Bernie Goldberg Blasts Ted Koppel for Labeling Cable News as Being 'Bad for America'
Last week on The O’Reilly Factor, Ted Koppel called out cable news as being bad for America. The former anchor of ‘Nightline’ told Bill O’Reilly, “I don’t think anyone is going to be confused as to the ideological belief of most of the people who appear on Fox.” O’Reilly shot back, calling his opinion “grossly unfair to the hard news reporters.”
Bernie Goldberg criticized, “Ted Koppel basically knows one thing about Fox … he knows he doesn’t like it.”
Koppel didn’t know who Fox News anchor Bret Baier was when O'Reilly mentioned him, which Goldberg says shows “a tremendous gap in his journalistic knowledge
and a tremendous gap in his journalistic curiosity.”
O’Reilly said that Koppel’s thinking is that the primetime players shape how the nation views a cable network. Goldberg assessed, “He’s doesn’t understand why Fox is really the most important. And that’s because it gives a voice to people, it lets people in on the national conversation who Ted Koppel and mainstream media won’t let in.”
