      I feel like this article was very general... Obviously depending on a person's certain political belief they are more likely to watch the news channel that mirrors their thoughts on politics. I understand that the point of the article is for people to be more open minded with the coming election, by watching a variety of news channels/sources to get the entire political perspective rather than just focusing on what they are accustomed to. To actually absorb what it is that the other side is saying and give it a fair shot. I just thought the article would of been more informative that's all.
