Cost of courage
“My teenage son, Nick, is smacked in the face with liberal, socialist dogma every day of his life. The notion that Big Daddy Government can take care of everyone [. . .] is commonly accepted in his generation, because that’s the message that’s shoved down their throats by the modern culture.
“It’s no wonder John Stossel’s book, ‘Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity,’ is Nick’s new ‘textbook’ for fighting ignorance.
“ ‘Myths’ is the very best graduation gift you could buy for any kid headed off to that bastion of liberal dogma — the American college campus. [. . .]
“Stossel’s willingness to be courageous has not been without personal cost. As a young reporter on a mission to expose the ills of business and competition, John was showered with 19 Emmy awards before his own reporting convinced him that people and nations thrive in free markets. He hasn’t taken home one award since.”
