Bernard Goldberg may be a jerk, but 60 Minutes commentator Andy Rooney conceded that Goldberg is on target about liberal media bias. I thought he made some very good points, Rooney told CNNs Larry King on Wednesday night.

Rooney admitted he has a liberal bias since I'm consistently liberal in my opinions, adding that he considers Dan Rather to be transparently liberal.

Near the end of CNNs Larry King Live on June 5, King raised Goldbergs book, Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News.

Andy Rooney conceded Bernard Goldberg's premise about liberal media bias and called Dan Rather "transparently liberal"

King asked, in a transcript checked against the tape by the MRCs Ken Shepherd: What did you make of Bernard Goldberg's book, critical of television liberal bias, and especially harsh on some of your folks at CBS?

Rooney replied: I thought he made some very good points. There is just no question that I, among others, have a liberal bias. I mean, I'm consistently liberal in my opinions. And I think some of the, I think Dan is transparently liberal.

Now, he may not like to hear me say that. I always agree with him, too. But I think he should be more careful. I think Goldberg, Bernie, he was a very good reporter, you know.

He said some very true things. There's only one thing about it: He just has a great knack for being a jerk, Bernie Goldberg.

King, chuckling: Meaning?

Rooney: Well, you can tell it in the book. I mean, he was always that way.

He was that way around the network. He had a very good reputation as a reporter, but he was always sort of a jerk. And I liked him. I felt bad when he-

King talked over Rooney: It's so hard drawing you out, Andy.
Rooney: -when he left.

A lot more people outside, and probably even inside, CBS News see Rather as the real jerk.

About the only person Dan Rather is not transparently liberal to is Dan Rather himself.

[Web Update: For the June 12 Wall Street Journal, Bernard Goldberg penned a column about Rooney's admission: "Ever Notice Liberal Bias?"

Goldberg recalled that Rooney was talking about "the same Dan Rather who was all over me like a hound on a hare, as he might put it, when I wrote in 1996, on this very page, that 'The old argument that the networks and other 'media elites' have a liberal bias is so blatantly true that it's hardly worth discussing anymore.' I was a correspondent at CBS News at the time and the op-ed started the TV version of World War III. I was taken off the air for several months; there was even talk that CBS News might fire me for uttering such blasphemy.

"Several of my colleagues went public with their displeasure. Bob Schieffer told the Washington Post that for me to say there was liberal bias at the networks was 'a wacky charge.' Andrew Heyward, the President of CBS News, also spoke to the Post, calling me a 'misguided missile.'

"But now we have Andy Rooney, a very big name in the world of television news, publicly saying that Bias was filled with 'some very true things' -- and it's like a tree falling in the forest.

The silence, as they say, is deafening. Here's Mr. Rooney saying what right-wingers have been yelling about for years -- that Dan Rather is 'transparently liberal'
(even I never said that!) -- and not a peep outside the Internet."

To read's Goldberg's op-ed piece in full:
