Nov. 21, 2007

KALAMAZOO--National newscaster and author John Stossel will speak in Shaw Theatre on the campus of Western Michigan University Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 7 p.m.

Stossel's presentation, "Freedom and its Enemies: Why Greed is Good," is sponsored by the WMU College Republicans and is free and open to the public. Following the speech, there will be a question-and-answer session, and Stossel will be available for book signing.

Stossel is the host of ABC TV's "20/20," and his reporting is highly acclaimed, having won 19 Emmy Awards and the George Foster Peabody Award, and being honored five times by the National Press Club. His books have been New York Times bestsellers.

"We expect to welcome a large turnout to Mr. Stossel's speech," says Megan Buwalda, WMU College Republicans chair. "We hope the speech exposes students and the community to a diversity of viewpoint and encourages civil discussion and debate."
