Teen Seen @ Your Land/My Land

Your Land/My Land: Election'12
by Jonathan Horowtiz

This piece truly makes you view the other side of the argument. Politics is one of the few things that accounts for the polarization in America, and to me this piece succeeds at having the viewer become aware of the polarization in our politics by listening and viewing the two equally biased news channels. It's really a fabulous piece!
