They say that tonight we ask Bernie go -- to watch other -- Ghazi hearings are covered by the network news on cable we can tell you.
That's alive hearings were carried for one hour 48 minutes on Fox News seventeen minutes on CNN and zero minutes nothing on MSNBC.
Once would -- not surprised by MSNBC.
What does surprise me is that NBC.
Doesn't just spin off that channel may get a liberal concern take it out of the news division.
Because that obviously doesn't cover the news.
On the network news' front NBC ABC and CBS did not -- with the Nazi last night as a factor did.
They led with the Cleveland obnoxious.
As for time Brian Williams gave Ben Ghazi three minutes Diane Sawyer two minutes 24 seconds Scott Kelly four minutes 41 seconds.
In the morning The Today Show gave Ben Ghazi three minutes seventeen seconds and remember that -- -- on for four hours.
Good Morning America spent less than a minute.
On -- -- that's a two hour program and the CBS morning news spent three minutes fifteen seconds on the story.
Joining us now from Miami to prepare Bernard Goldberg dot com mr.
Goldberg and you say.
Before I comment on on the media.
That interview was disturbing with mrs.
If President Obama Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice didn't indeed tell her face to face that it was all about the video.
That is beyond outrageous.
It's one thing to -- to the press and the American people in general.
What to tell a story like that that was obviously not true and by that point they had to know it wasn't true.
That is deeply troubling.
Can I just needed to get that out bill.
On the media I'd like to make three points first.
MSNBC which ran zero seconds or minutes or any -- of live coverage of the hearings.
MSNBC is not a liberal news organization or left wing -- news organization.
It is not a news organization of any kind it's public relations firm.
-- And some of its clients.
Don't want this story to go anywhere Barack Obama doesn't Hillary Clinton.
Doesn't and congressional Democrats don't want it to go anywhere and MSNBC along with other news organization.
And and and that's shameful the second one I wanna make is that there -- three stories yesterday buying for media attention.
-- -- -- The Cleveland kidnappings and -- areas.
Now I understand the people on this network care about -- -- but by and large.
Then god -- comes in third.
Because there are millions and millions and millions of Americans who are like babies who like to follow shiny objects.
These people don't care about Ben Ghazi they know more about -- areas than they do about Ben Ghazi and that's how they like it and that's also troubling.
By the way.
I wrote what I think is an important piece on this subject on my website Bernard Goldberg dot com I hope.
People will go to read -- the third and final point that I'd like to make is about Mike Huckabee.
On his radio show recently he said that Barack Obama would not survive.
Ben Ghazi that he wouldn't be able to serve out his second term because of Ben -- this is wishful thinking masquerading as political analysis.
Barack Obama is going nowhere because by and large the American people don't care about Ben -- It's not interest thing it's not sexy.
Doesn't involve a woman who committed murder doesn't involve any of the things that millions of Americans care about.
I'm totally depressed over this whole thing.
We're gonna have Governor Huckabee I believe tomorrow on the factors so little playing your clip and then -- react to that.
On the as far as -- network news is concerned it looks like CBS did its job.
I mean almost five minutes on the -- broadcast that's a big chunk of time they got about a 22 minute hole so -- -- right.
The morning shows absolutely could have done more all of them.
You know but I think you're right I think did -- Knoll drive by the folks solo five million people five million people watched the fact the last night.
And we managed to covered all Bernie we -- you get all the meetings and you know wasn't that hard -- so we got it all it.
-- let me say two things.
On related sort of the first thing is that you don't.
I don't I don't think you and I -- our web guys you know I mean I get my news from television and newspapers absolutely.
But a lot of American -- younger Americans.
They only know what's going on on the world to the extent that they know -- all by going on the web so -- 10:30 this morning I went to Google news.
There were 31 story's on the home page 31.
Zero on -- -- Yahoo! News which is another major web site.
Had a story from the AP they link to a story at the AP and the Associated Press where I had my first job this is -- -- the gold standard of American journalism are used to being edited anymore this story is not anymore the stories they ran.
-- about how the Republicans were out to get Hillary Clinton.
If I ever wrote a story like that they would have fired me they would've killed me yet and then now obviously he's not a hard news piece.
Right and that the final point I want to make is that if the viewers out there on the stand just one thing they'll understand everything they need to know.
Eight plus years ago.
The so called mainstream media decided that it was going to try to help Barack Obama win election.
Just substitute Barack Obama's name for Hillary Clinton's name.
If you understand that you understand everything right it was it was foreplay issues ago money and -- -- that would -- -- you know I know that.
-- -- -- -- -- -- I'm very lucky got a lot and tonight -- K give me you know I got.
And we appreciate you coming on the program.
