Award-winning journalist Bernard Goldberg says the media is "slobbering" over Donald Trump and has turned its coverage of the Republican presidential front-runner into "one great big infomercial."

"In some places the slobbering is downright embarrassing," Goldberg writes on his news and opinion blog BernardGoldberg.com.

He says cable news networks cover Trump "virtually non-stop" with opinions from "those who (literally) think he's the worst thing to happen to the world since Hitler" to people "who seem to confuse him with the savior who has come back in the form of a loud-mouthed, braggart businessman in a blue suit, white shirt and red tie."

Goldberg writes that a diversity of opinion is good, but the problem lies with the length of time devoted to one particular candidate.

"The bad news comes when a news organization runs any candidate for long stretches — unfiltered. When the journalist might as well be a potted plant standing off camera while the candidate goes on and on telling us how wonderful he or she is," he says.

Goldberg, who has worked for CBS News and now reports for HBO's "Real Sports," is author of the bestseller, "Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News," published by Regnery.
