“I don’t think you have to succeed by being partisan. Obviously Fox and MSNBC have been successful by taking that road,” Moonves said. “God forbid that is the only news on television where everyone has decided that we are taking a side and that is the only way to go, and people will watch with whatever they agree with, and get the polls they only want to agree with. I think partisan news, hopefully, is not our future. It won’t be at CBS.”Any thought that CBS News is non-partisan can be quickly dispelled by remembering RatherGate, reading Bernard Goldberg's book, Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News, or reviewing the CBS-related archives at NewsBusters.
