Cenk’s latest unmask of Obama’s treachery, especially his contempt for “progressives.” The documentation by now is overwhelming. It simply pours out of this man. What a terrific choice for the vultures that are killing this world.

Hardly surprising that MSNBC—by self admission a proud member of the establishment—would find Uygur’s programs too much to take, considering his propensity to let the truth speak for itself.
In his exit from MSNBC, Cenk Uygur is not going quietly. In a teleconference call with reporters, Uygur reiterated his assertion that he was denied a permanent show in the 6 PM slot he has occupied on the the cable news channel since January because he was too challenging to government officials. (In last night’s episode of his own, internet-based program, “The Young Turks,” Uygur broadsided the network for its timidity at speaking truth to power; video below.)
In lieu of a weeknight hosting gig, MSNBC offered Uygur what he says was a lucrative contract for a weekend show plus punditry on the channel’s week-night programs — a deal he turned down. Uygur, who also hosts the Web-based video program, “The Young Turks,” says he walked away from MSNBC because he felt it more important to be able to be truthful with his audience. Network executives, he said, had asked him to tone down his aggressive interviewing style.

Frances Fitzgerald titled her 2000 book on Reagan’s Star Wars Strategic Defense Initiative, “Way Out There in the Blue,” leaving unsaid but letting readers conclude that America during his tenure was run by right wing extremists.
He and most others around him were ideologically hard right, their legacy including:
– disdain for working Americans;
– contempt for the rule of law, civil liberties, human rights, and democratic freedoms; and
– support for concentrated wealth, power and budget-busting militarism.
