Former MSNBC Host Cenk Uygur Blames Christianity for the Holocaust

November 14th, 2017 11:02 AM
Former MSNBC host Cenk Uygur, co-founder of the ultra-left YouTube show “Young Turks,” launched into an attack on Muslim Reform Movement leader Zuhdi Jasser at the left-leaning Web summit in Lisbon, Portugal last week, blaming Christianity for the Holocaust. "Christianity was monstrous just 70 years ago, way worse than Islam has ever been!"

Actor Russell Brand Bizarrely Proclaims: MSNBC is 'Extremely Conservat

August 20th, 2014 1:01 PM
On Tuesday, former MSNBC host Cenk Uygur uttered some of the wackiest media analysis you’ll ever hear when, on his Youtube show, he declared: “In American media conservatives dominated almost exclusively before Keith Olbermann turned MSNBC a more progressive direction.” But then actor Russell Brand, determined not to be upstaged by The Young Turks host, upped the crazy ante as he proclaimed…

Ed Asner: Sean Hannity's 'Behind On His Rabies Shots

December 11th, 2012 11:01 AM
NewsBusters reported last week that Fox News's Sean Hannity had come down on actor Ed Asner for his participation in an animated video depicting a rich person urinating on regular Americans. Asner struck back Monday on Current TV's Young Turks saying, "I think he's behind on his rabies shots" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Media's Heavy-Handed Liberals Race to Exploit Hurricane Tragedy

October 30th, 2012 4:02 PM
Like ambulance-chasing lawyers, the heavy-handed liberal activists who populate much of the media raced to exploit Hurricane Sandy even as the storm was lashing the East Coast last night, citing it as proof of “climate change” and a reason to oppose Mitt Romney. Yesterday afternoon, MSNBC’s Martin Bashir started a panel discussion by claiming that “people are wondering today if the current…

Star Wars's Mark Hamill: Obama Is Obi-Wan Kenobi

October 11th, 2012 10:51 AM
After Barack Obama's absolutely horrible performance in last week's presidential debate, would you compare him to the famed "Star Wars" character Obi-Wan Kenobi? Luke Skywalker aka Mark Hamill actually did on Current's Young Turks Wednesday (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Al Gore, Proud? Current TV Promotes Uygur Calling O'Reilly a 'G--damn

April 19th, 2012 2:26 PM
Both TV Newser and TV Week have picked up on Al Gore-led Current TV’s campaign to “distinguish” itself in cable talk by promoting a clip of Cenk Uygur, the MSNBC-refugee host of “The Young Turks,” attacking  Bill O’Reilly on Tuesday night as a “g–damn Nazi.” This might match the Current motto of “Politically Direct,” but it’s not correct. “All right, before I go to my panel, let me just…

YouTube? More Like LibTube

November 2nd, 2011 10:58 AM
You Tube is launching a series of nearly 100 new channels. The set of new channels is laden with liberal voices and controversial material, and is practically devoid of conservative and Christian voices. Liberal-leaning channels include offerings from sources such as Slate, The Chopra Well (with Deepak Chopra, a New Age guru and Huffington Post contributor), and Take Part TV (makers of Al…

Al Sharpton Officially Given His Own MSNBC Program - 'PoliticsNation

August 23rd, 2011 6:16 PM
Since Al Sharpton took over for Cenk Uygur in MSNBC's 6:00 time slot last month, he's been derided and ridiculed as a laughing stock totally unqualified to host a cable news program. Ironically, that makes him a perfect fit at this farce of a news outlet, and on Tuesday, the folks at MSNBC rewarded his incompetence by officially giving him his own show (press release via TV By The Numbers):

Sharpton Pushed for Comcast/NBC Merger - And Now Is In Line for Own Sh

August 1st, 2011 8:46 AM
Remember how Al Sharpton was among the first black leaders to speak out in favor of Comcast's acquisition of NBC Universal? My recollection of this was vague at best, tending as I do to dismiss nearly everything coming from Sharpton as insignificant, predictable or clownish. Then after FCC approval of the merger back in January, Sharpton began appearing more often as a guest on MSNBC, a…

Al Sharpton Rendered Inane During Tussle with GOP Congressman

July 26th, 2011 4:41 PM
Granted, you may not have noticed any difference. The Rev. Al Sharpton did his part for Republicans last night by arguing with one of them. Sharpton, heir apparent to the 6-7 p.m. slot on MSNBC, tried to get the better of Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., and ran into the immovable object of a smarter opponent. Here's how their exchange ended, with Sharpton criticizing Mulvaney for opposing…

Uygur: Sharpton May Have Gotten MSNBC Show Because He Won't Criticize

July 24th, 2011 8:21 PM
When CBS's "60 Minutes" did a puff piece about Al Sharpton in May, Lesley Stahl revealed the Reverend refuses to say anything bad about President Obama. On Sunday's "Reliable Sources," former MSNBC contributor Cenk Uygur claimed he might have been replaced by Sharpton in the 6PM time slot because of the Reverend's undying devotion to the current White House resident (video follows with…

Al Sharpton to Join MSNBC As a Host; He's a Perfect Fit for Network

July 21st, 2011 12:11 PM
Update: Our good friend Brian Maloney at Radio Equalizer was ahead of the curve with a post on July 14 about signals that Sharpton was joining MSNBC. When MSNBC shuffled Ed Schultz up to the 10 p.m. slot they placed left-wing blogger and radio host Cenk Uygur (pronounced jenk you-gur) in the 6 p.m. Eastern time slot that Ed vacated as an interim host. But Uygur has been curiously absent…

Yo, Cenk: If Ryan's 26% Unfavorable Rating 'Disastrous,' What's Pelosi

June 23rd, 2011 8:58 PM
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? -- Matthew 7:4 On a somewhat slow Thursday night, let's have a good chuckle.  On his MSNBC show this evening, Cenk Uygur jumped on a poll showing Paul Ryan with a 26% unfavorability rating to declare that America "can't stand" the Wisconsin congressman and that the 26%…

Cenk Uygur: 'Republican Vision Of Jesus--Tell Poor And Needy To Pound

June 14th, 2011 10:07 PM
I'm going to sit back and let our readers run with this one.  On his MSNBC show tonight, Cenk Uygur said that "the Republican vision of Jesus" is "to tell the poor and needy to pound sand." Uygur offered his twisted theological take in commenting on a GOP proposal to trim allocations to a certain welfare program. View video after the jump.
