Fox News host Bill O’Reilly found himself playing defense on Thursday night when his guest, Fox media analyst Bernie Goldberg, accused the news network of having a conservative bias.

“Liberal news organizations are going to play down liberal screw-ups, but Fox News is gonna play down conservative screw-ups,” Goldberg said while discussing the “hyper-partisanship” of the news media on “The O’Reilly Factor.”

When O’Reilly protested that he personally selected his contributors for their independence, Goldberg responded: “This program is not all of Fox News.”

“This show is both smart and fair,” he said. “I repeat: That’s not all of Fox.”

When O’Reilly argued that several Fox hosts, including Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace, were not ideologically driven, Goldberg agreed but said the network as a whole has a conservative slant.

“I never bought that, that Fox is the conservative network,” O’Reilly said.

“Maybe you don’t watch,” Goldberg said.
