Liberal presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) envisioned an economic crash just around the corner, and the far-left hosts of The Young Turks could not contain their excitement. It seems Warren and The Young Turks share the same delusion about the state of the current economy being awful. Young Turks co-host Ana Kasparian began by applauding Warren for “finally sounding alarms on what the reality is of our economic situation.” She accused the media of regurgitating “talking points about how the economy is doing so well” and claimed with just “a little bit deeper dive you’ll find that the economy is not doing well.”
Liberals demanding higher taxes on the rich is just another day in Washington, D.C., but those progressive voices have more in common than their politics of envy. Some of them also have the financial backing of liberal billionaire George Soros.
There is probably no better indicator that facts and the truth really don't matter to today's journalists than the fawning coverage disgraced former news anchor Dan Rather receives whenever he makes a post-CBS career move. CNN's story on Rather's latest foray into online broadcasting typifies the kid-glove treatment he has received since he was relieved of his anchor duties at CBS almost 13 years ago.
The Young Turks are so far left, even liberals call them “left-leaning,” and they’re on a quest to become the “largest news network period.”
“Left-leaning political video network The Young Turks has raised $20 million in its latest and biggest funding round,” The Huffington Post reported on Aug. 8. Variety also called the network left-wing.
