BIAS by Bernard Goldberg

Bernie states the obvious in this book. The book is ten years old and although the truth of it is generally seen in all quarters, even today it is still ignored or denied by Bernie’s old friends in the main stream media. Goldberg himself confesses that he has been a lifetime voter on the left side of the ticket. As a journalist however, he is willing to speak out regarding the fact that a liberal bias is the mindset of most of our media elite. He tried many times to show the need for a less slanted view of the news from within the machinery of CBS but finally resorted to writing and editorial article on the subject in the Wall Street Journal. His career at CBS was doomed. They blackballed him right away. Then dabbled with him for a while and finally let him retire with his pension. I highly recommend this book not because of the obvious truth of it but that we may better understand why the elite of the media continue as they do. They honestly do not think that they are leftists. To understand that statement, you must read the explanation in the words of a career liberal journalist who only wants people to face the facts.
