Author Slams Fox News on Fox News
 
02:14
"Despite warning a producer beforehand, Foreign Policy blogger Tom Ricks went on Fox News and called out network for its coverage of the September 11 attacks in Benghazi. The controversy was "hyped — by this network especially," Ricks said, before being booted off the air. And that was him being nice. The Fox anchor, who suggested there might be a "White House coverup" of some sort, asked Ricks whether the deaths of four Americans was really hype. Ricks responded with a little quiz. Ricks: How many security contractors died in Iraq do you know? Anchor: I don't. Ricks: No, nobody does, because nobody cared. We know that several hundred died but there was never an official count done. SO when i see this focus on what was aessentially a small firefight -- one, I've covered firefights a lot of firefights -- it's impossible to figure out what happened in them sometimes. And second, I think that the empahsis on Benghazi has been extremely political, partly because Fox was operating as a wing of the Republican Party."* Pulitzer-winning author Tom Ricks was brought on to Fox News to discuss Susan Rice and Benghazi. Ricks gave his honest opinion to John Scott on how Fox News overhyped the event and was quickly ushered off-air; Cenk Uygur breaks down the Fox FAIL. *Read more from Elspeth Reeve/ The Atlantic Wire: http://www.theatlanticwire.com/politics/2012/11/tom-ricks-fox-tells-fox-it-hyped-benghazi-attack/59314/ Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Support The Young Turks by Shopping http://bit.ly/XhuNqO Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Final Debate: Pundits Cry After Romney's Flop
 
05:22
"Mitt Romney tried to appear last night as if he and President Obama were not much different on foreign policy matters. As with almost anything about Mitt Romney, nothing could be further from the truth. Even more than the economy, war and peace is the most critical issue any country faces. Mitt Romney and President Obama have widely divergent views on war and peace. Obama's is thoughtful, nuanced and sees war as a last resort, and only then in concert with key allies unless the U.S. or a very close ally is directly attacked or is faced with a very high likelihood of being attacked. Witness, for example, how the president skillfully managed to protect Libyan civilians from a bloodbath, employing the tools of supportive military power, engaging the Arab league and our allies, and not costing the life of a single American to oust Gaddafi. Romney really does not have any views of his own. He has absolutely zero experience, and, it appears, zero knowledge of the world. Thus far, his only foreign policy achievement has been to unite all of Britain's political parties, including the Conservatives, around one belief -- for President Obama's re-election."* Cenk Uygur breaks down what conservative pundits said about Romney's "kidgloves" and whether or not anyone could admit that Obama had won (hint: no). *Read more from: Paul Abrams/Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/paul-abrams/romney-lost-debate-badly_b_2007363.html Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Support The Young Turks by Shopping http://bit.ly/XhuNqO Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Sadly Not From The Onion - Texas GOP Against Thinking & Voting Rights
 
04:24
"It seems more like a headline from the satirical newspaper The Onion, but the Republican Party of Texas recently published its party platform, a report that - among other things - calls for a ban on teaching critical thinking skills in Texas schools because of its "focus on behavior modification" that has "the purpose of challenging the student's fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority."

Hilarious Christian Right Contraception Video

"A bizarre new video linking women's use of birth control pills and other chemical contraceptives to an "increase" in homosexual activity among men is making the blogosphere rounds. Produced by a group of Roman Catholic nuns calling themselves the Children of Mary order, "You Deserve to Know the Truth: Contraception" pairs some puzzling statistics with generic clip art.

What Happened When Portugal Decriminalized Drugs?
 
03:00
"The government in Portugal has no plans to back down. Although the Netherlands is the European country most associated with liberal drug laws, it has already been ten years since Portugal became the first European nation to take the brave step of decriminalizing possession of all drugs within its borders—from marijuana to heroin, and everything in between. This controversial move went into effect in June of 2001, in response to the country's spiraling HIV/AIDS statistics. While many critics in the poor and largely conservative country attacked the sea change in drug policy, fearing it would lead to drug tourism while simultaneously worsening the country's already shockingly high rate of hard drug use, a report published in 2009 by the Cato Institute tells a different story. Glenn Greenwald, the attorney and author who conducted the research, told Time: "Judging by every metric, drug decriminalization in Portugal has been a resounding success. It has enabled the Portuguese government to manage and control the drug problem far better than virtually every other Western country."

Dick Morris Cashed in on Bogus Election Predictions
 
02:39
"While the 2012 election may have severely damaged Dick Morris' credibility as a pundit, leading to his temporary benching at Fox News, it appears to have been good for his wallet. The Fox News contributor and columnist at The Hill aggressively fundraised for a super PAC he advised, which then apparently funneled money back to Morris through rentals of his email list. According to FEC data released December 6, Morris' Super PAC for America paid conservative news outlet Newsmax Media roughly $1.7 million for "fundraising" in October and November. A significant portion of the super PAC's money likely went to renting Morris' own email list, which is operated by Newsmax Media."* Did Dick Morris con the Cons? It turns out he made a huge amount of money from Newsmax Media for sending out newsletters pumped full of baseless assurances Mitt Romney and conservatives would sweep the elections. Cenk Uygur breaks it down. *Read more from Media Matters for America: http://mediamatters.org/blog/2012/12/07/the-dick-morrisnewsmax-super-pac-boondoggle/191740 Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Support The Young Turks by Shopping http://bit.ly/XhuNqO Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Fox News to Petraeus: Can We Run Your Campaign for President?
 
10:27
"So in spring 2011, Ailes asked a Fox News analyst headed to Afghanistan to pass on his thoughts to Petraeus, who was then the commander of U.S. and coalition forces there. Petraeus, Ailes advised, should turn down an expected offer from President Obama to become CIA director and accept nothing less than the chairmanship of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the top military post. If Obama did not offer the Joint Chiefs post, Petraeus should resign from the military and run for president, Ailes suggested. The Fox News chairman's message was delivered to Petraeus by Kathleen T. McFarland, a Fox News national security analyst and former national security and Pentagon aide in three Republican administrations. She did so at the end of a 90-minute, unfiltered conversation with Petraeus that touched on the general's future, his relationship with the media and his political aspirations — or lack thereof. The Washington Post has obtained a digital recording from the meeting, which took place in Petraeus's office in Kabul."* The Washington Post uncovered a tape with a representative for Fox News president Ailes and then-General Robert Petraeus in Spring of 2011. Ailes pretty much puts his full support behind Petraeus to run for president with himself running the campaign, Rupert Murdoch funding it, and perhaps more of the staff helping in some way. Does this give the public any doubt as to what Fox News' intentions are? What about Ailes' "It was a joke" response; would people buy that? Cenk Uygur breaks down this ridiculous breach of "fair and balanced" ethics. *Read more from Bob Woodward/ Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/fox-news-chiefs-failed-attempt-to-enlist-petraeus-as-presidential-candidate/2012/12/03/15fdcea8-3d77-11e2-a2d9-822f58ac9fd5_story.html Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Support The Young Turks by Shopping http://bit.ly/XhuNqO Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Wrong! Dick Morris 'Landslide' Prediction, Weak Explanation
 
06:41
"Behold political analyst Dick Morris the day after his absurd Election 2012 predictions were discredited by reality. "I've got egg on my face," he admitted on his Web site, and I normally wouldn't revel in another man's chagrin, but the next sentence is so breathtakingly shameless that I can't resist. "I predicted a Romney landslide and, instead, we ended up with an Obama squeaker," he wrote. "The key reason for my bum prediction is that I mistakenly believed that the 2008 surge in black, Latino, and young voter turnout would recede in 2012 to 'normal' levels. Didn't happen." What's so shameless about that? In the Dick Morris prediction, Mitt Romney was forecast to win by 325 electoral votes, a result Morris labels a "landslide" in his apology. Right now, with Florida still undecided but leaning toward Obama, it's very possible that Obama will win with 332 electoral votes, which Morris calls "an Obama squeaker."* Cenk Uygur breaks down the pre-election and post-election statements made by Morris, and why he deserves your ridicule. *Read more from Conor Friedersdorf/ The Atlantic: http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2012/11/dick-morris-cant-even-stop-spinning-long-enough-to-apologize/264932/# Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Support The Young Turks by Shopping http://bit.ly/XhuNqO Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

In-Law Relations Key to a Good Marriage?
 
02:57
"If you have prickly relations with your in-laws, whether you are a husband or a wife, new research offers some surprising insights into the risks and benefits of maintaining your distance from your spouse's parents. One finding of a 26-year longitudinal study of married couples is that marriages in which the husband reports feeling close to his in-laws are more likely to last for the long haul. "These ties connect the husband to the wife," says Terri Orbuch, a psychologist and research professor at the University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research. "They say, 'Your family relationships are important to me because you are important to me. I want to feel closer to them because it makes me feel closer to you."* A 26-year study found that being close to your spouses family could help or hurt your relationship quite a bit, but it's different between men and women.

Romney's Opportunistic Storm Photo Op
 
04:53
"The last-minute decision by Romney high command Monday to suspend politics while Sandy raged sent aides in Ohio scrambling to convert a scheduled victory rally into an apolitical "storm relief event" — a process that tested the campaign's agility and left a few threads of partisanship inadvertently hanging. On Monday morning, Romney's local team in Dayton was eagerly preparing to host the candidate the following day. A high school gym had been reserved, a stage had been rented, and a pair of celebrity guests — country singer Randy Owen and NASCAR driver Richard Petty — had been booked to give the event some B-list heft. Then, a little before noon, communications director Gail Gitcho announced the cancellation of "all events currently scheduled" for Tuesday. The superstorm that forecasters had been warning about for days had picked up steam, and people throughout the Northeast were now bracing for the worst. In a statement, Gitcho said the decision to cancel campaign events had been made "out of sensitivity to the millions of Americans in the path of Hurricane Sandy."* Cenk Uygur breaks down the cobbled-together "craven and opportunistic" faux photo-op. *Read more from McKay Coppins/ Buzzfeed: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mckaycoppins/the-making-of-romneys-storm-relief-event Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Support The Young Turks by Shopping http://bit.ly/XhuNqO Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Man Confesses to Murder on Deathbed, Convicted After Recovery

"A Nashville inmate has been convicted of murder after he confessed to a brutal 1995 crime while recovering from a seizure attack in prison, telling a guard he had something to get off his chest. James Washington, 50, was convicted last week of the murder of Joyce Goodener, a 35-year-old Nashville woman who was found dead by firefighters inside an abandoned home 17 years ago. According to authorities, Goodener was stabbed, beaten with a cinder block, rolled in a rug and set on fire. Washington, who was already in prison serving a 15-year sentence for a 2006 attempted second-degree murder conviction, suffered an attack of seizures in 2009. While laid up in the hospital, he confessed his involvement in the murder of Goodener to one of the few people near him, prison guard James Tomlinson. Prison officials brought the confession to prosecutors, who moved to indict Washington for the crime."* Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur discuss the unlikely story of a deathbed confession coming back to haunt a man who survived almost certain death. *Read more from Kevin Dolack/ ABC News: http://abcnews.go.com/US/inmate-james-washington-convicted-death-bed-murder-confession/story?id=17653264#.UJ4vcOOe8Yk Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Support The Young Turks by Shopping http://bit.ly/XhuNqO Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Chris Christie For President, 2016?

"When one thinks of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, acrobatics might not be the first term that comes to mind. But if rumors are true and the booming Republican governor does indeed plan to seek the GOP's presidential nomination in 2016, he'll need to perform an impressive circus trick: both building off the centrist support he's earned in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, and repairing relations with an increasingly skeptical Republican base that sees his embrace of President Obama just days before the election as a betrayal."* Could Chris Christie be already starting his bid for president in 2016? Can he take on Cory Booker, and what policies would either man push in office? Steve Oh (COO of The Young Turks) and Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) discuss Christie's centrist point of view and why it's serving him well. *Read more from Justin Sink/ The Hill: http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/269129-christie-has-tightrope-to-walk-for-2016-presidential-bid Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Support The Young Turks by Shopping http://bit.ly/XhuNqO Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Hostess CEOS Take Pensions from Employees

It isn't clear how many of the Irving, Texas, company's workers were affected by the move or how much money never wound up in their pension plans as promised. After the company said in August 2011 that it would stop making pension contributions, the foregone wages weren't put toward the pension. Nor were they restored."* After employees of bankrupt Hostess were laid off, they received another insult to injury-- the CEOS raided their pension funds.

Ryan 'Did Nothing' at Soup Kitchen Photo Op, Says Charity President

"The head of a northeast Ohio charity says that the Romney campaign last week "ramrodded their way" into the group's Youngstown soup kitchen so that GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan could get his picture taken washing dishes in the dining hall. Brian J. Antal, president of the Mahoning County St. Vincent De Paul Society, said that he was not contacted by the Romney campaign ahead of the Saturday morning visit by Ryan, who stopped by the soup kitchen after a town hall at Youngstown State University. "We're a faith-based organization; we are apolitical because the majority of our funding is from private donations," Antal said in a phone interview Monday afternoon. "It's strictly in our bylaws not to do it. They showed up there, and they did not have permission. They got one of the volunteers to open up the doors."* Cenk Uygur breaks down what Paul Ryan was doing, and what it meant for the charity. *read more from Felicia Sonmez/Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/election-2012/wp/2012/10/15/charity-president-unhappy-about-paul-ryan-soup-kitchen-photo-op/ Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Woman Dies After Denied Abortion - Cenk on 'Morality'
 
07:03
"The debate over legalizing abortion in Ireland flared Wednesday after the government confirmed a miscarrying woman suffering from blood poisoning was refused a quick termination of her pregnancy and died in an Irish hospital. Prime Minister Enda Kenny said he was awaiting findings from three investigations into the death of Savita Halappanavar, an Indian living in Galway since 2008 who was 17 weeks along in her pregnancy. The 31-year-old's case highlights the bizarre legal limbo in which pregnant women facing severe health problems in predominantly Catholic Ireland can find themselves. Ireland's constitution officially bans abortion, but a 1992 Supreme Court ruling found it should be legalized for situations when the woman's life is at risk from continuing the pregnancy. Five governments since have refused to pass a law resolving the confusion, leaving Irish hospitals reluctant to terminate pregnancies except in the most obviously life-threatening circumstances."* Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss the story of Savita Halappanavar, who died after the Catholic hospital refused her repeated requests for an abortion. Are the strict abortion rules and imposed religious morality upheld by the hospital really viable in today's age? Where did the idea of this form of "morality" and religion over human life and suffering even originate, and why do people follow it? Cenk Uygur has an answer. *Read more from Shawn Pogatchnik/ Chicago Sun Times: http://www.suntimes.com/news/world/16378770-418/story.html Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Support The Young Turks by Shopping http://bit.ly/XhuNqO Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Nate Silver's Dire Warning to Republicans
 
07:59
"Two more presidential elections, 2016 and 2020, will be contested under the current Electoral College configuration, which gave Barack Obama a second term on Tuesday. This year's results suggest that this could put Republicans at a structural disadvantage. Based on a preliminary analysis of the returns, Mitt Romney may have had to win the national popular vote by three percentage points on Tuesday to be assured of winning the Electoral College. The last Republican to accomplish that was George H.W. Bush, in 1988. In the table below, I have arranged the 50 states and the District of Columbia from the most Democratic to the most Republican, based on their preliminary results from Tuesday. Along the way, I have counted up the number of electoral votes for the Democratic candidate, starting at zero and going up to 538 as he wins progressively more difficult states."* Cenk Uygur, Michael Shure (political correspondent, TYT and Current TV) and John Iadarola (Host, TYT University) break down the numbers and discuss where the GOP could possibly go from this point, and what they can do. *Read more from Nate Silver/FiftyThirtyEight: http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/11/08/as-nation-and-parties-change-republicans-are-at-an-electoral-college-disadvantage/ Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Support The Young Turks by Shopping http://bit.ly/XhuNqO Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/
