Fox News’ John Stossel presented his latest bit of vile “reporting” to tweedledum, tweedledummer and tweedledumbest (the Fox morning show team of Brian Kilmeade, Steve Doocy and Elizabeth Hasselbeck) and revealed just what a horrible human being he really is.
He dressed up as a homeless person and begged for money for an hour. One hour. And he got a little over 10 bucks, so he extrapolates that out and says, “If I did this for an eight-hour day I would’ve made 90 bucks. Twenty-three thou for a year. Tax-free.” Well yes John, if your extrapolations are correct, you could sit outside all day every day, freezing in the winter and boiling in the summer, risking death in any number of ways and publicly humiliating yourself and make “23 thou.” And on that incredibly flimsy basis he says that most homeless people are just faking it and therefore you shouldn’t give them money. He offers not a shred of evidence for this, of course. In fact, the only person here who is faking it is him. Seriously, you’re pretty much a failure as a human being.
