Unsubscribed from all TYT channels on YouTube. I can’t stomach them or that bald headed schmo that does the studio radio for them.

to try to get a political foothold, which has failed. Once a conservative RW blowhard, always one at heart (including a misogynistic, genocide-defending, and racist history). And Cenk supporters don't dare point to his Armenian female cohost as some suggestion he is NOT. You review his long record, especially since leaving MSNBC.

I am not particularly fond of how he has handled himself as a Bernie supporter, but he’s no Trumper. In the grand scheme of things, he’s on the right side of history. He’d like to bend the moral arc of the universe toward justice a little faster than most of us.

The Young Turks Union Fight Gets Nastier With Charges of Retaliatory Firing, Withholding Raises

A contentious union campaign by the staff of the progressive news network The Young Turks (TYT) is growing even more combative. Today, the union filed two separate unfair labor practice charges alleging that the company and its CEO, the popular liberal media figure Cenk Uygur, withheld wage increases and bonuses from employees as a result of the union drive, and that they fired an employee as retaliation for union activity—charges that Uygur denies.

On February 12, about 15 TYT employees announced their intention to unionize with IATSE. They expected to gain voluntary recognition from their famously liberal employer through a simple check of union cards, but were spurned. The company insisted on holding a secret ballot election at work in order to recognize the union, a tactic typically considered to be anti-union. (Uygur disputed this, telling In These Times that “Voluntary recognition means any recognition process outside of an NLRB election.” But card check is generally understood to be what unions mean by “voluntary recognition.”)

I used to like him, but then I read his history and his constant genocide denying and was turned off. The final straws were how he acted in 2016 and and this election, 2020.
