Fox News doesn't want young voters to vote. The people of Fox project their own ignorance others. They are a DISGRACE to our country. I want everyone to vote, whatever their age. Fox News is TERRIFIED that people might vote.

This is my war face. Yes, Fox you should be scared of me. I"m under thirty and I vote. QUAKE IN TERROR.

Nothing scares Fox News more than anyone under 30 voting. Nothing! That should tell you everything you need to know about the disgraceful people.

I agree Ashley. Young people are very informed and they are not apathetic.

If these "uninformed" young people should stay home on election day, then the terminally misinformed Fox viewers should be put under house arrest for the day.

Fox Fascist news/indoctrination insults humans as a whole! Hitler was defeated but that's as far as it went. These are the new Nazi's

Hitler made the people hate Jews and democracy.

Karl Rove made people hate Democrats and democracy.

Faux News only wants conservative voters to go to the polls to vote.

Noted. Thanks, Ashley. I had to laugh at the headline.....thought to myself, "Fox News insults ALL voters."
I've got 4 young adults I will be taking to vote. My 2 over-30 kids also vote in every election, just as I've taught them. I fill out the sample ballot and discuss it with them so they know what to do. Often, the ballot is fairly long, filled with confusing propositions; so I study them for weeks prior. Although our state mails "Voter Education Guides" out, they are never less than 1/2-inch thick.

Fox new insults everyone. Too bad their fans don't realize it. I get my news from The Daily Show and the Colbert Report. They are intelligent and well informed, (though sarcastic) unlike Fox. It's a shame to have to get your news from the Comedy Channel.

Faux News probably knows that younger people are not buying into their "Fair and Balanced " bullshit. But, they have no qualms about their "Big Lie," motto, having taken the idea from Hitler.
Jason, Hitler did not make people hate the Jews, the sentiment was running under the surface...he did inflame it, however.
This is what dangerous leaders often do, take a negative undercurrent they know to be useful to their agenda, and puff it up. That's what Milosevich did in Serbia, not that long ago. That's what the hate mongering pseudo-Christians do, here, and in Africa, in regard to homosexuality.

Why stop with younger voters?

They are so disgruntled, they don't know who to attack next.

It is the old keep 'em dumb tactic and Fox news is particularly not known for it's highbrow content from Glen Beck's chalk board to Sarah Palin's uncontrolled farting I mean I know she has been quite a stranger to the idea of dignity with the recent drunken ass kicking the Palin family had to her uncontrollable farting on air. Stil, Fox is consistent on such issues particularly given that Fox News viewers are consistently the least informed on every issue so don't expect them to be informative on politics especially for younger viewers, Sesame street is far more informative.

"Do we want them [young people] to vote if they don't know the issues?" Harris Faulkner asked Wednesday afternoon.
"No!" Lisa Kennedy Montgomery answered. "You absolutely don't!"
"Do you really want to motivate them to vote and be ignorant at the polls?" Faulkner continued."

In other words, a typical Fox show. Filled with obnoxious fools. I only ever get this stuff secondhand because I never watch Fox "news" because I know and have know since Rupert Murdoch brought his sorry ass to this country and started polluting our airways and newsprint with his own particular brand of "wealthism - which I define as, if you are wealthy you are good and if you are not it is your fault and you are a terrible person) and outright lies to further the extremist agenda he pushes around the world.

I only see this stuff on Rachel's show, sometimes Lawrence's when I can stay awake that late and through a few wonderful people here who keep me abreast of what those looney tunes are up to. And the rare times something egregious makes it into the serious media which I do read and watch. What I find most amusing about Fox is that it is filled with geriatric mean old men and a 20 and 30 something beautiful young women who would NOT talk to them at any other function or place - unless they get paid. Which they do here. Which makes them more members of the "oldest profession" in my opinion, than journalists. And none of those frothing geriatric republicans are either. They're just woman hating men who want what they want and want everyone else to have it that way too come hell or high water. It isn't enough for these fools to do things their way, and in the spirit of this free nation, allow all others the same freedom. No, they are like the 1% of all ages, they must command all to do their bidding and god forbid anyone else think for themselves. I'd like to introduce them all personally and one at a time to Lisbeth Salander. (If you don't know how that is, first, I'm sorry for you, and second, read Steig Larrson's wonderful trilogy beginning with the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.) But that's just me. :^)

As hardly anyone under 60 watches Faux Noise these days, I don't think they will have insulted that many young viewers. And if any young people were watching, they probably wouldn't have understood they were insulted ;-)

However, it rather shows both the ignorance and the desperation of this "news" station that they tried to influence a part of their viewing population that doesn't even exist: the young and Democratic voting viewer. Republicans must be really scared they are going to lose.

Besides Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert on Comedy Central, check out John Oliver on HBO, who is doing 10 to 15 segments digging into one topic. And still being funny about it. While horrifying us.

Who hasn't Faux News insulted? The sad thing is they insult the same people who turn around continue to watch their garbage and the Faux News brainwashed do not even know they've been insulted.

The Future of the country is the MOST important thing for young people. After all, they are the ones who will be dealing with it much longer than the older people.
Thanks Ashley, and get out the VOTE!
