Give Me A Break: How I Exposed Hucksters Cheats, and Scam Artists and Became the Scourge of the Liberal Media

Tuesday February 2005


John Stossel Co-Anchor, “20/20” ABC News

In his new book, John Stossel, co-anchor of ABC’s “20/20,” takes on the regulators, the lawyers, and the politicians with a voice that champions the free market and vilifies the growing litigiousness of American society.

He reveals how rampant lawsuits are making the Kings of Torts rich, rewarding victims with pennies, and crushing America’s innovative spirit. He exposes wrongheaded regulations, showing how FDA rules may cause many more deaths than they prevent. And he draws a bead on media fear-mongers, warning that bogus “threats” are killing America’s trust in the news media—and actually creating real dangers.
