Cavuto’s Speed Reading Fraud

Reported by Guest Blogger - September 15, 2011 -

Neil Cavuto kicked off Fox News’ “Regulation Nation” week on Monday (9/12/11) by hosting speed reader Howard Berg reading 25,000 pages of regulations. But somehow Cavuto forgot to mention that Berg has a less than stellar record – and one that makes it very much in his interest to do away with regulations: As Media Matters noted, Berg was reprimanded by the FTC in 1998 for "false" and "deceptive" claims referring to his Mega Speed Reading program. The FTC said Mega Speed Reading was "not successful" in helping people to read fast. He was on an infomercial with convicted felon Kevin Trudeau. Trudeau had to pay $500,000 in consumer redress.
