Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for December 26, 1979
Voice from television: Mr. Afshar, what is the student reaction to persistent reports that the long embassy siege is creating enormous academic pressures on them? Man: This we would denounce as the vicious lies of the Shah's agents. Most of us have had no problem at all in keeping up with our studies. Morale is high. Frisbees are seen often in the courtyards. Extensions for papers are freely granted by Khomeini himself. Voice: With what provisos? Man: None. The imam was once young himself. Voice: NBC News reminds its viewers this could be propaganda.
