-- jealous of Bill O'Reilly in -- week is -- Bernie segment tonight let's go right to Miami Florida with a purveyor of Bernard Goldberg dot com is standing by.
So Bernie correct me if I'm wrong and I know you love to do that.
I don't think most Americans of any idea.
What this fiscal businesses all.
Yeah let me answer that by reading just two sentences from your talking points received two sentences.
It's now clear that mr.
Obama does not care about the spending problems the USA -- You simply do not run up deficits of more than a trillion dollars a year if you care about fiscal responsibility.
You think most Americans understand that.
I don't think they -- but in fairness.
To the American people and their clueless this on this particular subject.
President Obama portrayed this as taxing issue and not a spending crisis.
And this demographers.
In the so called mainstream media went along with that story line.
I don't think as a result of that I don't think that most Americans understand that these new taxes on the rich and on other people as you rightly mentioned earlier.
I don't think the American people understand that this won't again.
To put a dent in mr.
Obama's trillion dollar a year deficit so the longer term sixteen trailed the sixteen trillion dollar and and climbing national debt.
I don't think the American people have a clue as to how bad things are gonna get if we don't get spending under control and and pretty bad.
You know why that's all speculation no -- it's not like a natural disaster or the murder at new town or anything where people emotionally can react to.
What's in front of them even when they see people in Greece in the streets rioting in the cop shooting tear gas sent them.
It's far away it's not gonna happen here -- that kind of thing.
But the worst part about it and I might be at fault here because -- covered this fiscal boat stuff very much in the -- -- and a reason I didn't is I said.
I knew it was a phony deal that that Obama wanted the crisis so he -- demonize wealthy people even more -- want to solve it.
That Boehner in -- Republicans thought they would defeat Obama in November.
They didn't really wanna solve -- they wanted out there they nobody really wanted to do what was good for the folks and get a concrete deal of right below a bit more revenue Feingold Bergen O'Reilly -- kick it to you.
All right but you're gonna have to cut one -- one as the Obama commission.
And and you know that would have been a way to do we decoded -- last August if they were all honest they still could do with but they're not honest.
That's what really and but if I'm out there like -- a straw -- -- my arms waving.
To people who just don't want -- lock in on -- it's a hopeless cause.
That's right I mean it's the media -- responsibility but so -- the American people have a responsibility.
This story what's portrayed.
The way the president want to be portrayed this it.
You know this dependency in the media to portray stories the way the president wants them portrayed is that every I did enjoy just this press know it's it's this it's this -- wasn't that -- with President Bush.
In the beginning MR 9/11 it wise but Danny it veered off into a hostile bullish atmosphere when attracted -- Right and this look by the way I didn't make that observation about how the press.
Tends to cover stories the way the president wants them to Mark Halperin of time magazine as mainstream a journalist as you can get.
He's the one who first made that observation.
Look this story was portrayed.
As the president.
Looking out for 98%.
Of the American people.
He wins the PR battle when that's the case and even though polls show that most Americans think we're spending too much.
And polls do show that on a regular basis.
I don't think the American people really understand how bad things are going to get and that's to answer your question that's where the press comes and they did did needs to be not just an occasional story here or there but there needs to -- stories.
What happens when interest rates go up from near 0%.
To a more typical 56 or 7%.
We're getting away with paying the sixteen trillion dollars at a near zero rate.
We can't pay and -- a 7% rate.
We will go broke when that happens.
There won't be anybody you know the court any fragmented and -- you have time entitlement is they don't believe it's gonna happen and and they're never gonna copped to it.
Now essentially you have a story that's boring.
All right the fiscal stories doll.
Is dole a motion as I said float around.
I mean if you had a chance to watch.
Entertainment and I and then there is they're down on Koppel and that's an -- or O'Reilly and Goldberg talking about a sixteen -- you can stop -- We're -- go up on me and -- -- is that okay so that's why did television media.
And mass and it kind of stays away from the story in the sense that -- how we can bring in these pinhead economists and they could tell you all day long.
That our currency may evaporate in five years but people just not gonna believe -- -- the lap.
Happens the vote the wrote well that's true but the role of the press is not to entertain the masses.
You know this is not -- not -- ratings on television you have to.
-- well okay fine.
But then it then if if if newspapers say all we care about a circulation of television's that's all we care about is ratings then fine put on the car chases and all that other crap.
And then when we we slide into what depression that makes the first one look like a picnic.
Then the people have every right to say to the media why didn't you warn us about this.
But as I say.
The people say where we're spending too much.
But they've just like they don't care your taxes go up they don't want their taxes to go up billionaire.
If the government cuts your programs they don't want it to cut.
My program well also everybody's values are getting by the people everybody everybody -- -- more the -- starting.
Yesterday -- all right everybody a couple of.
