Great listen. Need more reporters to report the real truth.
CD is narrated well...excellent writing of the real world
I am a big fan of John Stossel and enjoyed this book very much. It's an eye opener to what's really going on and I would recommend people to listen to what Mr. Stossel has to say.
I enjoyed this selection and the author's candid views on government vs. private enterprise. While I don't necessarily agree with all of his arguments, the book was entertaining and well worth the time.
Excellent book with a good author and a great story.
Very insightful. Stossel has different way of looking at things and making you think. Clearly not a book for liberals!
The point of this book is that government cannot do anything as well as the private sector. Competition fuels quality and with government monopolies there's no competition and hence; no quality. John Stoussel provides example after example of how government continues to rip us off, wasting our money, time and lives. The book is very persuasive and will definitly hold your attention. If you love big government or if you hate big government, one way or the other, you'll be angry after you read this one!
Bucking the business as usual Network news dept. He discusses his tangles with the PC and ultra liberal people who run network news. He discusses why they are losing views every day, and why once mighty newspapters like NY Times alianates thousands of once obsessive readers to cancel their subscriptions.
Stossel is refreashing in his observations and is well written and well spoken. Watch out Bernie Goldberg you have competition!
...just like his 20/20 segments. Excellent 'book' for listening to....only helped by Stossel doing the narration. If you like 20/20, primetime, dateline, etc....you'll enjoy this CD
Excellent, a very good book to listen to. Will make you think about all sorts of things and question everything that you see on the television and hear on the radio. Good insight into the television world and the government!
This was so eye opening! His points are interesting and well thought out. Definately gives you a different and more expanded version on the world we live in!
If you have a great deal of faith in government bureaucrats running your life, you might not care for this book. If, however, you believe in personal responsibility and individual freedom, you’ll find this book a breath of fresh air. In this age of depending on the government for just about anything, Stossell points to numerous occasions when nice sounding government programs prove to either waste our money or do the opposite of what they intended to do. Stossel’s reading of his own book adds to the quality of it.
Liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican, John Stossel (in this book, an avowed Libertarian) tells it like it is. Porkbarrel politics and corporate greed are lashed side-by-side with junk science and the abject failures of soft hearted (and headed) handouts and burned at the same stake by a guy who has been to the mountaintop and has seen clearly the other side. In a world of New York Times copycat network news departments, Mr. Stossel is more than a breath of fresh air; he is a symbol of hope in an otherwise mind numbing sea of liberalism in the press. This book will have you shaking your head and vowing to demand change. It also gives you some further insight into the personality of a network newsman whose star apears to be in the ascendant in spite of the fact that he's not a liberal.
Very funny look at America and it's self destructive political correctness. He counters liberal mob mentality with fact and even includes sound bytes from his tv shows in the recording.
