Arrogance – Bernard Goldberg – Audio Book

Arrogance – Bernard Goldberg : 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. -Which CBS News icon is “transparently liberal, ” according to commentator Andy Rooney. -Why the only kind of diversity you cannot 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.

Arrogance by Bernard Goldberg is a truly enjoyable read. Goldberg doesn’t try to create a
vast left wing conspiracy tied to Islam or Communism, he just presents the facts as he sees them. Although himself a former insider, he really does know what he is talking about. But instead of wanting to put this book down, Goldberg gives the reader and/or listener the feeling that he not only loves the country he lives in, but also the profession that he’s chosen, and he has hope for the future.
