Cable News is treating politics like sports and its making us less informed and more polarized.

Day after day, at the gym, I see on TV stuck on CNN and the other on FOX News and see people watch over and over again and gobble up all the noise and hate. The problem is it’s not real news. Please stay informed of true news stories, from places like NPR, PBS, and Reuters.

The news outlets that are considered trustworthy by every ideological group don’t equate to the most popular outlets, however. Americans say they get most of their political news from local TV, Facebook, and major networks like CNN and Fox News. Because of this, we are in an age of “alternative facts” and we feel we can still debate things like climate change, even when they are scientific fact.
