Discussing Government’s Role in Baseball on Stossel (Tonight)

I’ll be on Stossel tonight discussing the government’s role in policing the national pastime. I say laissez-nous fair. Here’s a description of the show.

Government bullies say they’re working hard to protect us and our interests. From crackdowns on unpaid interns, to congressional hearings on baseball players using chewing tobacco, to outraged senators proposing legislation banning carry-on baggage fees, to union bullies and their government cronies bullying kids into attending only government run schools, John Stossel says “give me a break!” These busybodies do far more harm than good. There are only two ways to do things in life – voluntarily or by force. Voluntarily is better. Government should stick to what the Constitution limits it to – keeping the peace, and keeping people from stealing and killing us—and butt out of everywhere else.

The show airs at 8pm on Fox Business. It will re-air Thursday at midnight, Saturday at 7pm and 11pm, and Sunday at 10pm.

    As long as the sports leagues–and especially heavily-taxpayer-subsidized MLB–can hide behind their antitrust exemptions, there is no fair to the faireings.

  2. Marc Schneider says:

    Good luck, JC, but anything associated with Fox News turns my stomach. The show’s description is what I would expect from the likes of John Stossel. It’s nice to see that he has such an open mind.

  3. Yaramah says:

    Discussing the government? or just nodding in agreement with Stossel? I’ve often found that people like Stossel wouldn’t have any meaning in their lives if there wasn’t a government to complain about.

  4. JC says:

    I’ve got no problem with John. I was happy to be his guest, and I would gladly do so again.
