Partners Project: Shira Lazar Interviews Cenk Uygur Of The Young Turks

One of the channels that I have been following recently is the Partners Project with Shira Lazar. She interviews some of the top Youtube Partners and gets some of their back stories and how they became top performers of the Youtube and online community.

In this recent video, Shira talks with Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks which is the biggest online news program in the world. I am personally subscribed to The Young Turks who cover everything from politics to sports to the latest in the entertainment world. Their political news is the channel's bread and butter, told with a refreshing honesty. They will not shy away from pointing out the hypocrisy and downright lies that those in the world of politics will try to foist upon an unsuspecting public. But they also are willing to discuss the funny and absurd stories that bubble up on the Internet.

You can follow both the Partners Project and The Young Turks on Youtube by subscribing at the links above. You can also follow The Young Turks elsewhere on the Internet:

Cenk Gives Some Youtube Protips

Here's a second video where Cenk discusses how to be successful on Youtube. There's some good advice in this clip:

I liked that in this video Cenk gives some great advice for those trying to make Youtube partner. "Just do it" is his basic message. It doesn't matter where you start as long as you make that start. Look at the old (almost archival lol) footage in the video and you can see Cenk sitting at a table just speaking into a microphone when he started TYT.

ProTip From Cenk: Don't try to make things perfect, just start and improve as you go along.

They are now a massive online presence getting over 18 million views every month. Do you think Cenk thought they would be where they are today when they started broadcasting? He probably hoped it would turn out like this, but like anyone just starting out there are doubts. Each month TheYoungTurks just keeps getting stronger and stronger. Make the start and continue bringing your enthusiasm every day for each video you post and eventually you will find a level of success.

If you want to see Cenk in action, here's a clip from when he was on MSNBC discussing the Egyptian situation.

You can see Cenk Uygur on MSNBC weekdays at 6pm Eastern, 3pm Pacific.
