GIVE ME A BREAK (P)

by John Stossel
Harper Collins, 2004, hardcover
Don't miss this special new extra-low price on the hardcover edition of John Stossel's autobiography!
A terrific read by the Emmy-Award-winning TV reporter who became a libertarian hero and a pariah among his peers when he began reporting government outrages. Stossel's legion of fans will enjoy learning how he ended up in TV journalism, after having graduated from Princeton and gained acceptance at a leading graduate school of hospital management. He overcame stuttering, a problem that would have doomed his broadcasting career.
Stossel tells how, after being recruited to WCBS-TV in New York, he defied his assignment editor who just wanted stories about government press releases, murders, and fires. He opted to report on major trends that affect our lives. He became an ace consumer reporter and was recruited to the ABC-TV network. "The more reporting I did," Stossel writes, "the more it dawned on me that government is often the problem. Free markets, not coercive governments, are the consumer's best friend."
Stossel knew he had arrived when Ralph Nader's flacks began calling him a "menace." There's much, much more in this exciting and inspiring book!
