John Stossel and his Burt-Reynolds-style mustache think that young people are too uninformed to vote. HeadCount’s Executive Director, Andy Bernstein defied that position on the Fox Business News Network this week. Watch as Andy builds a strong case for increased, informed youth civic engagement.
This isn’t the first time HeadCount has had to defend its mission to Stossel, who in 2008 ran this piece in an attempt to suggest that all young people, particularly those who enjoy live music, were too stupid to vote. (Our friend’s over at The Bus Project made this fantastic rebuttal.)
