John Stossel, Anti-Government Ideologue

Disney/ABC would probably prefer that viewers perceive John Stossel as a fair and investigative journalist, but pro-industry libertarians love him as an ally and leader in their attack on virtually all government. His videos are hot sellers and money-makers with such titles as "Are We Scaring Ourselves to Death?" and "Junk Science." An ad for his latest video proclaims, "Finally, you see how private companies and associations do a great job providing water, roads, air traffic control, poor relief and other services we supposedly need government for." Stossel simply plagiarized industry lobbyist Steve Milloy of for one of Stossel's ABC pieces ridiculing serious dioxin contamination of our food.
