Slum by the Bay

February 5, 2019
John Stossel

San Francisco is one of the richest cities it the world. It’s given us music, technology and elegant architecture.

Now it gives us filthy homeless encampments.

One urban planner told me, “I just returned from the Tenderloin (a section of San Francisco). It’s worse than slums of India, Haiti, Africa!”

So I went to San Francisco to make a video about that.

I’ve never seen slums in Africa, but I’ve seen them in Haiti and India.

Ain't gonna change.
Nothing can "fix" San Francisco, except...

... the "Big One".

I'll never visit the city again.

Last time I was downtown my wife and I were accosted by homeless panhandlers right outside the hotel.

Let them rot in their own filth.
