Anderson Cooper doesn't think he's voting in the 2016 elections—and doesn't think other reporters should either, Mediaite reports. "I don’t think I’m gonna vote," the CNN reporter said Monday on the Howard Stern Show. "I don’t think reporters should vote." Cooper went on to say that "a lot of reporters" don't go to the ballot booth, per Just Jared. "I've had the debate," he said. "There have been years where I have voted because sometimes I thought maybe I should. I’ve gone back and forth on it. I don’t want to be influenced one way or the other. My role is to ask questions." Cooper also said he "honestly can't remember" the last time he voted. "I don't like the feeling that I've taken a stand." Stern's reaction? "This might be the most shocking thing I’ve heard you say," the radio host said. (Click to see celebrities who support Trump or celebrities who support Sanders.)
