A fine source of news edutainment
4 March 2016 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

I would like to dispel the notion that The Young Turks makes any claim to objectivity - they routinely explain personal biases to their viewers. Some may find appeal in this expedient humanistic agenda as each episode has the feel of a network news anchor "gone rogue." Others may not like this presentation of the news in such a subjective manner, but they should consider that all news reports function with some sort of filter.

Cenk Uygur, the main host, is incredibly passionate about politics and provides the backbone to the whole enterprise. The general direction of this and other "alternative news" programs is to break the spell of mainstream media which too often presents arguments with false objectivity and in the process lends its influence and exposure and also level of credence to viewpoints which are not remotely credible or rooted in reality.

The format for The Young Turks resembles a typical nightly news program packaged into several segments about current events which are circulated individually on YouTube and elsewhere. I have enjoyed and will continue to enjoy news from a variety of sources, but I find myself agreeing with the main anchors on the Young Turks so often that tuning in to TYT is like putting on a pair of comfy socks. Other reviewers have complained that the Young Turks merely serves as an echo chamber for liberal thinkers, whether this is a flaw or a feature likely depends on the viewer's own prerogative.
