Episode Summary

EDIT
March 6, 1980
AIRED:

Host Tom Snyder's guests are actor and activist Dick Gregory discusses fasting as a means of protest and its health benefits. He comments on the brilliance of many American convicts, the frantic pace of modern living (citing penises and sexual discharges to illustrate his point) and racial and sexual equality. He comments we're ready to jump on Iran but not on Russia because they can fight back. He believes the Afghanistan crisis was staged by The U.S. and Russia to wipe out Islam. He calls the grain embargo a joke because it involves pig food. He claims Andrew Young was the scapegoat for the P.L.O. issue. Nat Hentoff, author of "The First Freedom: A Tumultuous History of Free Speech in America" discusses the first amendment and how it has been violated from its inception. He says people were arrested for writing negatively about John Q. Adams. He says we need the right not to be secretly investigated by the FBI or CIA for activities that are our legal right. He says the CIA is trying to pass a charter that would let them invade privacy legally so they could screen mail, tap phones and bug homes.
