Young Turks: Cenk takes the DC dems & mainstream media on a much-needed trip to the woodshed! “This whole town is corrupt. This whole town is toxic.”
[Editor’s Note: Watch how the National Press Club president just can’t take it! — Mark L. Taylor]
Cenk Uygur, host of “The Young Turks,” joined the National Press Club for a discussion on the role of digital media in the progressive movement. He spoke about the differences between legacy media and digital media, which he said was more honest, effective and relatable due to its populist roots. Mr. Uygur talked about the 2018 midterm elections, predicting Democrats would see major gains in the House of Representatives. He also spoke about the 2020 presidential election and how he thinks there will be a “civil war” within the Democratic Party between progressive and establishment candidates.
