Who is Bernard Goldberg?
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 08:06 PM by Blue_Roses
I was flipping the channels last night and he was on Scarborough Country and he was talking about his book, "The 100 People who are ruining America," or something like that. Normally I would keep flipping since I can't stand Scarborough, but I just had to see who's names were on this list. He had Micheal Moore as #1 and Dean as #19. He had a few conservatives as well, but most are liberals.

Hey, Bernie, who made you the expert...? What an arrogant jerk.

2. Sorry to say
the title is "100 People who are RUINING America". The usual suspects; pinko, commie libruls. Nothing to see here, keep on moving... :sarcasm:

4. Michael Moore, Howard Dean, Al Franken, & Barbra Streisand
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 08:14 PM by abernste
They are who's ruining America?????

But Tom DeLay, George Bush, Brit Hume, Donald Rumsfeld, Ken Lay, Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh et al. are nowhere to be seen on this guy's list.

What an asshat.

He had to show he was, umm, "fair and balanced" yes that's it.

5. A disgruntled former CBS News correspondent
who got P.O.'d when he was passed over for the anchor job on the "CBS Evening News" when Dan Rather retired. After he left the network, he made the talk-show rounds, portraying himself as a "victim" of "liberal bias", on (predominatly) right-wing talk shows where he has a forum to boo-hoo and whine about what a hotbed of raving left-leaners the media are.

He's now writing crap geared to fatten his bank account by bleeding money from every clueless, foaming-at-the-mouth sucker who is motivated by the same blinding hate and twisted desire for revenge that permeates Goldberg's, um, "tomes".

Bottom line: Sour grapes.

7. he wrote a crappy book about liberal bias and got his head handed
to him by a number of people and looked like the ass he is. If you had watched CBS news for 40 years like me, you would have been surprised by his attitude. I was sorry to see he was an asshole.

8. Thank you! :-)
Goldberg had a reputation as a self-serving jerk when he was a mainstream journalist.

How the mighty do fall. ;)

20. No apology necessary :)
I have a unisex name (Dana) - you wouldn't believe the amount of mail I received addressed to "Mr.". My husband gets the biggest kick out of it!

21. I saw that last night as well and he said that ppl. were dropping the
F-bomb and cursing everywhere so he had included the Hiltons as #100 because of their daughters and their attitude toward what they do. Well, I happen to agree that the Hilton girls are certainly not anything to be proud of BUT he seemed to leave off vp Dick who said fuck off to a Senator on the floor and * who during the 2000 election got caught on an open mic calling a reporter an asshole!

He threw a couple of real right wingers in there to try to claim he wasn't biased. Come on, how hard is it to put Lay and Roy Moore on your list. The really scary part is they are way down on the list.

He is full of crap and completely biased. He's a hack!
