It is the practice of making unfair allegations or using unfair investigative techniques, especially in order to restrict dissent or political criticism.

During the Cold War era many Americans were afraid that communists were on the verge of taking over the U.S. government. Senator Joseph McCarthy was an ardent anti-communist who rose to national prominence in the 1950s. McCarthy and his committee accused thousands of Americans of being Communists. Such accusations did enormous harm to people's reputations and careers.
