ABSTRACT
The article comments on the opinion of U.S. television showman Phil Donahue on the hostage crisis in Iran in 1980. The salient asset of Donahue is probably his personal amiability, but his usefulness is as a remarkably reliable index of what it is that people are concerned about. In the meantime, it is overdue for U.S. President Jimmy Carter to say that the survival of the hostages will cease to the coordinating aim of U.S. foreign policy. Donahue made several proposals to address the hostage crisis.
