Well reasoned

He seems genuinely committed to rational, well reasoned discussions on the issues he presents. He has a unique ability to present serious issues in a light hearted, entertaining way. I always enjoy watching his shows and appearances.

Stossel

The only reason he's lower on the objectivity score is because he hosts an opinion show - not meant to be objective!

Pretty darn good journalist

I like John Stossel a lot. I really appreciate his perspective on the drug war and government regulations. I just wish that he were harder on aggressive foreign policy and illegal wars.

Tries to tell the truth in an untruthful news network (FOX)

Great informative programs are put out by this man. I like his stances on weed, prostitution, libertarianism,...

A true libertarian

I thoroughly enjoy watching John Stossel. He may be a bit biased on his libertarian views,that being said he backs it up with facts. I enjoy the way he can encourage his audience to look at something from a different perspective. His interview style is spot on. Watching his reports and specials was the 1st true awakening of my libertarian heart.

Stossel: last remaining bastion of liberty on national TV

I still try to catch the Judge when I can but since those clowns at FBN killed Freedom Watch, Stossel is the last remaining regular program on national TV that is worth watching.

Tries his best to get the truth out

But, like most of the media his bosses hold the reins. John could be a truly great journalist. As it stands, he is still 95% better than all the rest.

Amazing Reporter

Stossel is a policy myth buster that helps us see everything that's wrong with the idea that government is the solution to our problems. His specials make it easy to understand how government is actually part of those problems.

Also, he's fair when he invites people with different views into his show to discuss all kinds of topics.

Stossel is a role model every reporter should follow.
