Cenk Uygur Continues to triumph after leaving MSNBC
The growth in popularity of Cenk Uygur's The Young Turks has happened because in the United States there are very few media outlets that give their audience real news. At this moment in Haiti, there is widespread opposition to the inept US puppet Martelly, to the extent that it has become an embarrassment for the United States, yet no major network will dare touch it. Another item that should be covered is the sudden murders of 48 college students in Guerrero, a Mexican province believed to have large quantities of oil. The few instances where it is mentioned on mainstream media the drug cartels are always portrayed as the likely culprits, but many people from the area say the drugs cartels are working with the government and that there may even be clandestine US government assistance similar to the massacres that took place in Central America during the Reagan era.
It is painfully obvious that Fox, so-called news has no objectivity whatsoever it may as well be called GOP-TV, but the other networks are really not that much better in terms of reporting actual news. CNN has intentions of changing format to half news - half reality show. When Cenk Uygur was unceremoniously dumped by MSNBC he has excellent ratings, in fact his was among the best at that time. He was fired because he told the truth about the number of issues instead of saying what our government wanted him to say. Revenge can at times be sweet because Uygur today has more viewers than his MSNBC counterparts. His ratings are soaring simply because he is giving the US audience an alternative and its appreciated.
