Libertarians on the Air! Nationwide (Actually, worldwide in many cases)

The hosts of the talk shows and other programs on the mushrooming list below are significant because: They're either self-proclaimed as "libertarian" or "Libertarian", or, if they're marked with an asterisk (*), they've simply been known to advocate more libertarian ideas than most and/or support libertarian candidates. Self-labelled or not, the hosts listed here demonstrate they can rise above the pack, see beyond short-sighted "conventional wisdom" and (even the funny ones) take reason -- and liberty -- very seriously.

Penn & Teller's "BULLSHIT!" skewers "conventional 'wisdom' " weekly 
On SHOWTIME: The show's web page is HERE
Prestidigitators Penn & Teller explore the truth behind fears and myths 
of all kinds. Regularly scheduled

Reporter / Correspondent John Stossel* of ABC-TV's "20-20" Fridays 10pm-11pm Eastern. Stossel has inspired and/or created numerous valuable documentaries which demonstrate an impressive grasp of some of the most thorough free-market and libertarian scholarship.  Interviews with him are available here and here.

  • Caution: even though comedian Bill Maher*, formerly of ABC-TV's "Politically Incorrect" has said, "...libertarians. I count myself among them..." his apparent unthinking trust of people in government shows he's definitely unclear about all that "libertarian" means. Besides, he has admitted he doesn't keep up with his reading, preferring instead to spend his time in bars and night clubs.  His swallowing whole and repeating verbatim all the latest p.c. statist-collectivist dogma and spin is ridiculous, if not infantile and pathetic. Proof that Maher is definitely NOT a libertarian may be found here.  Nonetheless, he should be congratulated for having had more real  libertarians (few as they may have been) on his show than anyone else in broadcast TV.
"This country is a one-party country. Half of that party is called Republican and half is called Democrat. It doesn't make any difference. All the really good ideas belong to the Libertarians."
