Don Wolfberg : He's never killed anyone . . so apparently females aren't responsible for their own actions

Lawrenzho BB : god. I just wanna punch snyder in his face

Jules L : It's sad when Charlie Manson, a genius maniac, is more likable than Tom Snyder the little boy trying to wear big boy pants.

Santos D : This Tom Snyder idiot seems to think we're more interested in watching him scold Manson than in hearing what Manson has to say. They should have left him alone with Charley in his prison cell for the night, see how smug he'd remain.

Brian Dorsey : Am I crazy or is Charlie making sense here?

Echo Girl : 5:22 "Did you kill Shay?" "Hell no!" "Did you cut the Hindman's ear off?" "Hell.....yes"

Am : "Sometimes I feel I am scared to live. Living is what scares me, dying is easy. Getting up everyday and going through this again and again is hard" - Charles Manson

Christian Grey : "I'm playing for my life, you're working for money" - Charles Manson

The Great Imposter : The most interesting part of the interview is that Tom didn't deny that he played Cricket in high school.

Tim Andrews : This is a most-interesting cigarette commercial.

whipchick4ever : The interviewer doesn't even listen. He's aggressive! He sounds more crazy than Manson does.

I AM LWDGNG : A simpleton trying to interview a mind far beyond.

TheEgyptianOne : at 27:36 the interviewer smiled at manson's joke and when he noticed the camera was on him, he put on his fake serious face LMFAO

Antonio : I wish I could smoke a blunt with Charles. the conversations..

Kmi Wnger : if you got out of here tomorrow would you go after anybody? "-yeah, I'd come after you man" 😂😂😂😂😂😂

roisindubh02 : Was this an interview or an argument?

Jeshua XL Collins : Call me crazy but I understand what he's talking about

Brandon Walsh : Charles Manson makes the interviewer look like an idiot here.

Drew lfc : Wow tom Snyder reminds me of natural born killers, trying so hard to get the tag line that sound bite, he if you listern gets more aggressive with his questions or the wording of them then Manson does, he is desperate for Manson to scream I'm an evil motherfu...... The true evil is the media who feed us all our diet of hate, Manson was and is just a product of that,

TheGodEmperorofMankind : the interviewer thinks he's a 1950's film star.

Don Wolfberg : is it possible that he's not so deep/non-linear (really you'll just notice he takes words very literally) - is it possible that just drugged by the prison/media interests prior to these interviews? . . otherwise he's just guilty of being a very poetic man

Jennifer Hofland : Word have turkey in the sky!

karl Andersson : Who the hell is Tom Snyder, Very unprofessional it seems. Dont make a serious impression at all, He does not seem to be after any sort of information here really, mostly just provocative trying to get a reaction out of Mr Manson.

c : he's interesting. he's had to fend for himself his entire life.

Jeshua XL Collins : I Really Don't Think He Murdered Those People

Jacqueline Dos Santos : Such an interesting man. Wish I could have a conversation with him. All my psych patients are my favorite, I wish I could dig into their brain and try to understand them fully.

Brian Potter : Mob bosses that have people killed, don't get as much time as Manson. This smells of a cover up......

Russell Goulding : Tom Snyder cracks me up. By golly we're going to get to the bottom of you Charlie Manson if it takes me a carton of cigarettes!

CLuv : I find it hilarious that Manson made the guy look stupid with that playboy thing lol somewere around 23 minutes

Occupy My Life : R.I.P Charles Manson

Jim Tuna : Charlie for president better then Hilary and trump

razorv32005 : Nope, not crazy at all. Charles Manson makes alot of fucking sense! It's just that society is setup a certain way and if you go against how society is setup, things will be very hard for you. You have to be able to read between the lines. You have to be a person that can actually think for yourself. Most people want to fit in, want to be a part of the group, want to be accepted by everyone. It takes alot to be able to stand alone and have your own way of thinking. Most people don't think for themselves. Tv, radio, and media and news does all the thinking for them.

John Doe : interviewer is trying to make him look dumb

Dean PD : What an idiot Snyder is. Manson was taking him to the Bobby story because it was relevant. Terrible interviewer.

Joshinator60 : I know what charles manson did was terrible, but I can't help but feel bad for him. He is so mentally unstable, it makes me feel bad for him. In no way, shape or form am I trying to say what he did is justified by his insanity, but still it makes me feel bad.

Darth J : Certain people on here are calling Manson a "Genius". I ask you, where is the genius in nonsense ramblings, murdering other human beings, inciting others to commit murder, and then acting like you're enjoying your multiple life sentences in prison? Not to mention hes a satanist. I fail to see any genius in that. Just because the guy tries to talk like he's above the system doesn't make him a genius. I think insane is a more accurate term.

Dirk Heeres : 15:25 - 15:46 holy shit

Brian Monahan : He does have an argument though. They call him guilty, but they never really say, guilty of brainwashing. They say guilty of murder.

Mo Barrett : 27:36 Holy shit, he charmed Snyder here. He really cracked a smile, and he was really lost in Manson's story here! Then a second later he collects himself. Wow. There's nothing but a hurt little boy in Manson. People react differently to their circumstances...we are prone to act and react a certain way based on our predisposed personalities...I wonder if Manson had a normal childhood, if that would have made his outcome any different. After all, Bundy had a seemingly normal chidlhood...he blamed his addiction to pornography. But then again, he was very vulnerable to violence. Porn basically switched him off to human emotions...really ineresting stuff. Anyways...

Who did this? : This guy just cant let him finish a single sentence. "Uh let me interrupt you" And the story goes off the rail many times in the middle. How am I supposed to understand anything he wants to tell??

davefan16 : This isn't an interview, just an asshat being provocative in order to get a rise out of the guy

Kmi Wnger : worst interviewer ever.

Joshua : Interviewer: "How old are you in your world?" Charles Manson: "Umm...forever, since breakfast". What an answer.

notsosilentmajority1 : Tom Snyder ruined the interview. Manson looks like the smarter of the two. Sad.

A R C A N E : Interesting, he said he did mushrooms, acid, peyote, all of which are psychedelics and can be powerful spiritual experiences

marishana meyer : Manson is a dirty hippie who gathered a band of losers round him, and from the comment section below there are still losers who admire him.

Jack Marti : It's scary that there are people who are otherwise fairly rational, who could listen to this maniac, and think anything he says makes any sense. He may have a few rational sounding thoughts here and there, but he is obviously a very sick man who needs to be taken care of. He is intensely interesting, but completely insane!

rex kars : I remember this interview when it first aired. The magic of youTube and the digital age! I thought then as now, Charlie is a side show and completely full of sh_t

wingzerox100 : Charles Manson is such a genius. He just got into too much trouble. This guy's way of thinking is just insane. I feel he should be free he has done his time.

mrpinkroo : Interesting man. I wouldn't want to be around him. I've met people similar to him. They have a manner about them which is intriguing and interesting, but, something is always off about them. I'm not surprised so many beautiful women throw themselves at him. I think even after so many years even his old "children" would love him again if they were put together again..........With enough LSD.
