Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 1, 2005 -
Â There is a new liberal voice in town taking on the ÂrantmeistersÂ of the right, who monopolize 90 percent of the airways. Barry Gordon, former president of the Screen Actors Guild and a lifelong Democrat, can be heard Sunday nights on ÂFrom Left FieldÂ over KRLA, 870 AM radio and Tuesday through Friday evenings, 9-10 p.m. on ÂNewsRapÂ airing on Channel 56 and webcast on http://www.GordonTalk.com.
The two new shows are among the few places in Los Angeles media where moderate and considered opinions can be expressed without the fear of ÂyahooÂ humiliation. Gordon treats all callers with respect.
Among the guests who have appeared since the shows began a few months ago are HarvardÂs Dr. David Himmelstein, founder of Physicians for a National Health Plan, State Senator Sheila Kuehl, author Justin Frank on his book ÂBush on the Couch,Â and former ACLU President and constitutional law expert Stephen Rohde.
Gordon began his entertainment career at age three when he appeared on the ÂTed Mack Amateur HourÂ and currently has a recurring role in HBOÂs ÂCurb Your Enthusiasm.Â He recorded ÂNuttinÂ for ChristmasÂ when he was six, still one of the top ten best-selling holiday records, was nominated for a Tony in ÂA Thousand Clowns,Â was a regular on ÂArchie BunkerÂs Place,Â and has appeared on numerous TV series.
About 15 years ago his interest moved into law and politics. He earned his law degree and immersed himself in the political arena, narrowly losing the Congressional election to entrenched Republican James Rogan by three points in 1998.
Now he is merging his entertainment and political careers as Âan island of liberal sanity in a sea of right wing wackiness.Â Tune in and get informed.
