media are the only institution that won’t accept criticism, even
while they criticize everyone else. Bernard Goldberg’s credibility
is outstanding and the networks should all do stories investigating
his claims,” he continued.

that agency, it would lead every network newscast tonight and be
featured on CBS’s own 60 Minutes this Sunday. We’ll see if the
media treat their own whistleblower with the same respect,” Bozell
