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

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

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

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

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

Wes Hughes : Holy fuck, the news used to be... The news...

roisindubh02 : Was this an interview or an argument?

Jim Tuna : Charlie for president better then Hilary and trump

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,

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.

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

Jennifer Hofland : Word have turkey in the sky!

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!

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.

Yosef Leon : The interviewer is so incredibly stupid he has NO idea in what symbolic philisophical term in which Charles speaks. The ignorance in this is amazing.

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

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

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.

Nicki Mnj : Haha I love Charlie for asking the interviewer back if he's innocent and only because he wasn't convicted in a courtroom doesn't mean that he's innocent. That was really good. The interviewer is so annoying he's trying to be cool or something like that.

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

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

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!

Family Matters : Charles Manson is no genius and he's no murderer.

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

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

artist quality : how many times was he cut off.., hes a very poor interviewer

Matthew Dean : The interviewer is an antagonist, rude idiot.

JuicePouch : This interviewer dude seems like an asshole.

Julian Hobday : This interviewer has a brain the size of a peanut

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.

Metropolis Noir : Shitty interview. Provoking Charles just to try n get him angry instead of letting him tell his stories. Lame

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

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.

MR B : i am wise to one thing.. whats that charles well im not gonna tell you LOL

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??

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...

Clinton Satriani : I do not believe that Manson is crazy and I also do not believe, that he committed the crimes, that he was accused and convected of. Though, I'm sure he is guilty of something. I think he is an extremely intelligent man and most people can not understand him. He speeks with examples and in a manner of riddles but I believe he is very clear minded. As in not being crazy. If you study his story and have some of it memorized, you can catch on to some of his riddles. I realize enough of that to believe, that the more story you know, the more he would make sense to you ( 'you', being anyone listening to him). Though he does screw around in his interviews (probably because he knows, that no one will listen or believe him anyway) I just think he is a really intelligent and very eccentric person. Probably not a murderer... I'm not saying that he hasn't killed anyone, I do not know that answer but killing someone, does not make you a "murderer". As in the mindset of , A person can paint a picture and not be an "artist".

zb : all it is is tom snyder insulting the guy for an hour. this is more of a roast than an interview. also i like how at the beginning he's justifying the interview by saying it's some kind of important thing for society to interview him, like he's not just exploiting some psychopath for ratings

Cameron Pearson : Tom Snyder seems more psychotic than Charlie

Nicole Elizabeth : The interviewer ruined the entire interview, I can't even watch it.

WonkaVator72 : A lot of what Charlie says doesn't seem to make sense. I'm beginning to think that there's something wrong with him. ;-).

Susanna : The interviewer doesn't even let hem finish his sentence jesus christ

Nukeshi : Insane or not, Charles Manson seems like a reasonably intelligent guy. The interviewer on the other hand sounds extremely dumb and rude. I thought the purpose of an interview was to let the person being interviewed actually talk..?

Brian Potter : I think that Manson is nuts, but I don't think he told them people to go out and kill. Their all sitting around tripping on Acid and everything else, I think he may have went on a rant about society, and these kids who were angry and tripping went and done it.

Erik Guerrero : i think this man is a victim forreal he has all odds against him he speaks with a bit of intelligence uses words you don't hear off of the typical crack head i just feel like the roughness of his life is what and why he seams to be a bit crazy. i mean wouldn't you become a bit physco if you go through what this man went through

gregory alderete : smart man

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

KOKOMO JOE : Manson a pompous prophesier of nonsense

Sean Renzi : Asshole Snyder, he asks 4 more questions in a row after Charles try to respond. You can't conduct an interview like that

T.D. Newsh : Is it crazy that I find him fascinating?
