Interview with Darryl Cherney on challenging "Mythbusters" to bust their own Frank Doyle

Paul Roland interviews Darryl Cherney, Earth First! activist and producer of the documentary "Who Bombed Judi Bari?". On the occasion of the 23rd anniversary of the as-yet unsolved 1990 carbombing which injured Cherney and almost killed Judi Bari, a challenge is being issued to the Discovery Channel program "Mythbusters" to bust a myth about their own cast member, bomb-maker and retired FBI agent Frank Doyle. In a May 8 letter to Mythbusters, Cherney wrote, "We challenge Mythbusters to confirm or bust a long-held assertion that Frank Doyle can be heard on FBI video footage taken at the scene of the car bombing, chuckling and making the chilling statement, 'This is the final exam.' We know that Doyle, at minimum, covered up the tracks of someonewho tried to assassinate one of the most prominent, rising environmental stars in our nation's history."
