Publisher's Summary

In his #1 New York Times best seller, Bias, Emmy Award-winning journalist Bernard Goldberg created a national firestorm when he exposed the liberal biases of the so-called mainstream media. Now, in his new blockbuster, Goldberg goes even further. He not only takes on Big Journalism, but offers a twelve-step program to help the media elites overcome their addiction to bias. In Arrogance, Goldberg punctures the bubble in which the media elites live and work, a culture of denial where contrary views are not welcome. He shows how they base their stories on assumptions many Americans don't share-which inevitably leads to biased reporting and slanted news. With blistering wit and passion, he names names and builds his case, revealing:
How the media's coverage of the Jayson Blair scandal missed far more serious problems at the New York Times
How some of the toughest watchdogs in journalism became Hillary Clinton's lapdogs
Why the media refuse to shoot straight when the subject turns to guns
What the real truth is behind the Ms.-information put out by feminists and passed on to you by their friends in the media
Which CBS News icon is "transparently liberal," according to commentator Andy Rooney
Which Hollywood celebrities say the dopiest things about America
Why some think the top journalism school in America is an intellectual gulag
Why the only kind of diversity you cannot find in a lot of newsrooms is a diversity of ideas
How some journalists, like Bob Costas and Tim Russert, do get it ¿ and how they think American journalism can be made better.
Arrogance is one of those rare programs that can change not only a powerful American institution, but the American landscape as well.

Big Media?

Having heard all the flack Bernard Goldberg received from his critics about his book "Bias" I was interested in hearing his thoughts in his own words . The book kept me interested and explained why his opinion about the media is an important subject to explore. Many of the examples of media bias in the book I remember hearing or seeing myself at the time they were in the news, others were interesting in there absence from public view.
I now wish "Bias" was also available on audible.

Please,..Let,s hear it AII!

Very good read, from a 'middle of the road' reader...
But..Ahem, Most Kind Audible folks, ..
two things are missing here, perhaps.

1.The unabridged version (always critical) for this type of non-fiction.

2.Book 1,"Bias" The NY # 1 best seller and precurser to this audio document.
(I have read both 'complete versions' and can guarentee the readers of this book that the impact and cohesiveness is greatly augmented by reading the former publication as well!

They are really a two part opus in content,.. and should definitely be assimilated in tandum.

Thanks in advance, Audible!
