Drew Carey and Reason Foundation Launch Video Journalism Project, Reason.tv Carey hosts videos examining issues like traffic congestion, immigration

and eminent domain

    LOS ANGELES, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hosting multiple game
 shows (The Price Is Right and Power of 10), making stand-up comedy
 appearances, and being Cleveland's biggest sports fan isn't all Drew Carey
 is up to these days. The popular comedian is now entering the world of
 journalism, hosting short documentaries that examine hot-button issues like
 immigration, eminent domain, drug laws and traffic congestion.
     "We need Reason to help fight the stupid drug laws, the stupid
 immigration laws, and stupid big government in general," says Carey.
     "Drew's unique perspective and creativity are going to change and
 enliven the country's policy debates," declares David Nott, president of
 Reason Foundation. "Anyone who believes in choice, individual liberty and
 economic freedom is going to feel right at home at Reason.tv."
     Reason.tv is a new online community that will showcase the best free
 market ideas and videos on the Internet. Reason.tv gives you the
 opportunity to create videos, share videos and suggest topics for Drew
 Carey's upcoming documentaries.
     In the first Reason.tv video, Gridlock, released today, Carey delves
 into a problem aggravating nearly everyone: traffic congestion. Carey meets
 Josh Lipking, whose 16-mile commute should take 25 minutes. On Los Angeles'
 slow- moving, jam-packed roads it takes Josh 90 minutes -- each way. That's
 three hours a day, lost.
     Carey, who makes a living giving away great prizes, hires a helicopter
 to chauffeur Josh to work, showing him how easy his commute could be
 without that nightmarish traffic.
     Since helicopters aren't the answer for everyone, Carey details how
 cities around the world are using high-tech solutions to build tunnels,
 elevated highways, and innovative bridges that reduce bottlenecks and make
 it easier to get around. But Carey doesn't want taxpayers stuck paying for
 these much- needed projects, so he explores how the government can get the
 private sector to foot the bill.
     "I'd love to own a freeway in Los Angeles," Carey says.
     In upcoming documentaries, Carey and Reason.tv will examine the
 government's abuse of eminent domain, the immigration debate and medical
 marijuana laws.
