The Young Turks (TYT) have been a place for other type of news online. A place where you would find other sources and stories than in the Main-Stream Media (MSM). However, over the years it has changed. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian have for years been the main anchors of the TYT.
They have had other participate and covered various of stories. The TYT have been interesting as another source in covering the United States Elections and especially the Presidential races. Which, the covering and live-shows has enriched the conservation. However, their hypocrisy and their shady history is now coming to back to haunt them.
The TYT cannot smear others without taking into account their own lack of moral judgments and misogyny. There is a plethora of clips showing Cenk and Ana discussing celebrities and viral photos/clips as part of a segment of their show. That was happening years ago and in the early age of the TYT. Still, it is a part of the history and how the TYT represented itself. Even if the TYT have made these videos private. There are some who has catalogued them and is re-issuing them on YouTube.
Therefore, the TYT cannot run away from these clips as the TYT smears and go after other journalists. Instead of taking into account their own behaviour and actions. A news network who has said to be progressive and for the left. It seems to have lost its way. They are parroting certain objective campaigns and agendas. While they want the world to believe they are “independent” and not beholden to “corporate” interests. When the TYT has been looked into and taken questionable vulture capitalist funding and also direct DNC donor money. Therefore, “off course” this has implicated the show and the stories its telling.
Money talks… for a TYT Network who has worked so hard to get money out of politics. Fight the corrupt Washington and the politicians beholden to the lobbyist and corporate donors. It is very significant that the TYT is taking millions and dealing with the corporate like they do. That is selling out and taking away their credibility.
They are not run by the ad revenue on YouTube or by the Memberships. When they have gotten millions of dollars and these are steering the conversation. They are clearly being used and will be sounding like other MSM. When the donors and the ones paying for the operation want their end of the bargain. That is just a fact and not a smear campaign against the TYT. That is a decision the TYT have done and out of business. It is good business. They are getting paid and gotten a financial boost.
The TYT doesn’t have to account for the 5 million subscribers and whatever amount of paying members they have. They are still trying to sell it after every video. However, the TYT is most likely earning more on the DNC funding than what it earns on its members.
That means the TYT will play the songs the DNC donors wants them to sing. This isn’t progressive or anything they want to label. That’s why I in the future rather watch Jesse Dollemore, Farron Cousins or DL Hughley. They will speak more sense to a guy like me and seems real.
At this moment in time. I cannot just watch the TYT and not question their agenda. Because, it has unravelled this week. A place I used to go. To see something else and get a little balance from MSNBC and CNN. Now, that is not possible. Especially, on the covering of United States matters, which is the reason why I look at their covering of politics in general.
That ship has sailed. The TYT have lost a former viewer now. Because, I have learned enough this week and seen their true face. This is not happening because of their shady outburst against Jimmy Dore or weaponizing MeeToo. Dore might be bad at it and act a fool for all I know. However, Cenk and Ana needs to look into their own past and own creative decisions. Which wasn’t all that great….
TYT has lost a viewer on YouTube. The TYT looked better and had made itself seems legit. However, it was a house built on sand and the waves are now washing it away. Peace.
