Truth of Consequences

March 1976
National Review;3/5/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 7, p201
The article criticizes the behavior and testimony given by U.S. celebrity and heiress Patty Hearst in 1976 regarding her experiences as a kidnap victim and her subsequent revolutionary activities. She acted differently from the woman who was captured by U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation officers in September 1975. The testimony given by Hearst is allegedly well-rehearsed but implausible. Hearst is described as someone who usually gets what she wants, but there was nothing to help her resist the influence of her captors.
