this is what it says in my book:

We use the term "witch-hunt" now to describe situations in which many people react to a fear in spite of evidence and good sense. sometimes this creates a "mob mentality" that destrys innocent people, much like the witch craze did in the 17th century. find out about a modern "witch-hunt" and write a summary of what happened. explain how television and other media can contribute to peoples' hysteria.
