This video is getting a lot of play today. It's an NBC compilation of highlights from Snyder's "Tomorrow" show. Snyder's show followed NBC's "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson" from 1973 to 1982, when it went off the air and was replaced by David Letterman.
In that NBC compilation, he talks about homosexuality with Elton John; marijuana with Cheech and Chong; fear with Alfred Hitchcock; and guilt with Charles Manson. Muhammad Ali gave him the Howard Cosell treatment, but Howard Cosell's own charges -- that Mr. Snyder was a network stooge -- were beaten back in an uncharacteristically furious way. "I work for the people of America, that's who I work for."
