Libertarian TV personality and former ABC reporter John Stossel says Youtube placed age restrictions on a video he published about socialism.  The restrictions have since been undone, but the fact they occurred is part of a trend that has many conservatives and free speech advocates concerned.



Why, oh why, can't you Florida yahoos accept that Hurricane Irma was caused by global warming? That was the desperate but condescending attitude of the UK Guardian reporter Ed Pilkington in his September 11 article about Hurricane Irma which expressed surprise that (GASP!) Floridians did not buy into the global warming dogma as the cause of the storm. His condescension begins with the title of the story, Floridians battered by Irma maintain climate change is no 'big deal':



Fox News correspondent John Stossel has just written a stinging column on the "Stupid Hostile Media." He began with New York Times media columnist Jim Rutenberg, who celebrated July 4 by suggesting "anti-press" conservatives shouldn't hate the media so much. They always make the mistake of opposing or exposing the liberal media is always anti-journalism -- as they dismiss conservative journalism as propaganda and quackery.



John Stossel returned to the air on Fox Business on Friday night after treatment for lung cancer. He told People magazine he doesn't feel like he deserves special attention: "People have been very nice, saying they have been praying for me. I feel a little embarrassed, because I don't feel I had a life-threatening diagnosis. I caught something early, they took it out."

Stossel gave an interview to Paul Bond at The Hollywood Reporter, and they chatted about liberal media bias at ABC and elsewhere, like the Emmy award voters:



On the Friday, April 18, The Ed Show, MSNBC host Ed Schultz trashed John Stossel's appearance on FNC's Fox and Friends in which the FBN host defended fossil fuels as making it easier for people to exit poverty than other more expensive options.

After calling Stossel a "fossil fool" as he began the show's regular "Pretenders" segment, the MSNBC host parroted doom and gloom global warming predictions and asserted that "poverty and climate change are linked," as he claimed that the poor will suffer the most.



As the Chicago teachers’ strike continues, let's review what we've learned, no thanks to the broadcast media, which downplayed the story. We know that on average Windy City educators make $71-76,000 a year and they've turned down a 16 percent pay increase, which amounts to $11,360.  We know that they contribute only a tiny sliver of their pay, 3 percent, to their retirement package, and we know, because the media keep insisting on this, that teacher evaluations are supposedly the major sticking point in negotiations.



In order to get the correct answer to anything, one must ask the right question. That is what former ABC News and current Fox News TV host John Stossel does on his weekly program. If ever there was "must see-TV," this is it.

Stossel's show on Saturday, June 30 was a classic. It was called "Government, Incorporated" and focused on what private industry can do less expensively and more efficiently than government. After watching it, I wondered why this isn't happening. Why does inefficient, costly and unresponsive government continue to grow while the people and companies that could do the work much better are regulated and taxed to death?
