Cenk Ugyur And The Young Turks Beat Fox News In Ratings

Here Cenk Uygur gets the chance to crow a little bit about MSNBC actually beating Fox News in the ratings. Love it. The Young Turks is huge on Youtube and the show with Cenk and Ana Kasparian is a great source for non-biased reporting, unlike Fox News with their well-known right wing slant. Actually it's more of an overhang than a simple "slant".

Uygur has been a regular guest on The Dylan Ratigan Show on MSNBC and this past October the network announced he had been hired as a substitute anchor, which is what he was discussing with Ana in the clip above.

Apparently the ratings for a portion of the time Cenk was hosting the show bested Fox News which is hard to do at the best of times. It shows the viewers and listeners of The Young Turks are willing to come out in force to listen to a balanced reporting of the days news events and intelligent dialogue rather than hammering away at their ideological talking points and right-wing hobby horses as their competitors seem to do.

The Young Turks have a large audience that they have grown since about February 2002 and garner as many as 18 million views for their Youtube channel alone.
