The RationalWiki article on John Stossel. "In a 1996 address to the Federalist Society, Stossel was asked why he gave up being a consumer advocate in favor of being a corporatist/libertarian shill. His response: I got sick of it. I also now make so much money I just lost interest in saving a buck on a can of peas."
The Salon Hack List 17: John Stossel [More...]
"Stossel’s a ridiculous local-news “consumer watchdog” reporter who discovered Milton Friedman. He’s the worst of simple-minded sensationalist television news masquerading as a maverick because he’s “politically incorrect” (a term that when self-applied invariably means “an asshole”)."
