Former CBS News correspondent and Fox News analyst Bernard Goldberg ran through a list of polls showing President Trump "embarrassed" America, then championed a column by never-Trumper Bret Stephens in The New York Times challenging Trump backers: "If the president were to sexually assault a woman in the Oval Office tomorrow, would you still justify your vote on the view that Neil Gorsuch's elevation to the Supreme Court made it all worthwhile?"
Appearing on Fox News’s O’Reilly Factor Monday night, media analyst Bernie Goldberg ripped President Obama’s address to nation on terrorism and argued that even members of the liberal media would start to abandon the commander-in-chief: “There are people in the media who have a lot invested in Barack Obama and they're not gonna throw him under the bus. But when Barack Obama makes you look foolish by defending him, that's another story.”
Tuesday Night on The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly and Bernie Goldberg discussed the ‘morality play’ created by NBC's Harry Smith on the Syrian refugee crisis, complete with Bible verses, as was previously documented on NewsBusters. Smith had tried to compare the Japanese internment with the refugee crisis. Bernie set fire to the idea when he said, “He [President Roosevelt] only interned Japanese Americans, and let's emphasize they were Americans, because they weren't white."
For the second time in a week, Fox News Channel (FNC) host Bill O’Reilly turned to statistics from the “very accurate” Media Research Center to form the basis of a segment of The O’Reilly Factor concerning the major broadcast network coverage of the Planned Parenthood scandal with Thursday’s mention comparing it with the droves of coverage given to the shooting death of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe.
On Thursday’s edition of The O’Reilly Factor on the Fox News Channel, host Bill O’Reilly cited statistics complied by the Media Research Center to lambast the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC for their minuscule coverage of the Planned Parenthood video scandal which O’Reilly and guest Bernie Goldberg found to be yet another sign that “[l]iberal philosophy dominates” the news media.
Reacting to the media coverage thus far of the deadly church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, Fox News contributor Bernard Goldberg joined Thursday’s O’Reilly Factor on the Fox News Channel and eviscerated the liberal media for having “a long, detestable history” of using instances of innocent lives being senselessly lost “as an opportunity to bash conservative media.”
Picking up on comedian Jerry Seinfeld’s concern “there’s a creepy PC thing out there” on college campuses in which comedians are condemned for jokes which convey stereotypes, Bernard Goldberg called out Seinfeld for failing to recognize liberals are behind the “authoritarian” speech code.
On his Thursday night show, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly observed that Hillary Clinton was not very well liked by the liberal base of the Democratic Party or the media: "I'm not sure that liberal Americans really like Hillary Clinton, alright? And I know that even though most of the liberal national press wants her to win because they hate Republicans, they don't much like her either. Am I wrong?" Bernie Goldberg argued that her likeability was irrelevant: "It doesn't matter either whether they like her or not. What does matter, what is important, is that they like her a lot more than they like any of the Republican candidates."
Fox News contributors Bernard Goldberg and Charles Krauthammer appeared on separate Fox News Channel (FNC) programs on Thursday to weigh in on the controversy surrounding NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams severe case of lying with Goldberg declaring it “a special kind of lie” Williams committed and Krauthammer remarking that “what stuns me is how dumb this is.”
Former CBS newsman Bernard Goldberg wrote about a moment on last Sunday’s Meet the Press and called it “Chuck Todd and the Rosetta Stone of Media Bias.” It was all in the introductions to the panel of guests. Why is it that the conservative is routinely identified as a conservative, but the liberals are given no label at all, no matter how liberal they might be?
Appearing on Fox News's O'Reilly Factor Tuesday night, media analyst Bernard Goldberg praised reporter Sharyl Attkisson for calling out the liberal bias of her former employer, CBS News, in her upcoming book. He then lamented the difficultly in ending such bias: "But here's why the problem is not going to go away. Even if top management wants to eliminate this liberal bias, there are too many producers and reporters in important positions at all the networks who are liberal, and who let their liberalism affect their journalism."
“I say the poll is ridiculous,” Bernard Goldberg declared on Monday’s O’Reilly Factor in doubting the accuracy of a survey in which 28 percent of journalists self-identified as Democrats and 50 percent claimed to be independents.
Goldberg was willing to buy that a mere seven percent of the press corps are Republican, “but only 28 percent of journalists say they’re Democrats and 50 percent say they’re independents? Impossible.” He predicted that, in reality, if injected with truth serum, “about 85 percent would admit that they voted for Barack Obama twice.”
