John F. Stossel (born March 6, 1947) is an American consumer reporter, investigative journalist, author and libertarian columnist. In October 2009 Stossel left his long time home on ABC News to join the FOX Business Channel and FOX News Channel, both owned and operated by News Corp. He hosts a weekly news show entitled Stossel, on Fox Business which debuted December 10, 2009, airing in prime time every Thursday repeating on both Saturdays and Sundays. Stossel also regularly provides signature analysis, appearing on various Fox News shows, including weekly appearances on The O'Reilly Factor, in addition to writing the Fox News Blog John Stossel's Take.
In December, 2010, Stossel introduced a segment on Fox News featuring a debate between Michael Shermer and Jonathan Morris. Stossel said, "I'm an agnostic. God may exist, but I want more evidence. I've looked for it. I've gone to churches and temples, I've read the Bible, but I just don't get why most of you accept that this is the word of God. I cringe to say that in this country where most of you believe and you may like me less because I don't. Maybe you'll stop watching my program and I'll get fired, but that's the breaks. But now, as I said, I'm an agnostic, not an atheist. I remain open to the idea that there is some sort of universal spirit."
