Scared Stiff? Watch John Stossel

Tonight, John Stossel of ABC News offers a special report entitled “Scared Stiff: Worried in America.” The two-hour program, which is a special report of ABC News’ “20/20” and airs at 9pm Eastern, is a follow-up to Stossel’s very first special 12 years ago, “Are We Scaring You to Death?”

Among Stossel’s interviewees tonight are two familiar faces for Cato fans: adjunct fellow Veronique de Rugy (of AEI) and former visiting fellow John Mueller (of Ohio State University). Vero will discuss her research into the billions of dollars wasted in the name of “terrorism defense” and John will put the terrorism risk into context by comparing it to the far-more likely risk of drowning in a bathtub or being struck by a deer.
