Like father, like daughter
Action 4 problem-solving news segments on KNBC Los Angeles pave the way for the investigative consumer reporting features and special reports on news programs across the country.
The Horowitz family's guidance is sought by consumers, businesses, law enforcement, the government and in personal appearances. Fight Back! has won 15 Emmy Awards, over 400 awards from government and citizens groups, and has helped to draft over 50 pieces of consumer-related legislation in America.
The show is a weekly half-hour syndicated program along with accompanying segments on local 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. newscasts.

Fight Back! and Don’t Get Ripped Off
The organization promotes public awareness of consumer issues and supports young people in journalism careers. The foundation endows the David Horowitz Scholarship Fund with a gift that is awarded annually to students at Bradley University.
David Horowitz is held hostage during a live news broadcast. The “gun” turns out to be a toy replica. Horowitz helps to draft legislation in 14 states regarding banning, or otherwise regulating, look a-like weapons and toys so they can be easily identified instead of being confused with real weapons. This leads Congress to pass a bill regulating the shape and colors of toy guns, so they no longer appear realistic.
