Bernie was on Donnie Deutsch's show yesterday and displayed the type of moral character that good young conservatives should emulate. His premise is that Barbra Walters or Streisand are somehow destroying our culture is in itself an imbecilic argument to make, but that hasn't stopped Bernie before.

Bernie completely flipped his wig as the first guest Linda Stasi ( NY Post ) asked him a rather long question to which he responded by giving her an "O'Reilly." (no not a falafel) He told her to "shut up." I have to say when he tells her to shut up a second time I did start laughing. Linda tells him that he's the culture elite.

There was no reason for Goldberg to lose it with her, but fools are hard to figure out sometimes. He's usually on FNC and treated like royalty so it must have really burned him up that Donny would line up some guests to make him explain his dumb-ass self. Bernie of course went running around crying like a washed up vaudevillian act to the moonie times(reg.req)

Jeff Jarvis slapped him around as well and has this full report on the show: Bizarro Bernie: Yesterday, I taped Donny Deutsch's show with Bernie Goldberg about his book, 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America (earlier post here). It's going to be on CNBC tonight at 10:30p and you have to watch, for you will see a bizarre performance that continued after the cameras went off...read on

Here's my take. If I write a book attacking 97% liberals, I should expect serious grilling about the content by liberals. Message to Bernie: " Your book is an attack!" Like a publicity hound or just the "king-baby" complex, Goldberg runs back to O'Reilly to whine about the viciousness that is directed towards him. Poor Bernie, why would anyone do that to you? He's been so insulated that as far as I can tell only Jon Stewart had the chance to debate him. To be fair, Donny could have had someone on to help defend Bernie, but Sean Hannity was already working.
