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 Future of News Media Is Here
12 February 2015 | by houckolaSee all my reviews

If you want to see what the future of news media is, watch this movie. What brings people to watch a program like The Young Turks it is because they sense that they are being lied to and that the current media is doing them a disservice. A lot of people may not agree with Cenk, but you have to admire how genuine he is. There is no deceit or hidden agenda. He tells you what he wants up front, and he tells you how the establishment is screwing you over. This movie does a great job of examining the strange career of this man and the windy road he took. Liberal or conservative, take the time to watch this movie. It is so worth it.
