The “Hottest Book in the Country!”
Even if you’ve suspected your nightly news is slanted to the left, it’s far worse than you think. In this jaw-dropping expos?, Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist Bernard Goldberg reveals a corporate news culture in which the close-mindedness is breathtaking, and journalistic integrity has been pawned to liberal opinion.
In his three decades as a reporter and producer at CBS, Goldberg repeatedly voiced his concerns to network executives about the often one-sided nature of the news coverage. But no one listened to his complaints — or if they did listen, they did nothing about the problem. Finally, Goldberg had no choice but to blow the whistle on his own industry, to break the code of silence that pervades the news business. “Bias” is the result.
As the author reveals, “liberal bias” doesn’t mean simply being hard on Republicans and easy on Democrats. Real media bias is the result of how those in the media see the world — and their bias directly affects how we all see the world. In “Bias”, the #1 New York Times Best-seller, you’ll learn:
BONUS: Complete texts of the op-eds, plus samples of congratulatory mail about the op-ed from secret sympathizers within the news industry
If you ever suspected the network news was shortchanging the truth, Bernard Goldberg will not only prove you right, he’ll give you a glimpse of just how it’s done, and how fairness, balance, and integrity have disappeared from network television.
“The allegation of liberal bias in the media is not a new one. However, in this book the allegation is made not by a conservative but by a reporter for CBS News — an old-fashioned liberal who has seen the bias firsthand. Bernard Goldberg has written a courageous book and told a story that needed to be told.” —William J. Bennett
“A fearless and vitally important book. In exposing the bottomless intellectual corruption within his own industry, Bernard Goldberg does what so many in the mainstream press only pretend to do: he tells the truth without regard to personal consequences. Colleagues will surely accuse Goldberg of treachery, and worse. But it is he, not they, who upholds journalism’s finest traditions.” —Harry Stein, author of How I Accidentally Joined the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy (and Found Inner Peace)
“Bernie Goldberg is dead on. The astonishing distrust of the news media is rotted in the daily clash of worldviews between reporters and their readers and viewers. ‘Bias is the elephant in the living room,’ said one critic of the news business. After Bernie Goldberg’s book, it will be harder not to notice the elephant.” —John Leo, columnist, U.S. News & World Report
