Me vs. Mr. Moustache

Over at AlterNet, you will find my review of John Stossel’s new book, Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity, for your reading pleasure.

Stossel makes his living pandering to those who are hostile to intellectualism, by reassuring them repeatedly that progressive government programs, advocates of various stripes, and experts of any credential are the bane of our society, and this book is no exception. Doing my part to counter the conservative—or, as Stossel will claim, “libertarian”—media roar, I subjected myself to Myths, and gave it a good debunking.
