An hour that challenges your view of the world and your mother's wisdom -- "Myth, Lies and Straight Talk" with John Stossel.


I just saw a commercial about this episode -- it'll be talking about gun and control and suggested that gun control has no effect on crime (duh) but I thought it strange that ABC would be reporting such. Anybody see anything on this?

Might be a rerun from last year. If so, it is a good watch. - Only 10min. +/- long, IIRC.

John Stossel isn't the typical scare-you-with-hysteria type of investigative reporter. He's very much a free market, libertarian type. It's very glaring to see someone like that working in the news media, because I think Stossel's just about the only one. At least I can't think of any others.

and his chair is against the wall.


damn, i gotta wake up earlier or stay up later!

stossel isn't necessarily pro or anti 2a, he's an investigative journalist who actually practices journalism as they teach it in school - dispassionate, objective, and taking all the facts into consideration.

if i was a journalist, he'd be my god...

It has been on before. He basically thoroughly rips the gun control arguments and shows the supporters up for their own ignorance of the subject. Ten minutes to complete destruction.

believe it or not, but John Stossel is one of the good guys. He is a rabid libertarian. He had a similar special last year before New Years.
