NPR’s “Get My Vote”
Saturday, June 7th, 2008
I often cite Thomas Paine’s famous statement that voting for representatives is the right by which all other rights are protected. But this day in age — living in a “videocracy” — platforms like MySpace and YouTube are arguably as important. Now we can add NPR to that list as well.
I just filed this report for NPR Sunday Soapbox about the new Get My Vote initiative, an interactive forum where you can share what it would take to get your vote, and why. If you participate some of your stuff might end up on air!
