STOSSEL VS. GORE
Why was so much of what Roosevelt said and did left on history’s cutting room floor?” he asks.
Should he ask that question of every president, Mr. Bradley would have another book to write. Look for investigative ace John Stossel to resurface on the public radar in a big way. “Stossel,” his one-hour weekly foray into economic issues, debuted Dec. 10 on the Fox Business channel at 8 p.m.
“I plan to explain what true economic liberty means to my viewers,” Mr. Stossel tells Inside the Beltway. “I want to talk about things like Ayn Rand and ‘Atlas Shrugged,’ and the true costs of global warming.”
The former ABC veteran has signed on for 44 episodes.
“And about that global warming, in heading up the news this week. It really has become a kind of secular religion,” Mr. Stossel says. “And a lot of the faith is fueled by people with a distinct hatred of capitalism. It’s religious zealotry, and anyone who disagrees with these people about climate issues is chastised and dismissed.”
He has his keen eye fixed upon one person in particular, though.
“Al Gore says the debate about global warming is over. But he won’t debate anyone about it,” Mr. Stossel observes. “And for the record, I’d debate Al Gore anytime.” Rosin, Katrina vanden Heuvel and others of the liberal and progressive persuasions. Curiously, the book is distributed by Health Communication Inc., publishers of the best-selling “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series.
“There’s a book line I’m now going to boycott,” observes one annoyed Palin fan.
