    “You can’t trust the main stream media because they are bought out by corporations” – TYT since forever
    *Sells themselves out to corporations* LOL Ben was right! You are prostitutes!

      B J no he’s a hypocrite for backing Hillary, the candidate that stands for everything he was against. That’s like me saying I’m against racism but then backing a racist candidate. Yeah it’s very hypocritical.

      abscondam He literally said on day 1 that he was going to support the Democratic candidate in order to prevent a Republican presidency. Agree or disagree, he was perfectly clear.

    As a loyal viewer for quite awhile now, this rubs me the wrong way. $20 million is a lot of money. I don’t think you can expect your viewers to just believe that they aren’t going to want a return on their investment. Especially not when you’ve been telling your viewers not to trust this kind of thing.

      At some point they have to do this (selectively). They can inform people of status quo, but nothing changes on main street until like minded companies join to make the economy change as well.

      Hillary Clinton is a bought politician idiot. TYT is a business. If you don’t know the difference then something is wrong with you. One is supposed to take money and return it plus more from profits. The other is not.

    • Posted by Cassidy Ebersole, at Reply

      I understand that businesses get investors and that others have invested in TYT, but until now it wasn’t $20 million coming from someone who, to the best of my knowledge, supports establishment democrats. For all we know there could be an understanding that if they do what the investor wants, more money would come in the future. Yes Cenk said that that’s why they took it all at once, but that doesn’t really mean that scenario couldn’t happen. “Here is this $20 million, but there could be more in the future if you help push my agenda.” I hope that isn’t what’s going on, but for me it is a wait and see situation. Could Jeffrey Katzenberg have decided to start supporting the progressive movement, and just want a share of the profits from TYT, sure. Both scenarios are possible. I was simply pointing out that it does deserve a level of scrutiny, and that we should be attentive to see if they change their messaging.

    • Posted by Cole Knapek, at Reply

      Seriously though everyones acting like TYT could just one day say “oh lol yeah we support the establishment now” and they wouldnt lose the majority of their subscribers and paid members in a single day. LOL to that if you believe that you obviously dont understand who their main demographic is.

      I can say that about politicians. Sure, its only a donation, there is no legislative impact.

    • Posted by bgnore, at Reply

      Any investment would impact content. There is a reason why TYT is extremely selective in their reporting.

      If you think TYT is made “by the people”, you are sadly mistaken.

    • Posted by David Thompson, at Reply

      Every news outlet is selective in reporting. It’s called having an opinion. I didn’t realize having an opinion was inherently evil

    • Posted by bgnore, at Reply

      There is a difference between *_reporting facts_* and having an opinion.

      TYT does not report facts which they find inconvenient. Also, they will not share their opinion on topics which they find inconvenient.

      It’s much better to get your news outside of TYT. Because, what TYT does is google stories which suit their agenda, then regurgitate it back out to their audience.

    To all the negative comments. The truth hurts doesnt it.

    How could anyone be against?:
    – money out of politics
    – universal health care
    – raise minimum wage
    – affordable education

    If anyone isnt in favour of the above they are either:
    A. Millionaires
    B. Stupid

      Simplifying arguments there too mate. Going to college isn’t the same as people trying to own a house and start a family while living off debt. Families have become increasingly reliant in two parents as opposed to before where you could more easily have a family dependant on just the father. Tax breaks are a problem, that is the bottom line and they have made it harder for the middle and working class.

    • Posted by Kacper Lewis, at Reply

      Me going to college doesn’t change the fact that I’m still on minimum wage. If you have two adults who work full time that’s enough money to get a mortgage mate. Unless you live in new York, california or any other expensive state. Owning a house is not a right, if by some means you can’t afford one then just rent. Free market. And I’m not a republican 😅 Proud Democrat who wants to regain the whitehouse in 2020.

    • Posted by KarakuraNinja, at Reply

      People shouldn’t be renting, stop praising the free market like it is some perfect thing. There was a time where a monarchy could just seize anyones property, the reason we have a free market is so that corrupt governments couldn’t control people’s lives and assets and people could improve living standards. Over time people found new ways to abuse the free market system with tactics like hoarding and monopolies, there has even been money in politics, there are those breaking and rigging the system so that people get poorer as an expense to the wealthy. The government is meant to represent and support the common people, improve lives and bring fairness.

      The free market needs regulation and to address the issues that are causing inflation alongside stagnant wages, ignoring the problem and giving people bad alternatives as compromises while future generations are to expect worse is ridiculous.

      Money out of politics: Money in politics is nothing more than a symptom of a disease. That disease is the federal government having too much power that we cannot control. Limit the powers of the federal government, give more powers to the states, and create more checks and balances with that process. Also, if the federal government is so corrupt, why do you want it to run your education and healthcare?

      Universal health care: This is simply not possible due to our lack of doctors, nurses, surgeons, researchers, etc. If you want more healthcare for people then push for more people to become doctors and nurses. Do not reward failure by increasing the min. wage. People want high quality healthcare to as many people as possible. Understanding reality does not make one stupid.

      Raise the min. wage: This has never benefited anyone

      Affordable education: People support this, but we also have to keep the quality high. Placing 500+ students in one room and placing a warm body in front of them to lecture things straight out of a textbook is not an education. But that is what you leftists are pushing for.

      The big issue, though, is that you are strawmanning. You feel that if we do not support your stance then we are against education and healthcare and hate poor people. That is simply not true. The reality is that we understand that you just can’t magically creating these things out of thin air. We have a waiting list for organs for example. Does is that because they are just sitting there in the freezer and the government just needs a law to distribute them? Or maybe we just lack them? Which is it?

      The definition I read of Communism is when the GOVERNMENT controls all the wealth of the people, businesses, education, and are socialists in a sense except that GOVERNMENT DICTATES.Examples are like the schools teaching COMMON CORE type of education, instead of actually educating these young people, OBAMACARE WITH THE FORCE MANDATE that is definitely something they would do in a communist nation.The PATRIOT ACT, there are so many provisions were the government dictates to businesses, banks and people, definitely communism.Myself as an Individual have way less freedom than I did as a young man, and I found both of the main political parties to be guilty of these things.

      Side note: top online political show on the internet? Really? By what metric? Cenk’s famous metric of 10, where the only score is 10.

      In that case I’m the most interesting man in the world! That’s objective truth. Keep the dilutions alive. Yay! Too Strong!

    • Posted by pizzamanwannabe, at Reply

      Conscious — money only corruptions politicians. Why? Politicians have to fight for their job every 2 years. Businesses don’t — Cenk existed without this money for 15 years, if the funder pulls donations he’ll still have a job. If Cenk was a politician and got this money then he’d have to do what the donor wants or they’d pull money from his 2018 election and fund his competitor

    • Posted by Conscious Caracal, at Reply

      +pizzamanwannabe If that were true, why do corporate media networks like FOX and CNN dance to the tune of their financiers? Even TYT have called them out on this. The more TYT gets backed by big money, the more they will become like the corporate networks they despise.

    • Posted by pizzamanwannabe, at Reply

      Conscious — I don’t think you understand what corruption is… so here’s merrian-webster’s definition: “dishonest or illegal behavior especially by powerful people (such as government officials or police officers).”

      CNN dances to the tune of their financiers but who does that really hurt? No one. Nancy Pelosi dances to the tune of her financiers and who does that hurt? Literally everyone, because she creates the goddamn law and controls the police. You seriously don’t see the difference between a news org and the US Congress? >.>

    • Posted by Conscious Caracal, at Reply

      +pizzamanwannabe Might wanna read my comment again, mate. Reading comprehension is KEY.
      Since you like definitions, “corrupt” (verb): ’cause to act dishonestly in return for money or personal gain.’

      No matter the amount of people getting hurt, it’s about principles, ethics and journalistic integrity.

      Bribing politicians with any large amount of corporate donation to
      serve their best interest of corporation to getting richer but not for the
      people of united state was at one time illegal and can only give small
      donation to candidate until your corrupted government pass the bill to
      allow this criminal act to take place. If our British government and
      pretty sure the rest of Europe countries as well could get away with
      this kind of illegal bribery in politics there would be people outrage on

    I like you for the most part, TYT, but you’re not _just_ a company, you’re a _media_ company, and if you’re gonna preach “money out of politics,” a consistent approach would be to embrace “money out of media” as well — grassroots funded. Your credibility is indeed in question.

    • Posted by adrian, at Reply

      +thermo dynamics – Yeah I agree, but that’s how it starts man; and it’s reminiscing of the argument corporate democrats use against getting money out of politics. They’re not isolated entities — politics and media — they both operate similarly, and are both vulnerable to corruption in the same ways. It’s a slippery slope, and credibility is likely to be the first to suffer. It’s a shame.

    • Posted by Israel Rosario Jr., at Reply

      adrian, what you’re proposing is completely and utterly unrealistic. What Cenk is saying here, which I agree with, is that they’re using their money to SERVE THEIR LISTENERS not the political interests of their investors or corporations buying ad space. We live in a capitalist system so we all have to play by those rules on some level, but it doesn’t mean you compromise your principles.

    • Posted by adrian, at Reply

      Quasiguambo – Do what I did, pay $14/mo to remove ads and revenue moves directly from the platform to the creator. I also use Patron and pay a whopping $4/mo to support Secular Talk and Jimmy Dore, since I watch them more often.

    • Posted by adrian, at Reply

      +Israel Rosario Jr. – Grassroots funding _is_ a principle to uphold. _Democracy Now_, for example, is a nonprofit organization that has been doing this for over 20 years. It’s not new, unrealistic, or impossible. It’s just not TYT.

    • Posted by Israel Rosario Jr., at Reply

      adrian, I’m not sure why you believe that it’s a binary choice between grassroots funding and taking money from an investor who believes in your organizational vision. PBS and NPR both accept grassroots funding and funding from corporate foundations. The key here is whether they stay true to their mission to serve their listeners, which I don’t see a reason why they won’t.

  17. Posted by Khorne Berzerker, at Reply

    Cenk, how’s it feel to be a 20 million dollar prostitute, you lying hack? You claim that you want money out of politics? You are the embodiment of money in politics. You’re nothing but a shill for the left, who will dance like a puppet to the tune of whoever’s paying.

    Not that you had much credibility before, but congratulations. Now you have none. Not that someone who denies the Armenian Genocide has any in the first place.

      “left wing” and “right wing” come from France during the abolishment of the kingship. People who wanted a new system sat on the left, those who wanted to keep the king sat on the right.

      “right” essentially means status quo, which is what both political parties in the USA are.

      So there literally is no left wing in our political system, and that’s the problem.
