About this title


Interviews with celebrities attempt to discover the reasons they campaign for issues and candidates, and what are the effects of their political endorsements

From Publishers Weekly:

Why have celebrated actors, athletes and musicians become publicly involved with politics, and what political roles do they play? To answer these questions, documentary film producer/screenwriter/journalist Sherman traveled around America and talked with Charlton Heston, Ed Asner, John Randolph and other performers; political organizer Robert Squier; presidential candidate Bruce Babbitt; TV newsman Sam Donaldson; rock music producer David Krebs; and Congressman Fred ("Gopher") Grandy of Iowa. Among the questions he asked are: How do the media present politics? Are the media liberal or conservative? How do different TV talk shows treat politicians and celebrities? The answers are worth pondering. Among Sherman's conclusions: Ronald Reagan and Jane Fonda are alike in highhandedly insisting that their individual, limited visions encompass the "essence of the grander truth." The book is instructive reading for concerned citizens; required reading for people in politics. Photos not seen by PW.
