Interview with John Stossel by Marta Yolanda Díaz-Durán and Jorge Jacobs

New Media  | 15 de enero de 2008  | Vistas: 1916

John Stossel recently visited UFM to receive an honorary doctorate degree. He graduated from college with a major in psychology and began his journalism career with clear social democrat and consumer advocate ideals. After acquiring some experience about the real world he became a libertarian, denounced the disadvantages and threats of government intervention, and began to have problems with the mainstream media. He is well known for spreading libertarian ideas about economic freedom and prosperity and has become increasingly influential on young journalists. His latest book is Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity.
