The allegations of liberal bias is not a new one,however, this author did reval some rather disturbing facts ( at least as he saw them) about our news reporting. Interesting, but somewhat disturbing in spots.
DreamSE22 reviewed Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News on
I didn't care for this book at all...although Goldberg had some interesting points, it seemed like he just wrote this book for revenge on his former co-workers, contrary to what he says regarding that belief. When I have watched the evening news, I really don't care what reporter's viewpoints are, even if the way they deliver the news is supposed to influence how the viewers think. In fact, I think TV news is so full of unimportant fluff that I stick to reading news on websites instead. Bernard Goldberg makes such a big point of talking about the politics behind the scenes of the news world, but that doesn't surprise me, as there are politics behind nearly every line of major work or corporation. Dan Rather being a two-faced old-fashioned fuddy-duddy is not a new concept to me. :)
As good as I thought Goldberg's book Bias was, Arrogance is even better. If you think that the bias in news programs or in the paper is limited to how they handle politicians, read this. It will open your eyes to the many ways the public is being "handled" by the media.
