John Stossel launches his new show on Fox Business Network this Thursday, and in a wide-ranging interview, the staunch liberarian tells The Daily Beast’s Lloyd Grove what he really thinks about the Obama Administration: “Arrogant expanders of government.”
Meanwhile, why Fox Biz?
Look, it’s a startup. It’s time in life, after 28 years at ABC, to do something new. People used to ask me: Why don’t you go on Fox, because you’d be happier there? And my answer was I’ve got 15 million people, and Fox has under a million. But when I left, 20/20 had maybe five or six million. Bill O’Reilly, including his reruns, is pretty close to that. So the difference is not so big anymore.
