Bernard Goldberg has quit his position with HBO’s Real Sports after 22 years because he can no longer stomach the “cowardice” and extreme left-wing bias of the show, he told Bill O’Reilly.

Goldberg walked off the production early this year and is now speaking out to reveal why he quit after more than two decades.

A well-known conservative, Goldberg slammed the show for constantly seeking “diversity” even as it quashes his conservative ideas. “You are looking at diversity on the show, I literally am diversity,” Goldberg told O’Reilly on his The First program.

Goldberg went on to slam the show for allowing left-wing politics to come before its journalistic integrity.

“I have no problem with anybody’s personal politics, but when it intrudes on the integrity of journalism, I have a problem. I had enough. I said that’s it, I’m gone,” Goldberg continued.

Goldberg had faced oppression on his segments based on politics several times. His feature on transgender athletes was recently axed when leftist trans activists threatened to launch a hashtag campaign against the show.

Goldberg insisted that his report, which had been written and filmed, was a “down the middle, both sides of the story, nuanced, fair play journalism.” But the producers of Real Sports canned it, anyway.

“Cowardice led the people who run the show to say we don’t want to run this because this might cause us trouble,” Goldberg said. He added that activists threatened a social media “hashtag campaign” to protest the segment.

Goldberg also slammed the producers of the show as weaklings in the face of a left-wing pressure campaign.

“Seventeen and 18-year-olds stormed the beach at Normandy when Germans were firing machine gun bullets at them,” Goldberg railed, “and these guys are worried about a hashtag campaign because the transgender community decided they didn’t want us to run the story.”

Goldberg was also attacked for defending former Sacramento Kings broadcaster Grant Napear who lost his job after tweeting “all lives matter.”

The long-time broadcaster and reporter added that Americans traditionally turn to sports to escape everyday troubles and politics. He predicted that ratings and earnings for pro-sports would continue to plummet if the leagues continue to inject politics into their product.

U.S. Birth Rate Declined More in 2020 Than in the Last 50 Years

Birth and fertility rates in the United States declined to the lowest level in nearly 50 years.

Birth and fertility rates in the United States declined to the lowest level in nearly 50 years, according to data provided last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One would think that with so many millions of Americans stuck at home on coronavirus lockdowns that the birth rate might have ticked upwards in 2020. But, nope. The numbers are down another four percent over numbers from the previous year’s reports. According to UPI: The total and general fertility rates in 2020 also declined 4% from 2019 to record lows. The report said at the current level — known as “below replacement” — there are more people dying every day than are being born. The decline from 2019 to 2020 is the largest single-year decrease in nearly 50 years. The U.S. birth rate last year was down to about 56 births per 1,000 women of child-bearing age, which is the lowest rate on record. UPI added that this is the lowest birth rate since 1979. “About 3.6 million births were recorded nationally in 2020, down from the 3.75 million births in 2019, the data showed. The 2019 figure was down from 3.79 million in 2018,” UPI reported. The only good trend is that births to teens is also down. Births among 15- to 17-year-olds fell by 6% and to 18- to 19-year-olds by 7%. Consequently, abortion rates have also been falling. Abortions dropped 7% to 862,320 in 2017. that is down from 2014’s 926,200. America is hardly alone in this. Most economically wealthy nations are experiencing similar declining birth rates.

Texas Senate Passes Bill Banning Sex-Change Procedures for Minors

Last week, the Texas State Senate approved SB 1646, which would ban sex change procedures for minors, by an 18 to 12 vote margin.

Last week, the Texas State Senate approved SB 1646, which would ban sex change procedures for minors, by an 18 to 12 vote margin. The bill will now go to the State House before it can go to the governor’s desk. State Senator Charles Perry’s bill would define sex changes for kids as child abuse. If made into law, the state’s Child Protective Services (CPS) department would be tasked with dealing with violations. “Perry argued in floor debate that the bill was necessary to prevent children from making irreversible decisions that they may regret later, but experts say both parts of that claim are questionable,” the Texas Tribune reported. “According to Marjan Linnell, a general pediatrician, puberty suppression treatments are completely reversible and have been used for decades to delay early onset puberty. While other treatments such as hormones and surgery may cause irreversible changes, Linnell said the risks are discussed extensively with children and their parents before the procedures, which is typically only performed after puberty,” the paper added. Of course, the problem is, telling a 6-year-old about complex and possibly dangerous procedures is a waste of time since they aren’t advanced enough mentally and emotionally to make such important decisions. The bill in Texas is just one of the many bills in states across the country proposing limits on transgenderism. Not only are states trying to prevent the medical sector from dangerously affecting the health and wellbeing of children already suffering from confusion and pressures (usually from adults), but legislators are trying to limit men pretending to be women from playing sports against natural-born women.
