As a TV journalist for more than 30 years, he has broken the mold.
Over that time, the often controversial commentator has bravely stood up for the little guy and made a name for himself as the preeminent defender of liberty in American media today.
So it comes as a shock and a deep concern to learn that he is in hospital fighting for his life, as reported on FOX News…
John Stossel: I have lung cancer. My medical care is excellent, but the customer service stinks.
Of course being who he is, he is using this opportunity to bitch about the crummy service and advocate for free markets in health care…
But as a consumer reporter, I have to say, the hospital’s customer service stinks. Doctors keep me waiting for hours, and no one bothers to call or email to say, “I’m running late.” Few doctors give out their email address. Patients can’t communicate using modern technology.
I get X-rays, EKG tests, echocardiograms, blood tests. Are all needed? I doubt it. But no one discusses that with me or mentions the cost. Why would they? The patient rarely pays directly. Government or insurance companies pay.
Our deepest regards and prayers go out to John. He is a hero in a field with few. Godspeed.
