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!
