Watson describes the target audience of the site, while also mentioning an MSNBC competitor:

“I don’t see anyone else who’s focused in the same way,” on this group, he says. “If you’re conservative you feel like someone listened to all your hopes and dreams and gave you Fox News, if you’re a baby boomer and you’re liberal it’s like there’s someone who gave you NPR… but there’s nothing that’s perfectly crafted for this generation.”
