KALAMAZOO -- Broadcast journalist and author John Stossel is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Western Michigan University's Shaw Theatre.
Stossel's presentation, free and open to the public, is being sponsored by the WMU College Republicans. The group says Stossel's topic is ``Freedom and its Enemies: Why Greed is Good.''
``He has a message that is very in line with our group's goals,'' said WMU College Republican Chairwoman Megan Buwalda, noting that she expects his message to be pro-capitalist and pro-business.
``We thought it was about time a speaker like that came to Western,'' she said.
Co-anchor of ABC TV's ``20/20,'' Stossel has won numerous Emmy awards and written several books.
Following his talk, he's expected to answer audience questions and be available for book signing.
