Bernard GoldbergAKA Bernard Richard Goldberg

Born: 31-May-1945
Birthplace: New York City

Gender: Male
Religion: Jewish
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Journalist

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Bias

Veteran of CBS News for nearly thirty years, whose career there ended with the publication of his work Bias, a New York Times bestseller. The book purported to demonstrate the "liberal bias" pervading American news media. Of course, the content of the news media itself is entirely driven by capitalistic forces. Goldberg has turned into somewhat of a conservative gadfly. An appearance on The Daily Show to promote his book 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America (see Bernard Goldberg's List) did not go so well -- the utter irrelevance of his book was painfully highlighted. Very few conservatives made the list -- even obvious candidates such as Ann Coulter (who recommended the use of nukes in the days immediately after 9/11) are excluded -- and many of the "liberals" listed have been out of power or influence for many years: Jimmy Carter is ranked sixth.
