"Illegal Everything" with John Stossel

I've heard some good things about John Stossel here and there over the last few years, but haven't seen anything firsthand until now.  Via Radley Balko, I invested the 40+ minutes to watch "Illegal Everything", and boy, could we use a whole lot more of that kind of work.  To the extent it is representative of Stossel in general, I may have to start paying a little more attention.

Some may note that it appears to be Faux News that carries Stossel, at least here, and for some that's enough reason to ignore it.  Thing is, as the old media (yes, Faux News is very much "old media" in its approach) continue to slide further and further into irrelevancy, anomalies like this seem to be on the rise--and I should also note that Balko, himself, recently left Reason to write for the Huffington Post.

Make of all that what you will, but also don't let it get in your way.  "Illegal Everything" is worth it just to witness the lockstep continuity of sleaze put forth by each and every one of the featured Establishment flacks paid--with your money--to lecture you back on what Momma don' 'low round here.    :-)
