Inside Move: Stossel fodder for eBay wags

$2.25 the highest bid for reporter's soiled 'credibility'

John Stossel’s credibility is no longer up for grabs. The ABC News correspondent was on display this week when an eBay customer auctioned off the reporter’s “credibility” in the wake of his inaccurate “20/20” report on the organic food industry. The posting advertised that “for an unlimited time only, John Stossel’s credibility is open to the highest bidder! You can join the ranks of Monsanto, DuPont, ConAgra and Procter & Gamble and have your own piece of John!” The anti-Stossel poster was presumably making a dig at the fact that Stossel has collected substantial fees for speaking to large corporations whose side he has also reported on. Before it was yanked from the site, Stossel’s credibility drew four bids. The highest was a scant $2.25.
