KVLY-TV confirmed this week what many have long believed, that “Chris Berg is not a journalist.”
It was a surprising admission from the station, given that Berg is listed as a member of the news staff.
We’re anxiously awaiting any future announcements about other non-journalists at Valley News Live. If they let one sneak in, there may be more.
Berg is perhaps best known for spreading fake news about “paid protesters” last year, using an anonymous Craigslist ad as his source. He has also been known to keep a Donald Trump bobblehead on his office desk, presumably for inspiration.
This week, during an interview with local racist man Pete Tefft, Berg apologized for calling the man a white supremacist, opting instead to call him pro-white at his request. When a viewer wrote in to complain, Valley News Live responded:
Chris Berg is not a journalist and POV is not a news program. It’s literally titled Point of View. It is an opinion show and Chris Berg is the moderator. Thirdly, Mr. Tefft refers to himself as a pro-white activist.
We’re glad that’s cleared up.
