Tonight on The Independents: Red Meat Wednesday, With John Stossel, Jalen Rose on School Choice (!), the USA Freedom Act, Two Minutes' Hate, and More!


Tonight's episode of The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, with re-airs three hours later) features the triumphant (if tardy!) return of Fox Human Resources Director Bernie Maxsmith, who will deliver your very best Two Minutes' Hate. It will also feature the Independents debut of basketball star-turned-commentator Jalen Rose, who will talk about his Detroit charter school the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy, his recent OC Register essay "When a ZIP code determines a child's future," and his participation in a video called "Educational Choice Now." Watch that below:

Speaking of basketball, Party Panelists Paul Mecurio (Wall Street lawyer-turned comedian) and Monica Crowley (Fox News analyst, radio host, author of What the (Bleep) Just Happened? The Happy Warrior's Guide to the Great American Comeback) are slated to discuss: A) the recent controversies over ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith being suspended for his comments about domestic violence after NFL player Ray Rice was suspended (for only twice the amount of time) for actually beating up a lady; B) the latest Israel/Hamas developments; C) immigration policy debates; and D) Hillary Clinton's latest iteration of foot-in-mouth disease about her speaking career.

The co-hosts will talk about the Senate's version of the USA Freedom Act, and John Stossel himself will talk about the importance of being allowed to experiment—especially on yourself. (You won't want to miss the personal details!)
