Was the Press a Lapdog for Obama in 2013? Nick Gillespie on Stossel


Watch the latest video at video.foxbusiness.com

On Thursday, I'll be a guest (along with David Boaz of the Cato Institute and Sabrina Schaeffer of the Independent Women's Forum) on John Stossel's eponymous Fox Business show, which airs at 9PM ET.

We'll be talking about the gains and losses for freedom over the course of the year, so please tune in. Here's a web exclusive clip from the show, in which Stossel asks whether the media was in the tank for Obama during 2013, which saw not just a variety of scandals but the disastrous rollout of the Obamacare website. My basic take? Sure, the press has mostly got Obama's back, but it's also true that there's never been a time as thick with alternative outlets and news sources as right now.

Click to watch; about 2.30 minutes. Catch the whole show on Thursday.
