Fox Business Network host John Stossel is taking on “the ruling class” of politics, and their strident influence on the 2016 election during a prime-time broadcast at 9 p.m. ET on Friday.

“America’s elite media, university professors, Silicone Valley — they’re all on the same side,” Mr. Stossel said. “They vote Democrat, and they insist you do too. After all, that’s what civilized people do. This year its never been more clear who the ruling class wants to elect and keep in power. They want the left in charge.”

His guests for the hourlong program include Nicholas Sarwark, chairman of the Libertarian Party; Joe Concha, media analyst for The Hill; Julian Sanchez, a senior fellow at the CATO Institute; Kat Timpf, politics reporter at National Review, and Ben Shapiro, a columnist and radio host.

“America is often described as a society without the Old World’s aristocracy. Yet we still have people who feel entitled to boss the rest of us around. The elite media, the political class, Hollywood and university professors think their opinions are obviously correct, so they must educate us peasants,” Mr. Stossel wrote in a Fox News op-ed, noting that this group “has replaced the church”, yet remain decidedly close-minded.

“OK, so they don’t call us as ‘peasants’ anymore,” Mr. Stossel wrote. “Now we are ‘deplorables’ — or conservatives or libertarians. Or Trump supporters. The elite have a lot of influence over how we see things.”

In addition, the Fox Business Network will air every presidential debate Sunday night beginning at 8 p.m.
