Here is my best explanation:

'peer' is the definition.
(earl is a kind of peer)

'attention given to liberal' is the wordplay.
'attention' becomes 'ear' (ear is a kind of attention).
'given to' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'liberal' becomes 'l' (abbreviation).
'ear'+'l'='EARL'
