We wondered when it would happen

A few years ago, after years of investigative journalism on 20/20, ABC's John Stossel finally saw the light and became a libertarian. More significant is that he began reporting on libertarian issues on a more Democratic leaning network. My household TV viewers wondered just how long ABC would tolerate his "Give Me a Break" series.


John Stossel has now left ABC and gone to Fox Business and Fox News. He is probably the most well-known libertarian journalist in the media and perhaps the move will provide more new viewers who will hop aboard the libertarian train to freedom.

Of course, his views will not feel at home there either, because right-wing conservatives are just as guilty about wanting government in their lives as the more left-wing liberals of the other networks. Still, it is good to see that there is at least one Voice of Reason in the media.

First of all, YAY for John Stossel!

Second of all, I don't know why your blog doesn't have ten times more comments than mine because I swear, I like yours better.
