Storyline

The Young Turks, one of the most popular online news shows in the world, has amassed a YouTube network consisting of millions of subscribers and billions of views. But that wasn't always the case. MAD AS HELL documents the tumultuous, at times hilarious and altogether astonishing trajectory of Cenk Uygur, The Young Turks' main host and founder, as he traverses from unknown Public Access TV host to internet sensation by way of YouTube. When he ventures into national television by landing the 6 PM time slot on MSNBC, Cenk's uncensored brand of journalism is compromised as he becomes a thorn in the side of traditional news media; his unwavering dedication to speaking the truth puts him at the very nexus of the battle between new and old media, and makes MAD AS HELL not only entertaining, but incredibly timely as well.

The story of Cenk Uyger is the story of the American dream
11 February 2015 | by (Orlando, FL) – See all my reviews

I am only giving 9 instead of 10 because I feel I may be biased. As a fan of The Young Turks, there was no way I was not going to see this, but what surprised me was the storytelling. I'm big on storytelling, and Andrew Napier has weaved a specific tale with a moving narrative and more than enough scope to make it something you want to sink your teeth into. If you've never heard about TYT or Cenk Uyger (pronounced JENK EUGER), then this is a good introduction. Cenk had a desire to share his ideas and opinions, and he worked against steep odds to make it happen. He started in public access television as a conservative, opinionated personality, very green and rough but very real. Now The Young Turks, the network's flagship daily 2-hour news and politics show, is the largest online news show in the world, and Cenk is the voice of the progressive movement. If you like your news delivered in a teleprompter-free, off-the-cuff, 100% real way, then you should check them out on YouTube. The film takes you through the highs and lows of Cenk's career and the rest of the TYT crew, but more importantly it gives you an insight into the psyche of the man himself. Summed up, "Mad As Hell" is the story of the American dream.
