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.

Bernard Goldberg, 1945 Bernard Goldberg was born in 1945 and has been involved in producing the news in some form since he began his career. he started out as a writer and editor for The Associated Press in New York in 1967. In 1969, Goldberg became a producer and writer for WTVJ-TV in Miami until 1970 when he switched to WPLG-TV as an investigative reporter for two years. He joined CBS in 1972 as a producer based in Atlanta, becoming a reporter for CBS in 1974 and a correspondent in 1976. He has remained with CBS since then, joining the San Francisco Bureau from 1977 til 1981. There he covered the 1980 Presidential Campaign of former California Governor Jerry Brown and the 1976 Republican National Convention. In 1981, Goldberg joined the New York Bureau, becoming a correspondent for the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather until 1988. He was also a frequent contributor to CBS news speeches during that time. In March of 1989 he was named special correspondent for 48 Hours, contributing more than 100 reports in four years. In the summer of 1991, Goldberg became a contributing correspondent to the CBS Primetime Series Verdict and the next year he helped to launch the CBS Newsmagazine, Street Stories. Goldberg eventually ended up as a correspondent for Eye to Eye with Connie Chung, winning an Ohio State Award for an Eye to Eye report on the decline of civilization in the last 30 years. He hosted the "Don't Blame Me"special one hour primetime Eye to Eye that explored the trend in American culture to not take responsibilities for their actions. In the course of his career, Goldberg spent three decades with CBS, received six Emmy nominations, an Ohio State Award and a Sigma Delta Chi Award. He wrote the book "Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News" which discussed the liberal bias inherent in the news, a situation that Goldberg abhorred.
