Bernie segment tonight as you may -- Goldberg and I often discuss how the liberal media affects what's going on in this country and we just that would -- -- But Democrat Robert Kennedy junior sees it much differently saying conservatives dominate the media landscape.
All right we're in control the American Media are strictly.
Starting with our clues.
And you are on the radio our country.
-- playing and -- -- pool our country and -- here.
I think it -- and had.
Under our country -- -- we -- -- the credit probably civil war.
Joining us now from Miami is a purveyor Bernard Goldberg dot com mr.
So does -- have a point.
The idea that right wingers control the American Media it's downright funny because if right wingers really do control the American Media -- don't want a terrible job.
Has has Robert F Kennedy junior ever read time or Newsweek has he ever read the New York Times in the LA times.
Has he ever watched NPR or NBC or the other networks.
Except for fox and talk radio we live in an overwhelmingly.
Liberal media culture and bring huge point just a few minutes ago about how the media is covering this economic crisis.
Is a good example I mean that covering it is it taxes.
Is the big issue where spending is overwhelmingly the big issue and I wonder does does Robert Kennedy junior.
No I mean does that CN and other liberals do they really want.
All of the media not just ninety -- 95% of the media do they really want all of the media to reflect their.
Hey here's what I think it live here's what I think's -- I think -- -- rfk junior and people.
In his sect.
They believe that NPR PBS CNN and MSNBC.
Their -- -- There and they're not exactly -- not -- actually they're just they just liked the New York Times poll how can you say that that's a mainstream paper that's not laugh.
All right that's so there's clearly -- court made -- -- -- baseline.
-- to say hey bill closes the -- -- mean it is that I think it's left.
-- I wrote about this and bias and this was like eleven years ago.
That these people see everything to the left of center as middle of the road and moderate in his recent regular regular folk and everything to the right of center as conservative.
You -- but everything to the left of center is just middle of the road -- right you're absolutely right.
Our our conversation that would Dan rather one time.
-- was it was off the air and and and I said to him.
-- I used to work with you and I and when I came over from WCBS a local station here in New York.
Partisan -- mean -- -- is running gun covering the news in New York City away.
I walked into your culture I -- -- surrounded by left wing guys including new do you really think it.
He did I -- we have a lot of left wing guys here and I'm going.
Is rod sterling here where where I mean.
The bill bill you're you're telling this to me I'm telling the audience -- -- you're like -- medium.
And if I think.
I think everybody watching us knows that I've had my disagreements with -- my close personal friend Dan rather on this but but you're an idea yeah he doesn't acknowledge that it.
No he doesn't we have account well -- -- get into but the point is he doesn't see.
The -- the newspapers or the media.
It would be you know let you know when you're going to be like a lot of -- in going to the real leper colony.
And Moeller high and -- federal leprosy here are people just -- the measles.
That's right that's right I mean ever he doesn't -- things that are clearly.
Liberal as liberal -- but this is this is -- fundamental reason.
That journalists deny that there's bias because they think everything to the left of center is middle of the road once you accept that once you understand that.
You understand and I.
We have guys that now Bernie before -- went on air wish me Merry Christmas two weeks early but I appreciated it.
But we're the pretty much the only ones covering the so called war on Christmas -- other Rhode Island stuff and all -- Charlie Brown gets on the bus and Arkansas.
You don't see these stories on any of the morning programs Good Morning America the today I showed up in Iraq what you see them because.
It -- they're pretty interesting stories one way or the other.
Yes I think that's a good way to put it one way or the other they're -- -- -- now now from let me before I'll get to -- -- -- -- but first let me say.
I don't observe Christmas but I have no problem with people saying Merry Christmas I do think of the business summit capitalists so I think of a business.
Once intelligent -- to say happy holidays.
That's not -- my business I don't have a problem with that.
And I do think that while I I don't believe that the baby Jesus.
In a public square is gonna bring down the republic.
I think there are legitimate constitutional issues okay.
But from a strictly.
Journalistic point of view.
Its interest thing when the governor of a state in this country calls it a holiday tree which come on that's just silly.
I won't call -- -- Christmas tree now eleven months ago the New York Times did a story on this but you're right you don't seen this.
You you don't see this in the mainstream media on anything resembling a regular basis at this time of year and no matter what side you fall on this issue.
It's true state yeah -- living with a lot of -- home.
And -- -- bad for Christmas stuff in -- newspapers.
I know they know it's Christmas time that at every poll shows that journalists as a group.
Are not a religious people they don't go to church on a regular basis or synagogue and I think they just don't see it.
As nearly as important as somebody like UC's.
I think you're afraid of the issue.
Bernie Goldberg everybody.
