A fantastic look at what can happen with persistence and a clear vision
I’ve been watching The Young Turks for a couple of years now, and I what I admire the most is their honesty when it comes to speaking truth to power. Progressive politics is something I am entirely behind and TYT provides that in spades. What I wasn’t aware of, partially given my newness to this YouTube phenomenon, is how it all started. I believe that is the most valuable part of this documentary. It shows what a fired-up young man with ambitious vision can achieve their goals through tenacity and sticking to first principles. I also wasn’t aware that Cenk started as a Republican. Just saying that sounds really odd, but people can (and should) change their political stance when presented with new information. That is the other most valuable thing to take away from this film: that change can be a positive thing. It’s this same idea that fuels their efforts with Wolf-Pac. Money has corrupted our political system and I think it’s very courageous of TYT to start and promote such a worthy cause. For those thinking that this is just some plug for their show or a fluff piece to promote Cenk Uygur, I will say that you are wrong. Among the many interviewees, few are sparing in their assessment of him as a person. They aren’t necessarily mean, but they don’t back down when it comes to his overall personality. And of course, it helps to be loud and abrasive when your message is one of outrage at the status quo. Bottom line, whether you’re liberal or conservative, you should give this a watch and hopefully be inspired in the process.
Honest as every documentary should be
Pretty solid documentary. I’d give it a 10 if not for two things that are missing and i consider important: First, Jimmy Dore’s take was much needed. Even though he wasn’t there from the beginning i’m pretty sure he’d have interesting things to say. Last, they should have addressed that episode when Ana Kasparian answered fans’ complaints about the show giving more air time to celebrities stories than to serious issues.Some gems on that speech. It’s been a while i’ve not been following Young Turks but i felt reconnected with the show after this doc. Even if you’ve never heard of Young Turks you’ll be moved by the courageous struggle of Cenk and his team of idealistic employees trying to make anti-establishment journalism in a media driven only by big money.
