A lawsuit Price filed Tuesday claims that ABC's "20/20" defamed him when it suggested otherwise, portraying him as a "hypocrite and thief" who financed an extravagant lifestyle with church funds.

ABC News correspondent John Stossel will anchor "The Trouble With Lawyers, " an hourlong report Jan. 2 at 10 p.m. If the title sounds as if the program has a point of view, it's no accident. In a news release from ABC, Stossel says of attorneys: "They have become terribly destructive . . . harmful to our inventiveness, our goodwill toward one another, our freedom to make choices."

ABC News correspondent John Stossel shot back at his critics at the Environmental Working Group, calling them liars who "brainwashed" a group of California parents into demanding that their children be edited out of Stossel's "Tampering With Nature" program airing tonight at 10. Separately, ABC News cleared a Stossel producer who, it was claimed, had asked an educator to reenact a scene from a speech for the ABC cameras.

Bowing to pressure, ABC News said Tuesday that it will remove an interview with California children from its John Stossel program Friday, "Tampering With Nature," after their parents complained that they were misled about the news special. The network said it had concluded that Stossel did nothing wrong, but in an unusual move will excise that interview out of sensitivity to the parents.

One night recently on ABC's "20-20," reporter John Stossel tried to put a hammerlock on the "sport" known as pro wrestling. An ex-wrassler spilled his considerable guts to Stossel about how the punches are pulled, the flips planned, the cuts self-inflicted and the matches fixed. Saturdays my old man used to let me stay up till 11 to watch "Live Wrestling." Go, Stossel, go. Expose these bleach-blond pork bellies as the frauds they really are.

Fox Moving "Front Page" to New York: The Fox Broadcasting prime-time television news magazine will shift its base from Los Angeles because New York is "where the real culture of TV news thrives," Fox TV Stations Inc. Chief Executive Les Hinton said. But Fox insiders said the move is really motivated by a need to be closer to the "talent pool" of anchors and correspondents. Virtually all the network news magazines are based in New York and so are many of the syndicated tabloid TV shows.

ABC's John Stossel has struck a blow for journalistic safety by being struck with a blow--and suing the striker. Stossel, a consumer reporter for the ABC-TV newsmagazine "20/20," received $425,000 in a settlement in New York with David Schults, a wrestler who allegedly boxed his ears while Stossel was doing an expose on wrestling, a lawyer for Stossel said. Stossel allegedly was "struck with an open hand" on both ears by Schults on Dec.

Is ABC News "20/20" correspondent John Stossel afraid of me? On his June 29 broadcast story on sensitive cartoons, he didn't have the guts to identify me by name. Instead he just reported, "Porky Pig's a problem too, at least according to a stuttering activist who once demanded Time Warner retire Porky to protect children from being tormented." What Stossel further failed to report was that as a result of my seven years of discussions with Warner Bros., they created an online poster using Porky and his Looney Tunes friends as advocates for children who are different in some way. And Warner Bros.
