O’Reilly, Goldberg agree: alleged media bias doesn’t matter

Last night on Fox News, Bill O’Reilly and regular contributor-cum-media critic Bernard Goldberg, once again, agreed on things. Most pivotally on this point by O’Reilly himself:

Folks know that the media is dishonest — that the media now is not in the business to report the news anymore. They’re there to advance an ideological agenda. So, if the folks know it, all the polls say they know it, that means that the press is not going to have any real influence on the election this time around.

So if the impact of media bias is so trivial, why do these guys harp on it each week?
