    so your hiring a white guy pretending to be a black guy? that’s not very
    progressive of you genk. you could even go as far as to say a little bit
    racist?

      Nice, just keep on judging him from the outside, rather than learning who
      he is and what he does. How cuckish of you.

    • Posted by Damn, what a shame, at Reply

      +Crimson King I don’t think you know what cuck means :^)
      +tab0108 wrong. I am merely insisting that gunk is systematically
      destroying black identity, By hiring YET ANOTHER white man.
      This is what true racism looks like.

    omg!!! you got Shaun King and Nomiki?? way to go!!! great job!!! I love TYT
    even more!!! excited about the new additions and the movement!!! all the
    complaining in the comment section is ridiculous. why do you watch the
    channel??? unsubscribe. anyway, thank you Cenk!

    • Posted by the500mphtortoise, at Reply

      Why do people watch Birdemic or sharknado? Because its fun to watch cringe
      inducingly bad media.

    • Posted by playgrrrr, at Reply

      +MZ BOOMBOSTIC You realize that none of these people watch anything, right?
      They just come here based on video title and thumbnail, comment, dislike,
      push TYT higher in the ratings through both, and then leave.

    • Posted by MZ BOOMBOSTIC (MZBOOMBOSTIC), at Reply

      playgrrr oh well then continue, I just won’t read the comments anymore and
      turn the notifications off for mine. they are usually mean and racist
      remarks to comments anyway.

    • Posted by playgrrrr, at Reply

      +MZ BOOMBOSTIC Nah, feel free to participate in the discussion and comment
      anyways. Just be mindful of who you are responding to. If you keep
      responding to troll comments, their comment threads get bumped and remain
      visible and can garner more upvotes. Through that and by trying to
      discourage actual discussion, they control the narrative. The goal for them
      is to keep enough of us from coming here that they can drown us out. Not
      unlike poisoning the well, it’s the oldest trick in the book.
      And you can tell they never watch anything because videos with Trump in the
      title are frequently disliked even when they side with Trump against the
      establishment. It couldn’t be more obvious.

    Shaun King is completely biased, not objective at all. Should fit right
    along with Cenk and Ana ….

    *I like both Nomiki Konst and Shaun King in general, but those picks are
    less progressive than possible, and, more importantly, are rather activists
    than journalists: they do not adhere to the principles of journalism,
    engaging in red baiting*:
    1. Shaun King on his Twitter account spreads Democrats’ conspiracy theories
    on how people who do not agree with them are Putin’s agents, as well as
    this whole “Russian government has hacked the DNC/Podesta” claim that has
    literally zero evidence behind it (and Obama confirmed that nothing will be
    released on the matter). This is a post-truth, post-factual propaganda that
    goes against the principles of journalism. Sadly, Shaun does not show
    scepticism towards government’s claims which should be a must for a real
    professional journalist (versus just an activist, where it can be
    forgiveable).

    2. Nomiki Konst’s twitter feed: she was retweeting videos of T-Rex oil guy
    receiving Order of friendship from Putin as if it is an incriminating
    evidence (dozens of Americans were awarded with the same Order, among
    countless more people from other countries, as well as from Russia itself;
    are they all Putin’s spies now?) and neocon maniac Lindsay Graham’s
    insanity on how Russia wants to destroy democracy all around the world, as
    well as pro “regime change”/StateDep propaganda on Syria. Zero scepticism
    about the claims by the government, too (again: this is not allowed for a
    journalist versus just an activist, where it can be forgiveable).

    This development moves TYT away from being both a truly progressive outlet
    as well as journalistic entity. You can see the difference between
    organizations that are co-run/co-created by professional journalists like
    The Intercept, IBTimes, AlterNet, Fair where scepticism towards government
    is a must in most cases, where the watchdog mentality rules, and TYT, where
    such scepticism and watchdog mentality are inconsistent, not principal,
    only work when it is fits to a narrative. The reason for that is that Cenk
    himself is not a journalist, but a commentator-activist, he does not have
    the journalistic mentality, discipline and rigour in fact-checking, in
    separation of facts and speculations.

    And, as always, I am not suggesting that Cenk intentionally wants things to
    be this way: this is just how his mind works, he is not Glenn Greenwald.
    Thus so far TYT has only one true journalist in terms of professionalism:
    Jordan Chariton. He is close in ability to own critical thinking to
    professionals at The Intercept, it is still great that TYT has him.

    • Posted by Anthony Interiano, at Reply

      Stranger Happened You do realize Jordan and Emma are themselves activists
      who are more concerned with being reporters upon bring hired, yes? It’s
      pretty easy to be a journalist challenging authority when Trump is the
      establishment or when we get Standing Rocks or Flints all over the place.

      You’re overreacting.

    • Posted by Stranger “Things Have” Happened, at Reply

      Every true journalist is also an activist (for example, for transparency,
      freedom of speech, so on), including Jordan, but it should not be vise
      versa. The key quality of real journalist versus commentator-activist is
      scepticism.
      And we should care about journalism since Cenk says he wants to hire
      journalists. But, as showed, the two that were hired have activist, rather
      than journalist mentality. They do not mean anything bad, but in result
      they participate in pretty horrible practices. It is the same as what has
      happened in the middle of 2000s when journalists uncritically repeated the
      claims that Saddam Hussein had WMDs and was tied to Al-Qaeda, never
      interested in the fact that there is no evidence of that and that the claim
      actually contradicts to what is known otherwise. *I am sure most of those
      journalists did not mean harm, but the result was horrible.*
      As to Cenk, I only explained the fact that he is not a journalist to show
      why he could not differentiate between journalists and activists himself,
      hence chose the two that he has hired. I am not demanding that he himself
      would magically reformat his mentality to install scepticism in the
      government’s claims, but, theoretically, he could become aware of the
      importance of scepticism for journalists and choose journalists to hire
      with the use of such criteria. *Scepticism is the key quality for a
      journalist to have so he/she would not become, even unwittingly, a
      propaganda tool for the most reactionary, hacky, fear/war mongering,
      incendiary PR from the government as the current red scare case, for
      example.

      Stranger Happened You have an excellent point.

    • Posted by Cath' J J, at Reply

      SH et al. If you want this to be read by the powers that be, and I think
      it’s the kind of stuff a true friend would share, put it on Facebook or
      somewhere they actually look at the comments. Apparently they no longer do
      here on Youtube. At any rate, I appreciate hearing your analysis and
      obvious journalistic knowhow. I’m wondering if there are many ‘real’
      journalist candidates available these days? Jordan mentioned once that he
      has no journalistic training. Maybe that’s what kept him ‘pure’ (besides
      that he just must be a natural).

    That is all

      You guys know that his biological father was a black guy? Only because his
      step-dad was white doesn’t mean that Shaun King is white.

    • Posted by TradingKid1998, at Reply

      the reason why Alt-Right cucks hate Shaun King, is because he uncovers
      their racism from 10miles afar. lol. 2017 is going to be bad for these
      cucks.

    • Posted by Sydplayson, at Reply

      Tradingkid, he’s smart, huh? Maybe that’s cause he stole a scholarship a
      poc should have had by lying. You’re the hypocrite cuck, shame someone for
      cultural appropriation then embrace this person that stole a chance from
      some underprivileged minority. None of you pc cucks have justified that.
