'At ABC, it was like, 'This is mainstream. This is correct. And then there are you whackos,' said Fox Business host John Stossel. Stossel made a keynote speech at Reason Weekend 2012, Reason Foundation's annual donor event. He talked about why liberty is counter-intuitive to most people and how being accepted by conservatives more easily than by liberals surprised him. He also shared horror stories from his days working on 20/20 at ABC, where he says anchors like Peter Jennings would regularly look at him with disgust. About 35 minutes. Filmed by Joshua Swain and Anthony Fisher. Edited by Zach Weissmueller.
