What do you folks think of the Young Turks (Why I'm Mad at Obama)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjRKc00_4yM
-Why I'm mad at obama
Pretty good, but they still don't give the whole story, not a word about the "where is assange" movment

plus cenk was for clinton and the second she loses the whole team just goes off on her, literally screaming about why she was such a terrible candidate.

So what else is out there for a progressive, who should I be listening to?

Re: What do you folks think of the Young Turks (Why I'm Mad at Obama)

They made some lame video or something. Don't remember if it was dishonest or if I just disagreed with it.
I don't think many of us are 'progressive', though we're sort of all over the place politically. ancaps to commies. Still, whatever political whatever you are, it should be good to have various sources rather than be stuck in a bubble, as evidenced by the whole unexpected Trump freakout and whatnot. If only I was less lazy to care, but still, there are so many other things to care about...

IIRC it was a somewhat half-hearted endorsement of Hillary. They used to obsess over Bernie, but as a video uploaded by Pierre Tru-dank on YouTube pointed out, they don't know shit about socialism, and neither did the person who called them to say some nonsensical shit like "communism leads to Marxism".

American politics is funny.

I liked the dynamic between some members of the panel, but there was this one woman whose behaviour was incredibly irritating.

Re: What do you folks think of the Young Turks (Why I'm Mad at Obama)

Worst "news" "channel" on the internet. The dictionary example of bad liberals. Biased as fuck, pandering as fuck, hosts have narcissistic tendencies and whine about the stupidest shit possible, while being equally (and usually hypocritically) offensive in other ways. Generally clueless and overly dramatic. Also make a ridiculous amount of videos a day because they can, though 99% of it is garbage and no better than what you get on CNN or MSNBC, actually worse than those, somehow.


There are no clear way to learn it unlike html and css who are actually funny to learn and explore.

Eh sometimes entertaining, but mostly not very relevant.

They aren't just liberals though, they're the best type of liberals. The type to name themselves after an extreme nationalist militant group and insist they were progressive and then also deny the Armenian genocide.
