Bernard Goldberg, an accomplished and award-winning journalist and writer, eviscerated Fox News host Shannon Bream, who attempted to defend the discriminatory Arizona anti-gay bill last week.
Goldberg appeared on Fox News to discuss Jan Brewer’s veto of the controversial Arizona bill that would have allowed businesses and individuals to discriminate against gays and lesbians if it burdened their religious beliefs.
