Well, I called this right off the bat when it was announced that Fox was recruiting John Stossel for its business channel (to join the likes of Don Imus). When Bill O’Reilly teased the Stossel segment by saying he was bringing him on to talk about why the White House hates Fox News I knew where it was going. First of all, O’Reilly is dishonest to try and portray Stossel as some kind of independent, a centrist or a moderate when he is a slightly more sane, stable and varnished version of Glenn Beck (as you will read in the excerpt below from The O’Reilly Sucks Blog).
Then John Stossel was on, he has a new show on the FOX business channel. Which proves that Stossel is a Republican, but over the years O’Reilly put him on as an independent. Billy said now that Stossel moved to FOX the White House really hates him. Then they talked about Jake Tapper hammering Robert Gibbs for attacking FOX. Stossel is a right-wing nut, and O’Reilly loves him, but they did disagree on making pot legal. Stossel supports it, Billy is opposed to it. Stossel is like a less crazy version of Glenn Beck, they are like brothers, haha. Billy spent almost the entire segment telling Stossel why drugs should not be legal. Billy said if drugs are legal, all the kids will get it, ummm, earth to O’Dummy, ALL THE KIDS ARE GETTING IT ALREADY. And btw, Stossel was terrible as a guest, he looked nervous and intimidated.
As the blog points out, Stossel is a right winger who will fit in quite nicely with a roster that is highlighted by notable far-right extremists as Beck, O’Reilly (not quite as far right as the other two, but close), Sean Hannity and Imus.
