The New York Post obtained Frost’s FBI file and discovered the agency once even planted an undercover agent in Frost’s studio audience.
Guests that got the feds’ attention included Johnson-era Attorney General Ramsey Clark, economist John Kenneth Galbraith and black nationalist Stokely Carmichael among others, according to the 45-page dossier obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
Other Frost guests on the FBI’s radar included folkie Joan Baez and Sen. Edmund Muskie, both critics of the Vietnam War, and Nixon Attorney General John Mitchell, who praised the bureau, the FBI memos revealed.
Perhaps the most bizarre guest to come under the feds scrutiny was “Viva” – aka Susan Hoffman – an actor described in one FBI memo as an “Andy Warhol ‘superstar’ [who] has been the featured female performer in many of his films.”
