Baker & Taylor
A veteran CBS reporter exposes how liberal bias pervades the mainstream media, arguing that fairness, balance, and integrity have disappeared from network television.

Perseus Publishing
In his nearly thirty years at CBS News, Emmy Award winner Bernard Goldberg earned a reputation as one of the preeminent reporters in the television news business. When he looked at his own industry, however, he saw that the media far too often ignored their primary mission: to provide objective, disinterested reporting. Again and again he saw that the news slanted to the left. For years, Goldberg appealed to reporters, producers, and network executives for more balanced reporting, but no one listened. The liberal bias continued.

Now, breaking ranks and naming names, he reveals a corporate news culture in which the closed-mindedness is breathtaking and in which entertainment wins over hard news every time.

Excellent book. Mr. Goldberg worked for CBS for many years. When this book was published he was not yet working as news and media analyst for Fox News.

TV journalism is not real journalism, nor is Goldberg's trash talking of his colleagues (although well deserved), nothing serious here but does provide some insight into the large egos that populate TV news
