Are the Media Arrogant?

I just finished reading Bernard Goldberg’s Arrogance: Rescuing America From the Media Elite, the first of several books I intend to read over Christmas break. The book is basically a sequel of Goldberg’s earlier tome, Bias, and continues on the same thesis: that the press has a liberal bias which needs to be corrected. However, while Bias identifies the problem, Arrogance presents a solution.

I enjoyed the book. Not as much as I liked Bias, but I found it informative nonetheless. His ideas for reforming the media (which includes the national headquarters of networks moving out of New York City and to places like Mississippi and South Dakota) are great ideas, but don’t seem likely to happen anytime soon. Still, we would all be better served if they did. In the meantime, we still have Fox News.
