Nick News With Linda Ellerbee Special “Kids Pick The President: The Issues” Airing September 17, 2012
A new Nick News with Linda Ellerbee special will air on Nickelodeon on Spetember 17, 2012 at 8pm ET/PT. The episode is called “Kids Pick The President: The Issues.” Here’s a description of the episode from the network:
In the special, kids across the country rank and talk about important issues including same-sex marriage, education, healthcare, taxes, immigration, Iran, energy and jobs. The special features video of presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney talking about the issues, and kids sharing their opinions on what the candidates have to say.
Here’s what Linda Ellerbee had to say about the upcoming special:
A smart fellow once wrote that kids tell you what they think, not what they think they should think. We at Nick News agree. We in America choose our presidents based on many things: character, personality, family, religion, their commercials, even their looks, but as many of the kids in this show said, ‘We should be focusing on the issues.’
