Bernard Goldberg, an award-winning broadcast journalist who has accused the media of liberal bias, will speak on Monday, March 14, at 8 p.m., in Lincoln Theater.

Goldberg's talk is presented by the Ruth B. and Charles W. Deeds Symposium. The program is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. For tickets, call the university box office at 860.768.4228 or 1.800.274.8587.

Goldberg has won seven Emmy Awards, as well as a Peabody Award for excellence in broadcast journalism. He was once rated by TV Guide as "one of the ten most interesting people on television."

A CBS News correspondent for 28 years, Goldberg covered stories all over the United States and much of the world for the "CBS Evening News" and "48 Hours." In addition, he shared his views in a special CBS News segment, "Bernard Goldberg's America."

Goldberg has authored two best-selling books accusing the mainstream media of slanting the news to the left — Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes how the Media Distort the News (2001, Regency Publishing), and Arrogance: Rescuing America from the Media Elite (2003, Warner Books).

"I am not one of those people saying, ‘You are giving us too much bad news.' I'm saying continue to give us the bad news, but give us the rest of the story so we can get a complete picture of what's going on there," Goldberg said when asked about media coverage of the war in Iraq.

The Deeds Symposium was created in 1982 to provide a forum for the discussion of free-market principles. Program speakers are internationally known participants in the continuing discussion of free enterprise and government.
