The Young Turks (TYT) is the biggest YouTube News Channel and the supposed challenger to the Mainstream Media (MSM). However, with the time the difference between TYT and the MSM has withered. The difference between TYT and MSNBC is now now bare minimum.
The TYT difference is the news anchors Cenk Ugyur and Anna Kasparian. The TYT isn’t doing what they used to do. They are instead being smear-artists and going after other credible journalists.
This being either Aaron Maté, Glenn Greenwald or Richard Medhurst. The TYT even went after Julian Assange. Just like they have targeted former employee and comedian Jimmy Dore. The TYT have no quarrels doing this.
It is tragic that things gone this far. That Cenk is saying this about other journalists without any real evidence. He targets people and smears them. He just wants to prove a point and targets them directly. What happened to have any sort of integrity at TYT?
That seems to be lost… and the Network needs to think about themselves. The TYT needs to consider their approaches. They are not reporting news or becoming a viable news source. When they are doing this to credible journalists.
Yes. Nobody is perfect and have done anyone wrong. The TYT goes directly at Dore at his wrongs. However, the same TYT never takes any responsibility for the years of Howard Stern content and “camel toe” segments. Therefore, the TYT isn’t sincere in this. Neither is Cenk who said he wouldn’t even sleep with someone on live-air. That’s why this TYT isn’t what it seems.
I used to watch TYT to get another experience and another perspective to U.S. politics. However, the attacks on Maté, Greenwald or Dore. What else can the TYT edit in their favour? What else can the TYT say or do to save face?
Not like the TYT has taken any responsibility for these smear campaigns and how they are dwelling into these shady tactics. This is not what reliable networks does, but what people does to save face. They are also editing things to make them worse, but not taking any sort of account of their own past behaviour. Even telling the public. That if you watch Jimmy or read anything from Glenn. Just buzz off and don’t return.
That’s what’s happening and its distasteful. Dishonest and disingenuous at best. Disrespectful to the viewer and to the ones who follows them.
This isn’t TYT I used to watch and I’m sad that it turned out like this. Peace.
