October 4 Sinai Forum Features John Stossel
The 56 th season of the Sinai Forum Presented by Purdue University North Central will present “An Evening with John Stossel” at 7 p.m. in the Elston Middle School Auditorium.
Stossel recently joined the Fox Network and will have a weekly show on the Fox Business Network. He was a noted ABC News correspondent who was co-anchor of "20/20," and authored two national bestsellers. His topic will focus on the up-to-the minute questions on peoples' minds. He has earned 19 Emmy Awards, has been honored five times by the National Press Club for excellence in consumer reporting, was presented the George Polk Award for Outstanding Local Reporting and he received the George Foster Peabody award.
His “20/20” reports addressed subjects ranging from addiction to parenting. He was featured in the recurring segment, “Give Me a Break,” presenting commentary – and a skeptical look – at an array of issues that range from pop culture controversies to government regulation.
Stossel is also known for addressing issues that face Americans today and asking questions and getting answers. His first special, “Are We Scaring Ourselves to Death?” examined prevalent fears of things ranging from crime to chemicals. His “Blame Game” special examined the growing tendency to blame misfortune on others. In “John Stossel Goes to Washington," he looked at how under both Democrats and Republicans, government continues to expand.
A book signing will follow Stossel's talk.
