John Stossel will debut his new show on FOX Business tonight with an interview of T. Boone Pickens and his Pickens Plan. Forget the wind mills. Those didn’t work. We’re on to natural gas and corn ethanol. Stossel says Pickens doesn’t know the “most basic facts” about his own plan – doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Can’t wait to see this tonight. Update 1-23-10 – new video added below.
Stossel and Pickens met before the show. Stossel quoted a line from Picken’s own website about the nation’s ability to convert to natural gas in 10 years. Pickens said he had never made that statement. Stossel persisted – it’s on your own website. Pickens finally said, “well, it doesn’t matter.”
The pre-show discussion moved to corn ethanol, which Pickens favors and Stossel says is a scam. This should be a good show.
