The Smiths meet ABC
ABC's John Stossel spoke at the Clarion in Raleigh March 28. Michael will speak on media bias at the Clarion Saturday. One participant who heard the Stossel speech disagreed with the TV newsman's pro-capitalistic remarks and abruptly left the meeting uttering a one-word expletive. Nonetheless, the Smiths found the "20/20" host to be in good form as he spoke on libertarianism. From left, are, Michael's daughters Shannon Ryals, a PR wonk; Taylor, 15 on March 29; Stossel and Smith. Stossel was the guest of the Fund for American Studies, a Washington, D.C., group that supports a free-market economy.
