Back a little segment tonight we -- -- Bernie just moments after Casey Anthony was acquitted of murder today of one of her attorneys delivered a blistering attack.
On the media.
Well I hope that this is a lesson.
Through those of you has -- indulged in media assassination for three years.
Bias and prejudice.
And incompetent Talking Heads saying what would be and how to -- I'm disgusted -- -- civil orders we have done this.
And I can tell you that my colleagues from coast to coast and border to border.
Have been -- this whole process.
Of lawyers getting on television talking about -- is that they don't know a damn thing about.
And don't have you experience to back up their words or the wall to do it now you've learned a lesson.
Joining us up North Carolina react to that the purveyor of Bernard Goldberg dot com mr.
-- -- -- -- that attorney has a point.
In the sense that the media ran while with this HL and 24/7.
And they got every expert -- fine in that a lot of people just talking through their hat.
So I I you know I'd.
Obviously think that the woman is is guilty but I don't think the lawyers pointed unfounded.
Yeah well the mistake that that the Talking Heads that he condemns the mistake that they may it is that day.
They they thought incorrectly.
That the jury in Orlando had a modicum of common sense.
This jury watch too much CSI Miami this jury wasn't going to convict unless there was rock solid.
Amp -- way beyond anything that was presented this look.
I mean I'm so disgusted with this whole thing I can I could hardly speak straight tonight but.
-- the lawyer condemning.
The condemning the the Talking Heads listen the the problem is with the jury.
Not not so much with the Talking Heads the problem is that the jury as I say didn't have a modicum -- and I agree with you -- sense here -- right go ahead.
Bill here -- there was a woman as you rightly setting you're talking point.
There was a woman who -- whose daughter goes missing.
Who for thirty days doesn't report it to the police who then tells the police.
That the housekeeper took the baby but that's a cock and bull story because there is no housekeeper said she talks about a rich boyfriend but there is no rich boyfriend.
Then she goes out dancing and she gets involved in in in in that she gets a tattoo that says.
The beautiful life.
And they can't and they find this woman not guilty.
Circumstantial evidence is evidence.
It is and it looked like what -- what the lawyer was angry about -- pun -- Loading up and saying in -- and any other side of the story there was another side of the story and overall though and I.
And I and I think that's why I love for all I have to say.
Roland I go -- it as good as any two individuals it ever been on television.
And you heard that you heard that debate -- although it's taken the defense side tonight.
And I'm saying exactly what you are saying and Bernie.
That it doesn't add up in any way shape or form at all and there was enough forensic evidence to make me an American citizen convict this woman.
What did you think of the back and forth between -- -- -- me.
Well I wonder if Geraldo and others who think like Geraldo.
Would be so.
If let's say a militia.
Man in Arizona.
-- was accused of killing.
And the evidence was similar to this case.
A mountain of circumstantial evidence do you think Geraldo Rivera would go on the air and talk to you the way he did I can't I can't today -- it will well I'll tell you what let me try.
If I don't think he would he would speculate.
That may be this person did it maybe.
She's crazy may be this may be that this is ridiculous.
If the man from Mars came down and he heard the evidence in this case he'd say.
Well of course she's guilty I mean maybe she should get the death penalty but of course she's guilty I -- does can you name any other will any other mother.
On the planet earth or at least in this country who when -- old daughter is missing for a month.
Goes out to -- No and that's surely -- damning and that combined with a forensic evidence that I sided dual that he had.
And Ronald bases and while -- was quite every piece of evidence -- question.
But believe me there is no doubt in my mind or any fair minded individuals mind that there was -- resident residue in the trunk.
Of Casey Anthony's car now let's go -- to the huge ratings.
Television ratings that this trial has garnered for the past month and a half what is the fascination.
I think -- that's a very good question and I think the answer is this I've said before.
That we live in the united states of entertainment.
And I think the fascination with this story proves the point.
You -- here you have a case.
The American people are watching.
A reality TV show.
That's the fascination of watching a reality TV show with real characters and the possibility.
That at the end of the show the star.
May get sentenced to death.
This wasn't from a journalistic point of you build this was not an important story wasn't about race it was -- about.
That the clash of class in this country wasn't even about fame and yet we were drawn to it because in the United States we -- And I mean crave.
Entertainment we have American soldiers dying for their country in Iraq and Afghanistan.
And they don't get 110 of the time that this story got and one more point.
Nobody's gonna like this what it's absolutely true.
If Casey Anthony were a young black woman with a black two year old.
No network would give this story ten minutes and that that wasn't videotape of that cute little girl who wound up dead.
That probably wouldn't get on the air either in this country we have the ability to be incredibly shallow at times and this bill.
This bill was one of those times all right Bernie thanks very much as --
