About our guests
Bill Gertz is a national security correspondent for The Washington Times. He has been with The Times since 1985.
He is the author of eight books, four of them national best-sellers. His latest book, “Deceiving the Sky: Inside Communist China’s Drive for Global Supremacy,” reveals details about the growing threat posed by the People’s Republic of China. He is also the author of the ebook “How China’s Communist Party Made the World Sick.”
Mr. Gertz also writes Inside the Ring, a weekly column that chronicles the U.S. national security bureaucracy.
Mr. Gertz has been a guest lecturer at the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Va.; the Central Intelligence Agency in Virginia; the National Defense University at Fort McNair in Washington; and the Brookings Institution in Washington. He has participated in the National Security Studies Program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies and Syracuse University Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
With 50 years as a reporter, John Stossel, a pioneer in TV consumer reporting, left mainstream media to spread liberty and free market ideas to the younger generation. After exposing con men and thieves, winning 19 Emmys, and challenging government overreach, Stossel’s shift in focus led to his skepticism of big government’s role, emphasizing the power of free markets. Departing ABC News due to differences in airing segments on free markets, Stossel launched Stossel TV, producing weekly videos reaching over two million views each. Alongside this, he founded a non-profit, Stossel in the Classroom, engaging 10 million students annually in discussions on liberty and free markets, aiming to educate through videos, teacher guides, quizzes, contests, and more. Support for these initiatives is welcome through tax-deductible donations to the Center For Independent Thought.
