Ed Asner has won more Emmys (7) and been nominated for more Emmys (20) than any other actor in TV history. He’s also used his long career and huge fame in the name of countless progressive causes, from working for unions to fighting for single-payer health care in America. At the height of his success, during the run of the CBS drama series “Lou Grant,” he was canceled even as the show was still a Top Ten hit – because he wouldn’t stop speaking out against Reagan’s Central American policies. Asner joined Ernie Powell and “The Campaign” for a look at his life, career, and bold political stands in a very special episode.
