    ABC 20/20 and FoxNews | 09/14/2007 | John Stossel
    There are several information programs out there produced by John Stoical, that address our health care situation.  They are very good because they cover a number of important issues, help the viewer to understand basic principles, and provide sound ideas how to improve the presnt system, which the present health care plan on Capital Hill does not do. The first presentation I'm going to bring to your attention is a six part ABC 20/20 program that appears on YouTube.  The second will be a sixteen clip presentation on Stossel's FoxNews Business site. The ABC 20/20 presentation is entitled, "John Stossel...

    President Obama goes to Copenhagen next week, and he is expected to promise to cut carbon emissions 83 percent by 2050. And John Stossel will have plenty to say about it Thursday night, when his new show, "Stossel," premieres on Fox Business at 8 p.m. EST. Expect Stossel to weigh in on the utter arrogance of the effort. A promise of 83 percent? Not 80 percent? Not 85 percent? And why do the world's leaders wnat to spend trillions on a theortical problem with millions dying from malnutrition, poor hygiene, and malaria.

    People keep forwarding me emails and blog posts saying ABC fired me. Internet forums claim I was fired because I aired a story about the downside of government-controlled health care. This is silly. It's not even logical. No one can broadcast anything on "20/20" without ABC's approval. The truth is that my departure from ABC was by mutual consent. I left to go to the Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network because I want more time to report on free markets and economic liberty, the kind of reporting I do in this column. With two 24-hour news channels, Fox...

When they hired Greta instead I wrote this piece recommending that CNN, if they wanted to challenge Fox should hire John Stossel to take the 8:00PM time-slot and predicted that Stossel – who I feel is MUCH MORE acute than O’reilly – would beat him in the ratings. Well tonight, almost seven years later, Stossel who has been given a show on Fox Business Network during the 8:00PM time-slot was...

    As he debuts his prime-time show on Fox Business Network this week, John Stossel talks about his falling out with ABC, his Gordon Gekko fetish—and why Peter Jennings wouldn’t look at him. When John Stossel announced in September that he was leaving ABC after 28 years and heading for Fox News, the obvious question was: What took him so long? The youthful-looking 62-year-old Princeton alum—who keeps fit by playing beach volleyball in Central Park with the likes of John McEnroe—had been co-anchoring the magazine show 20/20 with Barbara Walters. But if he was making more, he was enjoying it less....

    Today, the White House holds its “Jobs Summit” stunt. It’s typical Washington-think: Assemble interest groups and concoct special tax credits and handouts to the politically connected. What conceit. The political class think that economies revolve around them, that Washington makes things happen, that politicians are the most important players. Today’s Washington Post suggests that the way to create jobs is public spending by the federal government: Obama's options are limited, as the administration already has signaled that it is unwilling to make any investments that would add significantly to the nation's ballooning deficit. At least the Administration talks about the...

    I’ll be on O’Reilly tonight to talk about the recent Climategate e-mails. How bad are they? They show that scientists at Britain’s Climate Research Unit – which the UN IPCC relies on for temperature data – tried silence dissent. From the Washington Post: In one e-mail, the center’s director, Phil Jones, writes Pennsylvania State University’s Michael E. Mann and questions whether the work of academics that question the link between human activities and global warming deserve to make it into the prestigious IPCC report, which represents the global consensus view on climate science. … “Kevin and I will keep them...

    Bill O'Reilly is mad at me because I'm not mad enough about taxes. Last week on "The O'Reilly Factor", we talked about California's and New York's enormous budget deficits and planned tax increases. Those states would have big surpluses had they just grown their governments in pace with inflation. But of course they didn't. Now the politicians act like their current deficits are something imposed on them by the recession. But that's nonsense. They created the problem with their reckless spending. Let's look at the particulars. Had the government of New York state grown at the rate of population and...

    The Berlin Wall fell 20 years ago today. When it happened, I thought it would be the clear turning point: the left would admit it was wrong, if not clueless, about central planning. But it was I who was wrong. Congress legislates like the Wall never fell. There was one bad thing about the fall of the USSR: We lost a very visible bad example of big centralized government. With Washington now turning to central planning to “fix” healthcare, clean the environment, and “create” jobs, it’s helpful to have role models of failure.

    When an initial report by a government oversight board claimed President Obama's $787 billion stimulus plan had already resulted in 30,000 jobs, the White House said that was evidence the stimulus was working. Now the Associated Press has reviewed the stimulus contracts and found, oops, the government exaggerated the job numbers. You always suspected your money was being flushed away. Now you have proof.

    I wish President Obama would say to Congress: Members of Congress, I ask you to address our fiscal emergency. In 1964, President Johnson won a landslide victory -- quite similar to mine. His election also brought liberals into Congress. The next year, they created the first government-run health care plan: Medicare. They meant well, but unfortunately, this was the height of fiscal irresponsibility. I know Medicare is popular with the elderly. Of course it is. Everyone likes getting free things. But it is unsustainable. Retirees believe that their Medicare bills are paid from a "trust fund" that was created with...

    "Choice, competition, reducing costs -- those are the things that I want to see accomplished in this health reform bill," President Obama told talk-show host Michael Smerconish last week. Choice and competition would be good. They would indeed reduce costs. If only the president meant it. Or understood it. In a free market, a business that is complacent about costs learns that its prices are too high when it sees lower-cost competitors winning over its customers. The market -- actually, the consumer -- holds businesses accountable and keeps them honest. No "public option" is needed. So the hope for reducing...

She said: "The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care".

    It's crazy for a group of mere mortals to try to design 15 percent of the U.S. economy. It's even crazier to do it by August. Yet that is what some members of Congress presume to do. They intend, as the New York Times puts it, "to reinvent the nation's health care system".Let that sink in. A handful of people who probably never even ran a small business actually think they can reinvent the health care system. Politicians and bureaucrats clearly have no idea how complicated markets are.

    Did you go to preschool? When I was growing up, few kids did. But now there is a new movement that says every child in America should have a chance to start school before kindergarten -- at taxpayer expense. It's part of President Obama's massive spending plans. His "stimulus" bill includes an Early Learning Challenge Grant to encourage states to "Develop a cutting-edge plan to raise the quality of your early learning programs" (http://tinyurl.com/cv6s23). It's a popular idea. Sixty-seven percent of Americans favor universal pre-K funded by the government. But I doubt that most Americans have thought it through. Mia...

    I'm sick of hearing that America is no longer a land of opportunity. Even before the current recession, politicians and pundits were constantly wringing their hands about the "demise of the middle class." "Middle class families are struggling," President Barack Obama kept saying on the campaign trail. Lou Dobbs hammers away at this night after night: "What's left of our middle class may be on the verge of collapse." And author Barbara Ehrenreich won fame by claiming that it's almost impossible for an entry-level worker to make it in America. She wrote "Nickel and Dimed," a book that describes her...

    John Stossel looks at the logic behind the bailout/stimulus culture our government is pushing. It's frustrating that the few sane voices in the mainstream media are drowned out by the propogandists.

    For John Stossel fans -- looks like it'll cover bailout stuff but maybe also libertarian whining about illegal immigration and marijuana legalization enough to get freepers raging. Nevertheless, looking forward to it.

    How will we know if President Obama's must-have "stimulus" program succeeds? Politicians grab credit for everything, so we should come up with a way to measure success. Obama said, "I expect to be judged by results." Let's oblige him. It won't be easy. Obama promises to "save or create" 3.5 million jobs, but if the unemployment rate is unchanged in four years, do we credit Obama for saving 3.5 million jobs that would have been lost? If new jobs are created, should stimulus get the credit? If the gain is in the government sector or in areas fed by taxpayer...

    Washington never changes, no matter who's in power. Give a gang of politicians a chance to spend our money, and they will spend it -- the more the better. An economic downturn is hog heaven; for now they have a justification to spend big time: "economic stimulus." Anything and everything can be proposed as long as it can be said to "inject money into the economy" and "create jobs." Does $819 billion sound like too much? Au contraire. It may not be enough. Ask Paul Krugman and the other Keynesians. The danger, they say, lies in spending too little. Not...

    A college diploma is supposed to be the ticket to the good life. Colleges and politicians tell students, "Your life will be much better if you go to college. On average during your lifetime you will earn a million dollars more if you get a bachelor's degree." Barack Obama, stumping on the campaign trail, said, "We expect all our children not only to graduate high school, but to graduate college." Rachele Percel heard the promises. She borrowed big to pay about $24,000 a year to attend Rivier College in New Hampshire. She got a degree in human development. "I...
