"Give me a break." -- John Stossel
John F. Stossel (born March 6, 1947) is an American consumer reporter, investigative journalist, author, libertarian columnist, and former co-anchor for the ABC News show 20/20. Stossel began his journalism career as a researcher for KGW-TV and later became a consumer reporter at WCBS-TV in New York City before joining ABC News as consumer editor and reporter on Good Morning America. Stossel went on to be an ABC News correspondent, joining the weekly news magazine program 20/20. In his decades as a reporter, Stossel has received numerous honors and awards.

Stossel practices advocacy journalism, in which he often challenges conventional wisdom. His reports, a blend of commentary and reporting, reflect a libertarian political philosophy and his views on economics are largely supportive of the free market. ABC is reported to believe "his reporting goes against the grain of the established media and offers the network something fresh and different...[but] makes him a target of the groups he offends." Stossel has won nineteen Emmy awards. John Stossel is doctor honoris causa from Universidad Francisco Marroqun. Stossel has written two books recounting how his experiences in journalism shaped his socioeconomic views, Give Me a Break in 2004 and Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity in 2007

It was announced in September 2009 that Stossel would be leaving ABC News and joining Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network. He currently hosts a weekly one-hour show, Stossel and appears weekly on The O'Reilly Factor.
