"I’m not saying we should have a test or something. But this endless cheerleading — let’s go to the rock concerts and register the kids. And the kids aren’t paying attention. And it’s important in a democracy, it’s important to vote. And these are important issues. The people who participate ought to be the ones who pay attention…I’m just saying we shouldn’t have these “Get Out The Vote” campaigns and make these statements: “Everyone has to vote. It’s your patriotic duty!” Well if you’re not paying attention, I think it’s your patriotic duty not to vote."
This is the point where you say "Hey Zandar, aren't regular FOX News watchers the least informed and least aware among audiences of news networks?" And I of course reply that you would be correct, and that it's interesting that John Stossel would bring that very subject up when it comes to the damage that low-information voters can cause in a democratic electorate.
Sadly, that damage has already been done...and will continue to be done t our political system for years to come. If Stossel was serious about stopping this kind of damage, he'd convince people to get their information from basically an other source than FOX itself.
