Unbalanced, undisciplined, lacking in decorum, and very self-righteous
30 July 2015 | by (New South Wales, Australia) – See all my reviews

Like most online news shows, TYT attempts to break away from the big corporate media and establish itself as a truth-speaking show. Since TYT is has a small budget, it must rely on a charm of in-your-face news presentation, and a strong liberal/progressive agenda to attract attention. This may be very enticing and refreshing at first, but for someone like me who enjoys professional and impartial presentation, this isn't the show for me.

The hosts - Cenk - in particular, is not afraid to voice his views whether or not they are politically correct relative to the general liberal crowd. This is where credit should be given when it's due, a show that has the gall to go against the views of its audience. However, the hosts on this show virtually attack everyone who is not a democrat or who do not fall in line with their views. And when I say attack, I really do mean it. The hosts will use name calling with a level of smugness that is normally associated with Fox News.

Don't be fooled if TYT calls themselves unbiased. They are very biased. So far, I have yet to see anything presented in an impartial light. In fact, there have been multiple occasions where the hosts cherry pick scientific and statistical facts to support their views, while omitting anything that might point towards the contrary. The heated arguments between hosts, because most of the time the hosts and guests hosts seem to have a unanimous decision on everything that it all just becomes amicable heated rants. That being said, whenever Ben Mankiewicz is hosting, that is a breath of fresh air as he does challenge the views of Cenk or Anna, which does get some nice discussions going at the same time, tempering out the very "passionate" hosts.

Overall, as an Australian, this show does give new insights into the far away land of freedom known as America, but honestly if you want to find a source of impartial or scientifically accurate news without doing your own research, I recommend DNews, SeekerDaily and TestTube. Though those three shows don't really tackle political issues anywhere near on the scale of TYT, at least you won't feel like you're being beaten over the head with a paddle named "liberal/progressive agendas".

If you are looking for a news source that is "unbiased", better to go for the big news corporations that omit information as opposed to broadcasting their stances, and watch multiple sources and formulate your own opinions from there. After all, political correctness is only relative.
