The nonfiction book of Bernard Richard Goldberg entitled Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News is phenomenal and controversial. Goldberg boldly and bravely mentioned celebrity news man and reporters who actively participate in the idea of media bias. His book generally states the slanted or one-sided nature of the news coverage. The book will give the readers ideas and evidences on how integrity, fairness, and balance disappeared from news reporting. Hence, this paper attempts to give the readers a glimpse about Goldberg’s perceptions of the how the news is being formulated nowadays.

His book shows how the media unintentionally impose a liberal bias when reporting the news. He is quick to point out that for non-social issues like plane crashes or September 11 the media does a superb job. The bias comes out in their coverage of social issues. At times, the book read kind of like Freakonomics, in that I'd read something and go "oh, I never thought of it like that, but it makes sense.

Another "must read" book. It is incredibly important for every American to read for 2 separate reasons:
1. To understand where and how their news comes from and how that news is filtered by people that do think the way most Americans do. As such some very important news never makes it to us and the news that does is disseminated in a way that skews it one way or another.

2. On an even higher and perhaps more important level, how every persons personal views influence the way they do things; even if it is sometimes on a unconscious level. It will help all people to better interpret what they hear and see from others and to understand the bias in all of us.

Actually, I've always believed that the conservative cry of liberal bias was maybe just a bit overdone. For all of you who still think that, be sure to read the book - it belongs in the library of every American who understands that a free press is integral and necessary to our way of life. Note the "free" part of free press. While the government isn't filtering your news, the news media is.
The media isn't just failing us, they're sabotaging democracy. If Goldberg has told even just part of the truth, many in the media deserve to be branded as traitors and hounded out of the business - not because they're liberals or have a liberal bias, but because they're liars, and deliberately misleading the American public.
The media has a right to report in any way they like. But they have an obligation to distinguish between fact and editorial comment. They have an obligation to report fact without regard to the political consequences of that fact. If they elect to add editorial comment to their reporting and acknowledge it as editorial comment, well, that's their right as American citizens. But to deliberately, maliciously lie to us about what is happening and what it means is immoral and unethical. To fail to distinguish between news and editorial comment is unethical. To suppress news or deliberately lie about the facts to advance a political agenda is unethical.
If Mr. Goldberg is only partially accurate, the major media in this country is incredibly corrupt. If he's completely accurate, they're irredeemably corrupt. I shudder to think what the consequences are for our society. Our representative democracy only really works with an educated electorate. One wonders whether the media have noticed that they're no different in 2001 than the old Soviet Pravda and Tass were in the bad old days.

I wonder why the author is frequently characterized as "bitter." My impression was that his tone was one of incredulity - he couldn't believe how warped some of his colleagues were, and he conveyed this by repetition and exclamation.
And if you read this book, you won't be able to believe the blatant bias and contempt for conservative America harbored by the media elite, who live in their own dream world where no contrarian viewpoint is to be heard.
More troubling are the accounts of how the news is regularly skewed to fit the media's view of how things *ought* to be - rather than how they really are. For example, how they "handled" pictures of a politically incorrect chain gang (too many Arfican Americans) ... how vital information is left out ... how labels are slapped on conservatives to portray them as fringe radicals.
Bitter? Well, why not? If you were constantly being targeted simply for exposing a bigotry run rampant, and trying to change it for the better, why not? Has it escaped anyone's notice that "The Dan" is quite a bitter person as well, allegedly nursing grudges for ever?
Finally the fatally flawed and damaging reporting on such vital issues as AIDS and discrimination are given a wider exposure. So many sheep get their news from the liberal media, it's no wonder so much hysteria is generated, so much time and money wasted (see virusmyth.org), so much hatred and anger towards conservatives.
For all its flaws - I wish the book were longer - this book is a wake-up call.

Bernie Goldberg's book is essential reading for anybody who is interested in American journalism. Goldberg, a longtime CBS News correspondent, has presented a thesis that is hard to refute; that American broadcast journalism has been enfeebled by a persistant left-wing bias for years, and is not going to change anytime soon. Goldberg emphasizes his experiences at CBS, with the imperious Dan Rather getting a lot of exposure, but the book covers all of the usual suspects; Jennings, Brokaw, and many lessor lights. The author provides many personal anecdotes from his days at the network to help prove his point, but, in addition, the book is very well researched. Any work that bashes the network giants is sure to find an audience with conservatives, but this book is much more. Goldberg writes with wit, common sense, and a large dose of satire that works just right. This is a book for anyone who wishes to know what happens "on the inside." Bernie Goldberg should be commended for producing this wonderfull book...do not miss it, and enjoy!
