Anderson Cooper Doesn't Think Reporters Should Vote

Anderson Cooper says he does not plan on voting in the upcoming presidential election and doesn’t think other reporters should either.

“I don’t think reporters should vote,” the 48-year-old CNN anchor said on The Howard Stern Show. “A lot of reporters don’t vote. It’s a thing.”

“I’ve had the debate. There have been years where I have voted because sometimes I thought maybe I should. I’ve gone back and forth on it,” Anderson continued. “I don’t want to be influenced one way or the other. My role is to ask questions.”

“I honestly can’t remember,” Anderson said about his last time voting. “I don’t like feeling that I’ve taken a stand. I think [voting] is something [reporters] actively need to fight against and push against. It’s not my role.”

Anderson Cooper Tells Donald Trump He's Using the 'Argument of a Five-Year-Old' (Video)

Anderson Cooper shut down Donald Trump while discussing the unflattering photo he retweeted of his opponent Ted Cruz‘s wife.

“I thought it was a nice picture of Heidi,” the Republican presidential candidate said during the CNN Town Hall on Tuesday night (March 29) in Milwaukee, Wis.

“Come on, you’re running for president of the United States,” Anderson replied.

“Look, I didn’t start it,” Trump said, to which Anderson responded, “Sir, with all due respect, that’s the argument of a five-year-old.”

“It is not!” Donald replied. Anderson continued, “The argument of a five-year-old is, ‘He started it’!”
