Stossel: Socialist Propaganda

Published on May 1, 2018
Starving Venezuela funds socialist propaganda for English-speakers.
Venezuelans starve, but their government spends money on videos that blame capitalism for the world's problems. Some Americans lap it up. "TeleSUR English" videos get millions of views on social media. But few who watch know that TeleSUR is run by tyrannical governments like Cuba and Venezuela. "Even well-meaning people here in the United States…I see them sharing Telesur material all the time," Fergus Hodgson, who follows TeleSUR's propaganda, tells John Stossel. The ridiculous propaganda videos make claims like, "Philanthropy is a scam. It allows the super rich to influence global affairs and gain political power…as if capitalism were the solution, and not the cause of world problems." Other videos are just basic Marxist propaganda: "Workers produce all of society's wealth but take home just a small fraction of their labor." One video claims President "Trump is killing our brains with Nazi-era chemicals." To deceive viewers, TeleSUR hires American reporters. Abby Martin of California reports that Venezuelan supermarket shelves are fully stocked. Real news from other reporters show that people starve, and the average Venezuelan lost 24 pounds last year because of food shortages. People should learn the truth about TeleSUR, says Hodgson. "They should know that this is a media outlet funded by...dictatorial communists. If you share the material, you're sharing the lies of these brutal people. You're also sharing a media outlet that is funded by taking from the very poorest of the poor."

Stossel: Armed Teachers

Are armed teachers a solution to school shootings?
President Trump says one solution to school shootings is to allow teachers to be armed. He was mocked for that, but John Stossel says it's a reasonable idea. Hundreds of schools already allow it. Keene Independent School District in Texas embraces the idea. Its superintendent, Ricky Stephens, tells Stossel: "We know our staff and our teachers are gonna go [to a shooting]—do we want them to go with a pencil or go with a pistol?" People worry armed teachers will do more harm than good, but Stossel could find only one case of harm to a student. One teacher mistakenly shot at the ceiling and a student was slightly injured by falling debris. On the other hand, armed teachers have stopped school shootings. An assistant principal held a school shooter at gunpoint until police arrived. Teachers at Keene saw how, during the Florida school shooting, the security guard waited outside. "It made me mad," says one teacher who brings a gun to school. "We have to have a fighting chance if something should happen!" Keene's program goes further than Stossel would. Instead of just letting teachers with concealed-carry permits bring their weapons to school, Keene buys selected teachers guns and pays them a $50 monthly bonus for carrying. The school also requires those teachers to get 80 hours of training, and then 40 hours each year after that. Stossel says at least Keene's policy is less expensive than what his hometown does. New York City pays 5,000 police officers to patrol city schools.

How Big Government Backed Bad Science Made Americans Fat
"Government made a big mistake with the dietary guidelines," says Nina Teicholz, author of New York Times bestseller The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet. "Given the track record that they have so far, you can really make a plausible argument that they've done more harm than good." Consumption of meat, butter, eggs, and cheese were once encouraged as part of a healthy diet. Then in the 1950s, a Minnesota doctor named Ancel Keys put forth his diet-heart hypothesis, claiming that saturated fats raise cholesterol levels and cause heart attacks. Keys produced landmark studies of the relationship between diet and heart disease that transformed nutrition science. He became a powerful figure in the science community. Contemporaries who publicly questioned the validity of his findings risked losing their research funding or becoming pariahs. When the U.S. adopted dietary guidelines in 1980, Keys' recommendations became enshrined in national food policy. "We have made our policy based upon this weak kind of science called epidemiology which shows association, but not causation," Teicholz explains. "We have the situation where we just cannot reverse out of these policies that were originally based on really weak science." Keys' flawed research is one reason Americans have been getting fatter and unhealthier for decades. Despite major advances in treatment, heart disease is still the leading cause of death for men and women. "The really dominant view is that the dietary guidelines are good...and the reason America is fat and sick is that America has failed to follow them," Teicholz says. "That's when you start looking at the data...By every food category you can find, we have faithfully, dutifully followed the guidelines." Today the science behind Keys' dietary findings is once again being challenged. Teicholz has launched the Nutrition Coalition, which aims to inform food policy with rigorous science. "Our goal is educate people about how the dietary guidelines have not been successful...and to bring this alternative policy viewpoint to policy makers," says Teicholz. "More and more experts are willing to talk out about the science, and I think that will support change." Produced by Alexis Garcia. Camera by Jim Epstein.
