David Horowitz was a consumer reporter who educated the public with his Emmy-winning syndicated "Fight Back!" TV show. "Fight Back! With David Horowitz" ran from 1976 to 1992, keeping viewers informed of potential product defects and rip-offs. He tested commercial claims on-air, as when he replicated a Timex commercial that had a watch strapped to an outboard motor and submerged in water – in the commercial and on Horowitz' show, the watch emerged still working. Horowitz engaged viewers with humor even as he showcased poor customer service and faulty products.

Details of death: Died in Los Angeles of complications of dementia at the age of 81.
