If you watch Fox News on a regular basis you’re probably familiar with Daily Caller video reporter Michelle Fields, who is now on the news channel nearly every day, appearing frequently on Fox and Friends, Hannity and Your World with Neil Cavuto as one of the news channel’s contributors.

Fields, 24, gained national recognition last year for exposing the occupy movement and uncovering that occupiers were often being paid to protest by liberal groups. (She makes a cameo appearance in Occupy Unmasked for her reporting on the occupy movement at the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference.)

She was first introduced to libertarianism by her brother, Michael, who introduced “me to Ayn Rand, and eventually got me interested in politics on campus. I eventually became the president of the College Libertarians,” she said of her time at Pepperdine University.

Fields said she believes the upcoming generation should have an honest conversation about government debt and better educate themselves on economic time bombs such as the federal deficit and healthcare reform.

“I have noticed amongst young people, there is a problem with economic literacy.  I want to try to educate young people about economics,” Fields said. “Obamacare is obviously going to affect us all.”

Fields said living in the Internet age, it shouldn’t be difficult for young conservatives to find opportunities to get involved.

“Carry a camera to local, grassroots activities and start a blog,” she said. “We need to get more good, outspoken young voices on campuses.
