Bill Press - From the Left: A Life in the Crossfire

Radio show host Bill Press returns to Point Reyes to discuss his memoir, From the Left: A Life in the Crossfire, at this event benefiting West Marin Standing Together and Indivisible West Marin

The name Bill Press is synonymous with honest journalism, intelligent commentary, and progressive politics.

But based on where he came from, it’s a wonder he didn’t end up a Trump voter. He grew up in a blue-collar family in a small town in Delaware south of the Mason-Dixon line, where segregation was the rule.

So what went right for him that he swerved so far to the left?

In From the Left, Press shows this gradual transformation, starting with two years of studies in Europe and a providential escape to California. From Sacramento he made his way to Southern California television and talk radio as a political commentator and liberal talk show host. Jumping to Washington and national cable TV, Press hosted Crossfire and The Spin Room on CNN, and Buchanan and Press on MSNBC. A member of the White House Press Corps and columnist for Tribune Media Services and The Hill, Press was an early supporter of Bernie Sanders and hosted two of the Senator’s first presidential strategy sessions in his living room.

 

Indivisible West Marin is focused on stopping our federal government from harming people and the environment.  Indivisible West Marin is also focusing on the 2018 elections, working on flipping red states to blue.

West Marin Standing Together exists to speak out and take action on behalf of the planet, the environment, of economic and social justice, and of the democratic traditions of our country
