Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A TV columnist (Peter Haskell) famous for twisting words to get a juicier story begins to date Mary (Mary Tyler Moore). Flattered by the attention, Mary opens up to the columnist, telling her all about herself and life in the WJM-TV newsroom. Alas, Mary reveals a little too much -- and no one is particularly pleased when the inevitable "warts and all" article hits the stands. "What Is Mary Richards Really Like?" was first broadcast on September 23, 1972.
