Bernard Golberg appeared on Hannity to discuss his new book, "A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (and Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media". Bernie Goldberg and Sean Hannity played and discussed some recent newsclips showing how the media is covering Obama.

They showed and discussed how Chris Mathews called MSNBC the network of "change" while anchoring their coverage of the inauguration. When they showed a shot of the crowd, Mathews said those are the people that watch MSNBC. They also discussed the recent Washington Post article discussing Obama's glistening pecs and his workout routine.

The network of "change" slogan is unbelievable to me. Liberals whine about Fox News all the time. Imagine if Fox had changed its slogan from Fair and Balanced to "Country First". Then imagine if John McCain had been elected and Brit Hume spoke up during the coverage to say "We're the network that puts Country First. Do you see those people out there? They watch Fox News" You can't even imagine it because it would never happen. But it did happen at MSNBC.

They also discussed some of the items in Goldberg's book, like Chris Mathews saying that if you don't cry while listening to a Barack Obama speech you are not an American. They played a clip of David Rodham Gergen of CNN gushing over Obama's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention (DNC). They also played a clip of Keith Olbermann complaining about a quesion George Stephanapolous asked at a Democratic Presidential debate in April 2008.
