Looks fair and balanced to me! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif LMAO


The first expert is a lobbyist, Sally Pipes.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> PRI head Sally Pipes, a Canadian residing in the United States, frequently speaks and writes against universal health care. Her bio lists as healthcare topics she had addressed "the false promise of a single-payer system as exists in Canada, pharmaceutical pricing, solving the problem of the uninsured, and strategies for consumer-driven health care." She also authored a 2004 book titled, "Miracle Cure: How to Solve Americaís Health Care Crisis and Why Canada Isnít the Answer." [1]

On the FOX News show "The O'Reilly Factor" on January 10, 2007, Pipes spoke against California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's proposal to provide all state residents with healthcare. She warned that, "[I]f we provide health insurance, just like we provide welfare and education for illegal aliens, think about people that are illegal in other states. We're going to get a huge influx of illegal immigrants into California. And that's going to make it even more expensive [than the current system]." [2] </div></div>

How about that other expert?

That's called getting OWNED.....big time. LOL. He is just another corporate whore, selling his soul for money.

BTW, that wasn't a tv programme, THAT was an infomercial for the HC industry.

Load of crap. Fox is dragging the other channels down into the gutter with them. He belongs on Fox.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">First on TVNewser: John Stossel, the longtime ABC News correspondent and co-anchor of "20/20," is leaving ABC to join Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network. TVNewser has learned Stossel will host a weekly, one-hour program for the 2-year-old business channel. He's expected to signed a multi-year deal with Fox which will include regular appearances on Fox News Channel during daytime and primetime. He'll also host four, hour-long specials on Fox News, much like the business/consumer specials he'd hosted for years on ABC.

Stossel, a libertarian, has been appearing on Fox News for years as a guest on shows including "The O'Reilly Factor," "Hannity & Colmes" and "The Big Story."

Stossel joined "20/20" in 1981 and was upped to co-anchor in 2003. TVNewser has learned there was a window in Stossel's ABC contract which allowed him to jump to Fox.

Stossel's departure from ABC means there will soon be another anchor vacancy at the network. Last week, Charlie Gibson announced his retirement paving the way for Diane Sawyer to take over on "World News" beginning in January. "20/20's" other co-anchor Elizabeth Vargas, is one of the top names being mentioned for the GMA slot.

At Fox, Stossel will join another ABC alum, Chris Wallace who made the jump from broadcast TV to Fox in 2003. Last year, ABC News veteran producer Michael Clemente joined Fox News as SVP of News. Clemente had worked as a senior broadcast producer with Stossel on "20/20" during his 11 years at ABC.

Perhaps FNC's most notable ABC hire is Brit Hume, who spent 23 years at ABC News before joining Fox News when it launched. Hume stepped down from his daily "Special Report" anchoring last year and now appears as an analyst on the network.

OFFICIAL: Fox and ABC News statements after the jump. Roger Ailes: "John has done meaningful and important work throughout his career. His thoughtful and charismatic style has carved a unique niche in the world of television."



FOX NEWS & FOX BUSINESS NETWORK SIGN ABC NEWS'S JOHN STOSSEL

Stossel to Host Program on FOX Business Network Along With Appearances on FOX News Channel

FOX News Channel (FNC) & FOX Business Network (FBN) have signed a multi-year deal with award-winning journalist John Stossel to anchor a weekly program on FBN and make regular appearances on FNC, announced Kevin Magee, Executive Vice President.

The one-hour FOX Business program, entitled Stossel, will debut during the fourth quarter of 2009 on FBN's primetime line-up, featuring in-depth reports and discussions surrounding libertarian issues in the United States and abroad. Each week Stossel will be joined by experts to explore consumer-focused topics such as free-market economies, civil liberties, the business of health care, social security, and free trade.

Stossel will also make regular daytime and primetime appearances on FNC as well as host and produce a series of one-hour specials for the news network. In addition, his blog Stossel's Take, will be published on both foxbusiness.com and foxnews.com.

In making the announcement Magee said, "John Stossel is one of the most talented and thought-provoking journalists in the field and we are extremely excited to welcome him to the FOX Business team. His insights on consumer-related issues are unparalleled and will be a natural complement to our business programming."

Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO of FOX News, added, "John has done meaningful and important work throughout his career. His thoughtful and charismatic style has carved a unique niche in the world of television."

Stossel, best known for his work as co-anchor of ABC News's 20/20, has been praised for his reporting on issues affecting the heart of America. His investigations and consumer themed programming have focused on small business owners and American taxpayers, including specials such as Greed, Trouble with Laywers, Freeloaders and Is America Number 1, which have rated among the top news programs.

Stossel commented, "I'm thrilled to join FOX News and look forward to inventing a new show for FOX Business."

Prior to 20/20, Stossel held consumer reporter positions for Good Morning America and WCBS-TV in New York City after starting his career as a researcher for KGW-TV in Portland, Ore. He has received 19 Emmy awards and has been honored five times for excellence in consumer reporting by the National Press Club. He is also the recipient of the George Foster Peabody Award and the George Polk Award for Outstanding Local Reporting.

I think it's called character ... or getting fed up with being pimped.

OTOH, your hero Mr Olberman still suffers from a raw arse over being fired by Fox ... by Murdoch himself ... for being <span style='font-family: Arial Black'><u>"INSANE!"</u></span>
