Bernie Goldberg: Media Will Ignore Obama’s Five Major Broken Promises

The liberal media will make sure to go through the motions and occasionally hit President Obama with some critical points, but they will hold their fire when it comes to addressing five major unfulfilled campaign promises, former CBS reporter and media critic Bernie Goldberg told Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly last night.

Given that the latest jobs report shows the second quarter of 2012 was the worst for job creation in two years, the media must and will criticize the president to some degree on the economy, but they will mostly resort to childishly mocking Mitt Romney’s campaign gaffes and doing all they can to avoid making this November a referendum on the president’s performance. Here’s the relevant transcript:

 

BERNARD GOLDBERG: But they [liberal media] do it. They do it.

Look, can I give you another — you like facts. Let me give you another example. There’s a piece in the current edition of The Weekly Standard by a very smart fellow named Pete Wehner, who’s on FOX from time to time. I’m going to just give you five facts. Just five.

Fact No. 1, as a candidate, Barack Obama promised to create five million new energy jobs alone. Just 5 million energy jobs.

Fact No. 2, he claimed that, by the end of the first term, his healthcare plan, would quote, “bring down premiums by $2,500 for the typical family.”

Fact No. 3, he guaranteed that his financial rescue plan would help stop foreclosures.

Fact No. 4, in the first year of his presidency, he pledged, quote, “to cut the deficit we inherited in the half by the end of my first term in office.”

Fact No. 5, he said he would, quote, “lift two million Americans from poverty” and, quote, “jolt our economy back to life.”

Have you seen that any place in the mainstream media? That Barack Obama has failed to deliver on his promises?

BILL O’REILLY: No. Nobody has put that in. Except for The Weekly Standard, nobody has brought that up. But all politicians make promises, and few deliver, to be fair.

GOLDBERG: Yes. But it’s one thing to promise vaguely, “I promise you hope and change.” These are very specific promises.

Listen, the same mainstream media that put Mitt Romney’s stupid stunt while he was teenager in high school all over page one and on several jump pages, and the same mainstream media that put on page one Ann Romney’s horse thing, you know, where she rides horses, which is a very expensive hobby, they found enough time and space to devote to that. Why can’t they find time to devote to this?

O’REILLY: Because they want President Obama to be reelected. As simple as that.

GOLDBERG: It is. It really is.

O’REILLY: All right. Bernie, thank you.
