I'm not sure I get the Murray Rothbard reference in this post here. If the implication is that Stossel is somehow a "Rothbardian" libertarian I think that's pretty off the mark. Stossel's more of a CATO institute "libertarian."
Yes, I know that Rothbard was one of the founding members of CATO but he subsequently broke ties with them as they softened their positions to gain favor in DC circles. Rothbard is as pure a libertarian as there ever was. A brilliant and entertaining speaker. Stossel's probably the most libertarian guy on TV, but he's no Rothbardian.
