Last week, Keller was speaking at the New York Press Club. "I think if you're a regular viewer of Fox News, you're among the most cynical people on planet Earth," he said. "I cannot think of a more cynical slogan than 'Fair and Balanced.'"
This did not sit well with O'Reilly, who told Goldberg that the New York Times was incredibly biased.
"The New York Times is about as uber-left as you can get," he said. "We have proven time after time after time that it bleeds its editorial page into its hard news...these guys live in a dream world."
Goldberg was even angrier.
"He doesn't mean cynical," he said. "He finds Fox viewers to be among the stupidest people on the face of the Earth." It was indicative, he said, of the Times' "contempt" for conservatives.
"If they treated black people with the same contempt that they treat conservative Middle Americans, they would be called racist," he said.
