Can you outsmart the fallacy that started a witch hunt?
It's 1950. Anti-communist sentiment in the United States is at an all-time high. Senator Joseph McCarthy claims he has a list of communists who are influencing government policy.

Elizabeth Cox explores the burden of proof fallacy. [Directed by Pazit Cahlon and Hector Herrera, narrated by Jack Cutmore-Scott, music by Massassauga].
