A word about my “assistant professor”:
John Stossel – formerly employed by ABC – is a Fox Business News consultant with a weekly program that airs Thursdays at 8PM (Brighthouse channel 124).
Stossel's specials tackle issues that face Americans today. They consistently rate among the top news programs and have earned him uncommon praise: "The most consistently thought-provoking TV reporter of our time" said the Dallas Morning News, while the Orlando Sentinel said he "has the gift for entertaining while saying something profound."
For ABC and Fox Mr. Stossel has consistently tackled issues that have made him one of the most controversial – and openly free market – journalists of our time. He has, and continues to examine issues like the war on drugs, public education, government spending, health care, the income tax system, government regulations, eminent domain abuse and many more topics that are rarely addressed by other journalists.
His series, Stossel in the Classroom has won many awards and it used by over 4 million high school and college students around the nation.
Stossel has received 19 Emmy Awards. He has been honored five times for excellence in consumer reporting by the National Press Club. Among his other awards are the George Polk Award for Outstanding Local Reporting and the George Foster Peabody Award.
In his early years at ABC, Stossel was consumer editor at Good Morning America. Prior to that he was a consumer reporter at WCBS-TV in New York City. He began his journalism career as a researcher for KGW-TV in Portland, Ore. Stossel is a 1969 graduate of Princeton University, with a B.A. in psychology.
Mr. Stossel has delivered speeches on the virtues of liberty and free markets all over the world (including Valencia College) and will be relied upon to make this class more interesting and thought provoking this semester.
