COMMENTARY BY JOHN STOSSEL

  • Academic Jargon By John Stossel

    Seven academic journals were recently hoaxed into publishing ridiculous studies on topics like "rape culture and queer performativity" in dog parks.

    The editor of only one of the journals, Roberto Refinetti of Sexuality and Culture, agreed to talk to me about the hoax and whether academics learned anything from being duped.

  • Your Fair Share By John Stossel

    Do you pay enough taxes? What is enough?

  • Hoax By John Stossel

    If you are an American college professor, the way you get a raise or tenure is by getting papers published in "academic journals."

    The stupidity of these journals says a lot about what's taught at colleges today.

  • Welfare for the Rich By John Stossel

    When I hear "welfare payments," I think "poor people."

  • Bogus Gun Research By John Stossel

    Last week Rep. Nancy Pelosi warned President Donald Trump that if he declared an "emergency" to build a wall, "think what a president with different values can present... Why don't you declare (the epidemic of gun violence in America) an emergency, Mr. President? I wish you would... A Democratic president can declare emergencies as well."

  • A Better School? By John Stossel

    There must be a better way to keep kids interested in school than drugging them.

    Today, 1 in 5 school-age boys is diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Many are given drugs that are supposed to help them pay attention.

  • Slum by the Bay By John Stossel

    San Francisco is one of the richest cities it the world. It's given us music, technology and elegant architecture.

  • The Seen vs. the Unseen By John Stossel

    Sunday is the Super Bowl.    

    I look forward to playing poker and watching. It's easy to do both because in a three-hour-plus NFL game there are just 11 minutes of actual football action.    

  • School Choice By John Stossel

    It's School Choice Week.

    School choice is a noble cause. In much of America, parents have little or no control over where their kids attend school. Local governments assign schools by ZIP code.

  • Shutdown 'Crisis' By John Stossel

    This government shutdown is now longer than any in history. The media keep using the word "crisis."

    "Shutdown sows chaos, confusion and anxiety!" says The Washington Post. "Pain spreads widely."
