RIP Larry King (1933-2021)

Spin (1995)

Larry King was an American talk show host iconic in the 1990s. He was called the father of talk show democracy and was instrumental in the development of infotainment.

His whole era is captured by the superb documentary Spin.

In that documentary, he can be seen talking to G. W. Bush on the merits of the drug Halcion at 5:40.
