Former Vice President and Academy Award winner Al Gore takes on the current administration's preoccupation with eroding reason and obfuscating the truth about critical issues we as Americans face. Gore's manifesto, a new book called "The Assault on Reason," states clearly that truth has taken a backseat to governing by fear. There is little time left to repair our standing in the world, and if we want to rescue the environment, national security, the economy, and social welfare, we had better move fast. Harry Shearer is the creator and host of the weekly radio show, LeShow on KCRW. His recent novel, "Not Enough Indians," is one of the funniest books of the year. He can be heard on "The Simpsons," and has had featured roles in such terrific movies as "This is Spinal Tap," "Best in Show," "The Mighty Wind," and "For Your Consideration."
