Bernard Goldberg Trashes Ted Koppel’s Report On Partisan Cable News

By Alex Weprin Comment

On last night’s “O’Reilly Factor,” Bernard Goldberg appeared in one of his typically meta segments to talk about last week’s rumble between Bill O’Reilly and Ted Koppel. O’Reilly claimed that he pressed Koppel on anchors like Bret Baier and Shepard Smith, but Koppel was more interested in the primetime opinion shows.

“This is embarrassing for someone who is about to do a story on television cable news, and it shows a tremendous gap in his journalistic knowledge, and a tremendous gap in his journalistic curiosity, incuriousity in this case,” Goldberg said.
