#1 New York Times and award-winning journalist Bernard Goldberg takes on the arrogance that skews much of mainstream media towards the political left.
In his #1 New York Times bestseller, Bias, Emmy Award-winning journalist Bernard Goldberg created a national firestorm when he exposed the liberal biases of the so-called mainstream media. Now Goldberg takes on Big Journalism and punctures the bubble in which the media elites live and work–a culture of denial where contrary views are not welcome. With blistering wit and passion, Goldberg offers a twelve-step program to help journalists overcome their addiction to slanted news and exposes the main culprits of arrogance in the media. He reveals: How the media’s coverage of the Jayson Blair scandal missed far more serious problems at the New York Times. Why the media refuse to shoot straight when the subject turns to guns. Which CBS News icon is “transparently liberal,” according to commentator Andy Rooney. Why some think the top journalism school in America is an intellectual gulag. How some journalists, like Bob Costas and Tim Russert, do get it-and how they think American journalism can be made better.
