Fox News Instigator John Stossel Shows Up at the AFL-CIO

Imagine our surprise last week when Fox Business correspondent John Stossel made an unexpected visit to the AFL-CIO building. Stossel’s previous coverage of the labor movement include a special on public education that blames teachers’ unions for the failings of public schools, an interview with Transport Workers (TWU) Local 100 President John Samuelsen, in which Stossel claims unions impede job growth and several entries on his FoxBusiness.com blog where he argues against the minimum wage and against regulations on unpaid internships.

Stossel is well-known for his “gotcha” journalism, so when he claimed he was in our lobby because our building was one of the most beautiful in D.C., we weren’t buying it—neither did the other unions where he showed up unannounced, also to film their "beautiful buildings.” (Think James O'Keefe.)


Although you might be seeing selectively manipulated footage of the AFL-CIO and other union buildings in Stossel’s next exposé on “big labor,” we thought we’d share with you the unique décor and top-of-the-line amenities in our building he might have highlighted had he gone beyond our entryway, including our state-of-the-art hydration system at top left.


And our expansive conference rooms outfitted with the latest cutting-edge technology.

you!).

I suppose it's too much to hope that the two of them disappear up each other's ass?
