Skip to comments.Berkeley Professor Assigns Students To Dig Up Dirt On FOX News For Taxpayer-Funded PBS Hit Piece

Sitting at the bar in Paolos Restaurant at 92nd Street and Madison Avenue in Manhattan Saturday afternoon, December 10th, I was shocked by the tone the conversation with my old ABC News colleague Lowell Bergman had taken. He was heading to London and had urgently requested that we get together before his afternoon flight from JFK.
I remembered Lowell as a brave, competent, but hugely self-righteous old school investigative reporter, who famously produced the Mike Wallace expose of the major tobacco companies for 60 Minutes. Al Pacino played him in the movie version of the saga, The Insider.
Although I hadnt seen the now 60-year old veteran reporter since he parted ways with ABC back in 1982, I recognized him immediately.
Like most out-of-town, old-timers, who persistently request an unscheduled meeting to talk about some projects Im working on, I assumed Lowell had fallen on hard times and wanted a job.
I was stunned, therefore, when after some small talk about our children (five each) and now dead fellow colleagues, his eyes narrowed, his smile turned into a grimace, and he began interrogating me about News Corporations hacking scandal.

They have become enemies of the state.
I would think that this might include watching fox news. Something I doubt the illustrious professor has not done him self. Maybe these kids might learn something in the class that be harmful to their grade.
Do you suppose they keep a paid de-programmer on staff at places like media matters? LOL
In seriousness (though), I'll bet trying to find dirt on conservatives converts a good number of liberal. It happened to me when I began to question environmental policy.
That’ right. When the SHTF we must remember who they are.
Fox should dig up dirt on the Professor and Berkely. These commie freaks need to be outed. They are angry they do not have total democrat party control over the news.
Secret Senate subcommittee hears of News Corp crimes. It's not just the hacking scandal they used all kinds of weapons!
News Corp reporters have "cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed homeless encampments in fashion reminiscent of Ghengis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the poor areas of cities in all 57 states. . . ."
Don't thank me, PBS. It's all yours now.
