I said listen Bill O'Reilly in a week is a Bernie segment tiny study out of Ernst and young that I reference before.
Which is a respected accounting firm by the way.
Says that a president Obama's successful raising taxes on the affluent and on business -- country will lose hundreds of thousands of jobs hundreds of thousands.
But did I hear about that study on the network news and that is teed off our pal Bernie Goldberg joins us now.
From North Carolina now this isn't significant study right.
Yeah I I would I would say so it's not a total news blackout because.
The New York Times Washington Post to their credit and Fox News did cover it but what Ernst and young the respected.
Is that if Barack Obama gets his way and it taxes go up on the so called rich 7101000.
Will be killed off.
Now I don't know how he get it down a 7101000.
Jobs so that is that how it's third counts that's solely those they do like numbers now.
But he could be seven.
NB twelve that you know OK okay how about about 700000 jobs.
Will be killed off but it strikes me and nothing is -- -- the most fascinating to me in this is why.
I don't understand why CBS NBC and ABC wouldn't covered because the backup is very fascinating which is why Saddam is -- Merrill.
Who doesn't really care with all due respect -- -- about current income or any -- you know it's not -- 900000.
Business owners would have on new the new tax the rich plan.
Have their taxes what 900000.
-- a lot of business don't right there so they're they're going up netting and he wanted two things -- those -- Pass the cost on to the consumer higher -- -- or fired.
-- -- -- -- They're not gonna say well we'll take less profit because -- -- even make -- a lot of profit in the recession.
So that's why so go ahead going.
I was gonna say so you're racing a question here bill and that is so why does the media ignore something like this look.
And I know my conservative friends are gonna call me naive for saying it's only a possibility.
The so called mainstream media at the networks don't -- report stuff if they can avoid it that hurts their guy and Barack Obama is their guy did not actually true no true.
I think -- I think it's a distinct possibility but I thought I think it's true.
Hey let's say let's just -- let's give a more benign interpretation let's say.
They didn't do it because it's not a government report so therefore it's not on their radar screen lets you say.
I have a solution.
A solution by the way that you'll say yeah when pigs fly but a solution that would fix this no matter what the causes.
And that is.
An affirmative action program for the smallest minority and in America's newsrooms conservatives.
Because if they had just a few conservatives in the newsroom somebody would have said.
-- -- -- This this is newsworthy let's put this on the air tonight.
Well you would think that I don't even think it has to be conservative I think -- -- -- looking out for the folks in and this is another stat.
That if -- Obama gets what he wants that tax hike on the affluent -- Bernie and then business owners 900000 of them.
We'll go from 35 to 45% this isn't a small tax -- this is a 10% -- That's -- -- right between the eyes.
No no bill bill bill I hear this over and over and over again it is -- 10% the difference between 35 and 45.
It's ten percentage points the difference between 35 point 45 you are now -- thirty.
33 person you are correct 13 percentage points.
All right and I are real quick.
The rounding trip Media Research Center a conservative group that you've been critical of them in the past I think they do pretty good research problem although they never had trouble with their with their stats today they do excellent browser today said I don't even when he's -- on both sides 86% of all the media coverage on Mitt Romney's overseas trip was negative.
If you're wondering if I'm shocked like -- captain Louis -- who went into the back room that Rick's cafe in -- -- When he any notice gambling going on no I'm not shocked.
I'm not shocked at all.
About a big number though.
That that -- that's a huge it's huge lesson for years ago I wrote a book called a slobbering love affair about how the media fell in love with Barack Obama and -- included.
Material about his foreign trip so they drool all over him for years ago.
And all they could find now are gaps in -- -- Well obviously.
Journalist of Barack Obama's most loyal base they will not abandon him.
And they've got too much invested in him minister who do what find that a problem obviously am -- surprised not at all.
That's an interesting thing -- Bernie Goldberg just said journalists.
Are president Obama's most loyal base very thought they -- -- very interesting statement I think we'll pick up on that more next week.
