV and movie writers who were blacklisted.)
