    Does ANYONE have a link to that video from last year? It was called:

    "Ten lies and myths" By John Stossel. It was a 20/20 episode that had all sorts of goodies in it.

    DDT.
    Guns.

    ETC....

    I am having a discussion with a friend and he REALLY needs to see this piece. If anyone could point me to a link of it I would appreciate it.

    I saw an ad last night that this is going to be replayed TONIGHT (30 December) on 20/20.

    Terrific story! I've never seen this before.

    Simply amazing - I NEVER would have predicted this from CBS. I applaud them.

    and you'd never get it from CBS either, that was Disney-owned ABC. What are the odds?

    I don't know about Stossel's personal politics on firearms, but he seems to be one of the few newsmen who can actually analyze gun control data and come to a reasonable conclusion.

    Oops - ABC. I guess that's what a guy who doesn't watch TV gets for naming names.

    I'm even more shocked now though. Disney? When did they start supporting responsible journalism?

    IS it the same piece?

    I got the impression Friday's show was busting the myth of gun control=less crime?
    JS is a Libertarian for the most part from what I have heard/read on him.

    Yup, looks like the same show. I'll have to record it to my computer tonight so I have a high quality version.:)

    John Stossel IS a Liberiterian, he has a book on his views/opinoins Give me a Break which IMO is an excellent read.

    Yeah, he's a board-certified Libertarian. His book is a must-read for anyone that is even, remotely, anti-big government.

    I'd vote for him. I read part of one of his books (Need to read more.) He is a very down to earth guy with real solutions. He would be a much better choice than what we have now.

    Stossel could get 1000% more votes than any other LP candidated ran since '72! (I'd go so far as to say he'd get more actual votes than every LP presidential candidate since '72 combined)


    Thing is if he won he'd have to take a heck of a pay cut to take the job :p

    Too bad nobody (that can change the laws) will listen to him, or even us (the constituents) for that matter!!!

    The only people that actually "heard" the report is us. Unless Rosie O-Donnell heard it, she'll just stuff another doughnut and say, oh well, at least most of the women listen to and believe me.

    Wow, only 60 kids killed a year. It is still very sad that 60 youngsters lost thier life due to firearms, but more die of fire, drowning, motor vehicle accidents, etc, etc, etc and they don't get that kind of press....

    Thanks for the link! I was honestly amazed that this was aired on 20/20 and/or one of the big networks. All in all, 20/20 and 60 Minutes seem to be blatantly anti-gun and liberal-biased shows IMO, and I have refused to watch them in recent years.

    That is a great link for people who only believe what they see on TV. We need to spread it around the Web.

    I just showed this to my wife, and she seemed to have a look of revelation on her face. Somehow hearing those criminals talk about how they could care less about gun control laws means a lot more to her than hearing me tell her the same thing. I would agree that this should be shown to all antis you know.

    I bet more than 60 kids choke to death on candy each year than die by firearms.

    I saved the video to my computer, posted it on LJ, and will be showing it to a LOT of people.

    Yeah, I always like this guy's work. I wonder what he has on his bosses to get away with it. But I have heard that he has the personality of a wall in person, so I'm not sure he'd be too electable.
