Romney Campaign Genuinely Shocked at Loss
 
04:24
"Mitt Romney's campaign got its first hint something was wrong on the afternoon of Election Day, when state campaign workers on the ground began reporting huge turnout in areas favorable to President Obama: northeastern Ohio, northern Virginia, central Florida and Miami-Dade. Then came the early exit polls that also were favorable to the president. But it wasn't until the polls closed that concern turned into alarm. They expected North Carolina to be called early. It wasn't. They expected Pennsylvania to be up in the air all night; it went early for the President. After Ohio went for Mr. Obama, it was over, but senior advisers say no one could process it. "We went into the evening confident we had a good path to victory," said one senior adviser. "I don't think there was one person who saw this coming."* Cenk Uygur expresses his surprise that the Romney campaign was surprised they lost, in light of several signs (polls, election night numbers) that were readily available for quite some time. *Read more from Jan Crawford/ CBS News: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57547239/adviser-romney-shellshocked-by-loss/ 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 Anchors Stunned - Punked By Guest?
 
02:55
"An interview on Fox News was abruptly cut short on Friday after a guest's bizarre answers apparently raised fears he was pulling a hoax. Anthony Esolen was appearing on Fox & Friends to discuss his book on parenting when he launched into a sarcastic monologue about the need to keep children inside. The nonplussed anchors quickly cut him off and ended the interview, leaving the impression they believed he was deliberately sabotaging the appearance. Mr Esolen, a professor at Providence College in Rhode Island, was invited to the morning show to discuss his 2010 book Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child. The book is a passionate attack on many of the trappings of modern life, particularly television, video games and keeping children inside."* Cenk Uygur discusses Anthony Esolen's appearance on Fox News-- was he taking an opportunity to prank Fox News, or is sarcasm simply his style and Fox failed to research him properly? The faces of anchors Juliet Huddy and Clayton Morris tell a hilarious story. *Read more from Daily Mail: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2237720/Fox-News-interview-cut-short-guest-launches-bizarre-rant-live-air.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/

Marijuana Legalization Support At All Time High - Poll
 
04:40
Despite a record high level of support for marijuana legalization in America (according to polls by Rasmussen and Gallup), it appears President Obama may look to export anti-terrorist tactics to fight the war on drugs when he speaks at the Summit of the Americas. According to The Raw Story "...South American leaders will demand that the U.S. hear their arguments on drug legalization. Much as the U.S. argues for specialized tactics and military force to counter the drug gangs, South American nations like Colombia — a key U.S. military ally — are pushing for a less violent approach to counter the cartels that works through simple economics. Specifically, legalization would undercut the gangs' profits tremendously, which many believe would have a pacifying effect on the supply-side marketplace, currently drenched in blood from Peru to Mexico's northern border. Former presidents of Colombia, Mexico, Brazil and even one former U.S. Secretary of State all agree that America's drug war has failed and a new strategy is needed...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down. *Read More Here: http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/03/30/general-u-s-may-export-terror-war-tactics-to-fight-drug-gangs/ http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/03/29/rasmussen-record-percent-support-marijuana-legalization/ Subscribe to The Young Turks: http://bit.ly/eWuu5i The Largest Online New Show in the World.

Break Up The Big Banks - Conservative Dallas Fed President

Via The Raw Story: "In its annual report for 2011, issued on Wednesday, the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas released a startling report revealing that 52 percent of all the assets held by the entire banking industry have now become aggregated into the hands of just five companies, and the top 10 institutions have swollen so large that they possess wealth that equates to roughly half of America's annual gross domestic product (GDP). It is for those reasons that Dallas Fed president Richard Fisher, who's otherwise known as a conservative budget hawk, has embraced the radical cause of breaking up the nation's largest banks and forever ending "too big to fail"...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down. * http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/03/21/dallas-fed-top-five-u-s-banks-hold-over-half-of-industrys-assets/ Subscribe to The Young Turks: http://bit.ly/eWuu5i The Largest Online New Show in the World.

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."

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.

Cenk Tears Into Bought Michigan Rep.
 
01:50
"In Michigan, State Rep. Jon Bumstead (R) introduced a bill that would send the state back down the path of prison privatization. House Bill 1574 would re-open a private youth prison that was operated by GEO Group (then Wackenhut) that was shut down in 2005 and allow it to house adult inmates. The bill would once again give GEO the right to operate the prison. This proposal has faced fierce protests from civil liberties and civil rights groups, which note that the prison was one of the most expensive to operate in the state when it was previously operated by GEO, and that it was also notorious for abuse of prisoners...Nine days before he introduced the bill, he [Bumstead] received a $500 contribution from Cloid Shuler, a GEO Group executive based in Florida. This makes Shuler tied with one other individual as Bumstead's top individual donor...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur shares his thoughts.

WWE Star Slams McMahon for Spending, Wrestler Treatment
 
04:01
"Linda McMahon, former president and CEO of WWE, failed in her bid for a Senate seat in Connecticut, losing to Democratic Rep. Chris Murphy on Tuesday. This follows her 2010 loss to Richard Blumenthal in the race for the state's other seat in the Senate. The total cost of losing two elections has ranged from $90 to $97 million, according to estimates. McMahon spent $50 million of her personal fortune in her failed 2010 campaign, and is believed to have spent $40 to $47 million the second time around. Between both campaigns, McMahon has now spent a cumulative total of over $90 million in pursuit of federal office. That is more than any other American in history. WWE Hall of Famer "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, who worked under the employ of McMahon, criticized her exorbitant spending on two failed Senate campaigns in a series of Twitter messages Wednesday. After asking his followers whether McMahon won her race, he wrote, "Can spend 90 million on a losing election but won't give the people that earned that money for them medical or retirement help of any kind!"* Cenk Uygur brings us Piper's quotes about Linda McMahon's spending on her campaigns, rather than paying medical benefits or retirement to the wrestlers she employs. *Read more from Steve Carrier/ TWNP News: http://www.twnpnews.com/2012/11/rowdy-roddy-piper-slams-linda-mcmahon-for-spending-90-million-to-lose-two-elections/ Watch the original video of Rowdy Roddy Piper and Jimmy Snuka: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZbZseTuQ1I 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/

Pat Robertson Denounces Creationism?
 
04:00
"Televangelist Pat Robertson challenged the idea that Earth is 6,000 years old this week, saying the man who many credit with conceiving the idea, former Archbishop of Ireland James Ussher, "wasn't inspired by the Lord when he said that it all took 6,000 years." The statement was in response to a question Robertson fielded Tuesday from a viewer on his Christian Broadcasting Network show "The 700 Club." In a submitted question, the viewer wrote that one of her biggest fears was that her children and husband would not go to heaven "because they question why the Bible could not explain the existence of dinosaurs." "You go back in time, you've got radiocarbon dating. You got all these things, and you've got the carcasses of dinosaurs frozen in time out in the Dakotas," Robertson said. "They're out there. So, there was a time when these giant reptiles were on the Earth, and it was before the time of the Bible. So, don't try and cover it up and make like everything was 6,000 years. That's not the Bible."* Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian find themselves stunned when they agree with Pat Robertson on something! Robertson recently challenged creationism while on The 700 Club, and the idea that the earth is 6,000 years old. *Read more from Dan Merica/ CNN: http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2012/11/29/pat-robertson-challenges-creationism/ 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/

Limbaugh Backtracks on "We've Lost the Country!"
 
03:54
Rush Limbaugh, along with many of the Republican old guard, seems completely unwilling, or unable, to accept reality. Their candidate lost the election to Barack Obama and Rush is still blaming welfare recipients for re-electing the President. In his twisted version of the universe, 52 million voters only supported the Democrats because they hand out free money. According to His Royal Rushness: "I'm not saying that the Republicans couldn't do a better job with some of these minority voters, but you better understand why they're not voting for you. In terms of the Hispanic vote, it is not because of immigration policy. Hispanics are voting for Democrats because of the same reason any other people vote for Democrats. They're the party of free stuff. They are the party of Santa Claus." Cenk Uygur, Michael Shure (Political correspondent- TYT, Current TV), and John Iadarola (Host, TYT University) break down the outdated viewset held by Limbaugh and other conservative pundits, and why they can't persist.

Barbara Walters: Chris Christie Too Fat to be President?

"New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told ABC's Barbara Walters that even though he is "more than a little" overweight, it's "ridiculous" to think that he is too heavy to be president of the United States. Walters said she was "very uncomfortable asking" Christie about his weight, but she did so anyway in an interview for her "10 Most Fascinating People of 2012″ special. "I've done this job pretty well," Christie said about concerns over his health. "I think people watched me for the last number of weeks during Hurricane Sandy doing 18-hour days and getting back up the next day and still being just as effective in the job, so i don't think that will be a problem."* Chris Christie is overweight. Everyone knows it, but why does everyone, including Barbara Walters, care?

The New Bath Salts? 'White Bull' Cocaine Substitute
 
02:21
"ADULT stores are selling a synthetic cocaine called White Bull for $100 a gram. This is twice the price of old-fashioned amphetamines that bikies used to cook - and we were told it's stronger than the real and illegal stuff. White Bull is part of a $200-million-a-year catalogue of legal highs that adult stores are marketing as an offset for the drop in DVD sales because of the prevalence of online porn. The man behind the counter at Love Play had only two little bags of White Bull left for sale. He said the store sells out every weekend. ''Less is more with this stuff,'' he said. White Bull is an apparently legal substitute for cocaine, which retails illegally for $350 a gram. ''The feeling is that of cocaine, speed, ecstasy,'' he said. Meaning it keeps you awake, a bit horny and somehow sets a disco beat rocking in your head. It also makes your heart beat faster, and put on a hot glow that suggests one's thermo-regulation system is out of whack."* Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss "White Bull," a new synthetic and legal drug that claims to mimic the effects of cocaine. Is White Bull opening a new can of worms? Or is it just a way to raise sales in adult stores?

Big Oil Gets Billions in Tax Breaks, Buys More Politicians

"The world's largest oil companies — ExxonMobil, Shell, Chevron, BP, and ConocoPhillips — will begin to announce their third-quarter profits for 2012. In the first half of 2012, these companies — all ranked in the top 10 of Fortune 500 Global — earned over $60 billion. The oil industry reinvests tens of millions of these dollars for political purposes, including nearly all political contributions to Republicans, lobbying, and campaign ads. Through its enormous spending, these five and other Big Oil companies have fought to maintain $4 billion of their annual subsidies, while seeking to undermine clean energy investments."* Cenk Uygur breaks down this ridiculous perversion of the free market and looks into how oil companies are getting their tax breaks and spending their money. *Read more from Rebecca Leber/ Think Progress: http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2012/10/24/1064231/three-ways-big-oil-spends-its-profits-to-defend-oil-subsidies-and-defeat-clean-energy/ 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/

Jesus Painting Fail

"A couple of weeks ago, the Centro de Estudios Borjanos in Borja, Spain, received a donation from the granddaughter of 19th-century painter Elías García Martínez. At the time, the Centro knew of only one painting by Martínez in Borja — Ecce Homo, a fresco on the walls of the church of Santuario de Misericordia...The restored version is apparently the work of an octogenarian neighbor of the church, who, noticing the damage to the painting, took it upon herself to restore the painting "with good intentions" but "without asking permission," as culture councillor Juan Maria de Ojeda put it. It became clear to the amateur restorer — quickly, one imagines — that "she had gotten out of hand," and she confessed to local authorities...".* Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur discuss on The Young Turks. *Read more here from Max Read in Gawker: http://gawker.com/5936665/heres-what-happened-when-an-elderly-man-took-it-upon-himself-to-restore-a-painting-in-a-nearby-church 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/

Fox News Blames Crowley/Truth for Obama Debate Win
 
03:39
Many conservative commentators quickly trained their sights on a common enemy during the debate: Candy Crowley, the moderator. Ms. Crowley, they complained, let Mr. Obama speak for longer than Mr. Romney. She fact-checked the Republican without fact-checking the Democrat. And she even told Mr. Romney to take his seat. One of the lead headlines on the Drudge Report late Tuesday night said, "Candy gives Obama 9 percent more time..." Laura Ingraham, the author and radio host, said on Twitter, "Candy ALWAYS lets Obama blow the clock..." But the most serious criticism of Ms. Crowley from the right was focused on her handling of an exchange between the two candidates over Libya and when the president declared the attack on the United States diplomatic mission there a terrorist attack. Mr. Romney accused the president of waiting 14 days before he declared it an act of terror. Ms. Crowley responded: "He did call it an act of terror." Because Mr. Obama was not direct in his remarks — he initially said of the attack "No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation" — Republicans have pounced, saying he blamed a video that mocked Islam. Charles Krauthammer, the columnist and Fox News analyst, accused Ms. Crowley of "contaminating" the debate with her intervention. John H. Sununu, a top Romney adviser, said Ms. Crowley "had no business doing a real-time fact check, if you will, because she was dead wrong."* Cenk Uygur breaks down why Fox News decided to blame Candy Crowley for Romney's debate-wallop. *Read more from Jeremy W.
