Larry King asked questions that made me think he just didn't get it. Like why didn't she ask them to stop killing, why she didn't run away after the first night of killings, why she didn't call the police during the Tate murders, etc. King was around during the time. I don't know if he just has writers who don't know better questions to ask or what. He didn't ask any sent-in questions (I sent in a few for Kasabian) ...of course unless he used them without giving credit. Last time I send in questions to the Larry King show!
Deborah Tate spoke with Larry for the last 25 minutes of the show. I found out something new: Larry said he interviewed Sharon Tate just a few weeks before the murders. Deborah expressed her doubts that Susan Atkins has terminal brain cancer, saying that if that were so she wouldn't have made it this long.
I think it could have been better overall. Larry should have showed the clip of himself interviewing Sharon Tate. I wish Kasabian would have given longer answers.

He was the mastermind of the most notorious murders in U.S. history, a crazed guru who terrified the world and plunged the city of Los Angeles into a state of paranoia and panic.
This feature-length docudrama from HISTORY takes viewers deep inside Charles Manson's twisted world of hate, fear, and mind control to tell the story of how one man transformed a harmless group of hippies into a gang of brutal murderers.
Intertwining first-person accounts with rare archive footage, Manson looks back at the nine months leading up to and including the brutal murder of Sharon Tate, the Manson family's most famous victim, four decades after her bludgeoning. It features key Manson family member Linda Kasabian, who was at the scene of the Sharon Tate murders as lookout and getaway driver, in her first interview in 20 years, as well as interviews with fellow Manson family member Catherine Share; Vincent Bugliosi, the lead prosecutor who wrote Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders; and Deborah Tate, Sharon Tate's sister.
I'll be sure to catch it! Mark your calendars.
