Abstract
From 1991 until 2018, Jerry Spinger, the son of Jewish refugees from the Holocaust, was the host of a "circus-like syndicated talk show featuring feuding couples, angry exes and frequent fisticuffs." In response to criticism, including from British rabbis, Springer apologized for his tabloid-style daytime television program. Prior to his television program, Springer was politically involved. He worked on the presidential campaign of Robert F. Kennedy, ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress and was elected to Cincinnati’s City Council in 1971. In 1977, he served for a year as the mayor of Cincinnati. Click on the link to read the article.
