Freedom Of The Press For Everyone? No! Say Senators
 
04:01
"The fact that the US Senate is now defining what a journalist actually is sets a dangerous precedent threatening the present marketplace of ideas that in recent history has been greatly expanded by the internet. According to the text of an amendment sponsored by Senators Diane Feinstein and Dick Durbin to the proposed "Free Flow of Information Act" (PDF) that passed the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 12, only salaried journalists will be given the free press protections guaranteed to all US citizens by the Constitution."* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down. *Read more here from James Tracy / Activist Post: http://www.activistpost.com/2013/09/free-flow-of-information-act-targets.html Preserve TYT as a progressive voice that challenges the establishment by becoming a member at http://www.tytnetwork.com/member-options/.

What Privacy? CISPA Passes in Closed Door Vote
 
05:32
"As US cybersecurity bill CISPA heads to the House Floor for a vote, the White House National Security Council has issued a statement suggesting that the President won't support it in its current form. "We continue to believe that information sharing improvements are essential to effective legislation," said NSC spokesperson Caitlin Hayden told the Los Angeles Times in a statement. "but they must include privacy and civil liberties protections, reinforce the roles of civilian and intelligence agencies, and include targeted liability protections."* CISPA, the controversial bill that greatly threatens the privacy of anyone online, is making its way to Congress after passing in a closed-door vote by the House Intelligence Committee by a huge margin. There were no changes to the language to protect personal privacy. How is this happening after the internet so loudly cried foul, and why is it being ignored in the press? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down. *Read more from The Verge: http://www.theverge.com/2013/4/11/4213832/white-house-knocks-cispa-bill-for-not-addressing-civil-liberties Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://www.youtube.com/user/theyoungturks Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/theyoungturks Support TYT for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=theyoungturks-20 Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

"Internet freedom activist Aaron Swartz was "killed by the government," his father told mourners Tuesday during his son's funeral in suburban Chicago.

He was facing federal charges that alleged he illegally gained access to millions of articles from a Massachusetts Institute of Technology computer archive."* Eyes are turning on U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz and MIT for their possible roles in the death of internet activist, Aaron Swartz. Swartz's father says his son was killed by the government at the funeral, but people from the government's side are saying otherwise.

Why Did Aaron Swartz Face More Prison Time Than Killers?
 
04:23
"On Friday, Internet pioneer and open information activist Aaron Swartz took his own life at the age of 26. At the time of his death, Swartz was under indictment for logging into JSTOR, a database of scholarly articles, and rapidly downloading those articles with the intent to make them public. If Swartz had lived to be convicted of the charges against him, he faced 50 years or more in a federal prison."* Aaron Swartz was a brilliant hacktivist who stood for the spread of knowledge before he committed suicide at 26. He was facing more prison time for spreading academic articles on the internet publicly. What was it about Swartz that threatened the federal government so much?

Rich Political Donor Doesn't Face Consequences?

"How do you describe Steven L. Rattner? Up until three years ago, he was typically referred to in these pages as a former journalist turned successful financier — the vice chairman of the investment bank Lazard and then a co-founder of the Quadrangle Group, the private equity firm."* Steve Rattner was a big-time financier and even became the White House auto czar, until he was accused of "pay-to-play" tactics while raising money from a pension fund while still at his private equity firm. Did he get punished? Sort of. Is he no longer a key figure with Democrats? Nope, he's still around, embraced. Could his forgiveness possibly be due to his money? Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

"Uruguay's drug tsar says the country plans to sell legal marijuana for $1 a gram to combat drug-trafficking, according to a local newspaper. The plan to create a government-run legal marijuana industry has passed the lower house of Congress, and Uruguay's president, José Mujica, expects to push it through the Senate soon as part of his effort to explore alternatives in the war on drugs. The measure would make Uruguay the first country in the world to license and enforce rules for the production, distribution and sale of marijuana for adult consumers."* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down. *Read more here from AP / The Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/oct/22/uruguay-legal-marijuana-drug-traffickers Download audio and video of the full two hour show on-demand + the members-only post game show by becoming a member at http://www.tytnetwork.com/member-options/.

Elizabeth Warren: Students Should Pay What Bankers Pay
 
05:30
"Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has just introduced a new bill, the Bank on Students Loan Fairness Act, to offer student loans at the same rates that the Federal Reserve charges big banks through its discount window lending program. At the moment, that rate is about 0.75%. The rates on federally guaranteed student loans, meanwhile, is set to double to 6.8% this summer."* Elizabeth Warren introduced her first bill as senator-- and it would effectively make the student loan interest rate the very same rate bankers enjoy. Could this draw more attention to the big banks?

What Is 'Petcoke'?

"The images are startling. Billowing black clouds darken the daytime sky as wind-driven grit pelts homes and cars and forces bewildered residents to take cover. The onslaught, captured in photos and video footage from Detroit and Chicago this year, was caused by the same thing: brisk winds sweeping across huge black piles of petroleum coke, or "petcoke," a powdery byproduct of oil refining that's been accumulating along Midwest shipping channels and sparking a new wave of health and environmental concerns. The piles are evidence of a sharp increase in North American oil production - particularly crude extracted from oil sands in Canada - that has been trapped in the Midwest because of limited pipeline capacity to carry it to the Gulf and West coasts, leading to unprecedented amounts of oil refining and petcoke production in the Midwest...".* *Read more here from the AP: http://www.sfgate.com/business/article/Piles-of-petcoke-raising-anger-in-Midwest-5011319.php Download audio and video of the full two hour show on-demand + the members-only post game show by becoming a member at http://www.tytnetwork.com/member-options/.

800 Miles An Hour In A Tube? 'Hyperloop' Makes It Possible

Almost a year after Elon Musk, chief executive of Tesla Motors (TSLA) and SpaceX, first floated the idea of a superfast mode of transportation, he has finally revealed the details: a solar-powered, city-to-city elevated transit system that could take passengers and cars from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 30 minutes.

Aaron Swartz Found Dead
 
09:08
"For Aaron Swartz, the act of sharing was a "moral imperative." In his Guerilla Open Access Manifesto, released to the Web in July 2008, he specifically targeted the "world's entire scientific and cultural heritage," which he said "is increasingly being digitized and locked up by a handful of private corporations." Swartz called for those with access to such knowledge to make it available to others. You get to feed at this banquet of knowledge while the rest of the world is locked out. But you need not — indeed, morally, you cannot — keep this privilege for yourselves. You have a duty to share it with the world. And you have: trading passwords with colleagues, filling download requests for friends ... Only those blinded by greed would refuse to let a friend make a copy."* Aaron Swartz was found dead, apparently having committed suicide after a huge federal case was mounting against him. What did he do? Why was Swartz, a brilliant hacker and innovator who wanted to spread knowledge freely so dangerous in the eyes of the government?

Dodge released a certain ad using stills of farmers and agricultural scenes over a louder-than-usual voiceover of Paul Harvey's poem, "So God Made A Farmer." This ad, pandering as it may have been, was used to sell cars. Our spot doesn't wish to sell you anything. Maybe it could air in the next Superbowl? Cenk Uygur reads the words of Brett Arends in, "So God Made a Banker." A parody of Dodge's "So God Made a Farmer" Superbowl ad, found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S87BhEJX_bg The full text is available here from Brett Arends/ Wall Street Journal: http://www.marketwatch.com/story/so-god-made-a-banker-2013-02-06?link=MW_popular Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://www.youtube.com/user/theyoungturks Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/theyoungturks Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Employee Benefits: Costco vs. Sam's Club
 
02:22
"Costco is bucking the retail blues today with an earnings report of 8 percent year-on-year sales growth, including a 5 percent increase in same-store sales. They also had what looks like a really big increase in total membership fees, from $459 million in this quarter last year to $528 million in the most recent quarter. For comparison's sake, Wal-Mart's up 1.2 percent and Target's up 0.4 percent during the same period. JC Penney is totally collapsing. It's a little difficult to know what to attribute this to, since Coscto's profile—it's a discount store, but one serving a relatively upscale demographic—is a bit ambiguous. But their success really is noteworthy since the brick-and-mortar retailing sector is in a state of overall slump apart from the ups and downs of economic fluctuations."* Take note Papa John and other industrialists: you don't have to treat your employees like garbage to turn a profit. Costco pays good wages, gives employee benefits, and its CEO wants minimum wage increased. The result? Great profits company-wide. Cenk Uygur breaks it down. *Read more from Slate: http://www.slate.com/blogs/moneybox/2013/03/12/costco_earnings_sales_and_profits_up.html Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://www.youtube.com/user/theyoungturks Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/theyoungturks Support TYT for FREE by doing your Amazon shopping through this link (bookmark it!) http://www.amazon.com/?tag=theyoungturks-20 Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Trump's University Students Taught How To Swindle Trump University Students
 
04:25
"A lawsuit filed Saturday by New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman alleges that Donald Trump defrauded more than 5,000 people of $40 million, handed over for what was supposed to be the opportunity to learn Trump's real estate investment magic at his for-profit training program, Trump University. The suit also names The Trump Entrepreneur Institute—previously known as Trump University LLC—and Michael Sexton, former president of the institution. Beginning in 2005, Trump University offered a program that began with a free introductory 90-minute presentation promising to teach the secrets that helped build his real estate empire. This was, according to the suit, no more than a lengthy promotion for a three-day, $1,500 seminar. The three-day program, in turn, was used to plug "elite" courses that cost anywhere from $10,000 to $35,000."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

We Bailed Out AIG, Now They're Suing Us?!

"Fresh from launching a branding campaign to try to rechristen itself as a paragon of patriotism, the giant insurer American International Group is reportedly weighing a step that would remind America just why everyone got so darn mad in the first place. The board of AIG, according to the New York Times, is weighing whether to join a $25 billion lawsuit against the U.S. government for forcing unacceptably high losses on shareholders in its bailout. The argument is that this violated the Fifth Amendment's prohibition on the government seizing private property without just compensation."* American taxpayers rescued AIG from financial turmoil when no one else would.

North Carolina Wants to Ban Tesla... And Only Tesla

"From the state that brought you the nation's first ban on climate science comes another legislative gem: a bill that would prohibit automakers from selling their cars in the state. The proposal, which the Raleigh News & Observer reports was unanimously approved by the state's Senate Commerce Committee on Thursday, would apply to all car manufacturers, but the intended target is clear."* North Carolina lawmakers want to effectively ban Tesla, the electric car company, because of "unfair" competition. Of course, the bill is being pushed by the state automobile dealer's association and the bill's sponsor took the maximum amount of campaign contributions from that group. Lovely.

Bernie Sanders For President Rumors

"Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) appeared on MSNBC Friday morning to discuss yesterday's landmark vote to curtail the filibuster process in the Senate, but ended up stoking rumors about his own future when he said he would be open to a presidential run in 2016. The latest round of speculation began earlier this week when Sanders first expressed his "consideration" on Thom Hartmann's radio show and then told his local Burlington Free Press that he's "willing to consider making a run if no one else with progressive views similar to his ends up taking the plunge."

Republican Hypocrisy on Oklahoma Relief Aid

"Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) fired back Thursday at those who have criticized him for demanding that any disaster aid package for Oklahoma tornado victims include offsets, or matching spending cuts elsewhere in the budget. The money is already available to help his constituents, Coburn argued, suggesting that lawmakers only want to pass an unpaid-for disaster aid package so they can tuck other unrelated items in it to benefit their home states."* Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) is firing back for being called a hypocrite for voting against giving relief funds to states ravaged by Hurricane Sandy. Now he's saying he doesn't need aid- why?

Rich Teen Kills 4, Avoids Prison Thanks To 'Affluenza'
 
07:56
"The case of a rich Texas teenager who received probation but no jail time after killing four people in a drunk driving car crash in June has sparked a new debate about money, power, and punishment after the teen's defense team argued he was the victim of "affluenza," or the failure of his wealthy parents to set boundaries. Judge Jean Boyd accepted Ethan Couch's guilty pleas for killing four people and injuring nine, but the punishment -- most likely a lengthy stay at a $1,200-a-day California drug treatment facility -- brought widespread outrage because it seemed to suggest that the judge bought the defense theory "that because he has gotten off without serious punishment in the past, he cannot be seriously punished in this case either," as Jaquielynn Floyd of the Dallas Morning News writes Thursday. Judge Boyd made no further comments on her ruling, and has said she won't comment on the case because of ethical restraints. She had previously said she will not run for reelection to her seat."* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down. *Read more here from Patrik Jonsson / Christian Science Monitor: http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Justice/2013/1212/Rich-kid-gets-probation-for-drunk-driving-deaths.-His-defense-Affluenza.

"Dr. Cornel West says that President Barack Obama doesn't deserve to be sworn in for his second term as President of the United States with his hand on the bible of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. "You don't play with Martin Luther King, Jr. and you don't play with his people, said West. "By his people, I mean people of good conscience, fundamentally good people committed to peace and truth and justice, especially the Black tradition that produced it.""* Activist and professor, Dr. Cornel West spoke passionately after the inauguration, saying President Obama doesn't deserve to be sworn in with Martin Luther King Jr's Bible. Why doesn't West see Obama as worthy? How would Obama get along with MLK, if he were still living?

10:05
"Earlier today, WikiLeaks sent out a cryptic tweet that hinted they had more information about yesterday's tragic death of reporter Michael Hastings. They followed through with another tweet claiming that Hastings reached out to one of their lawyers to reveal to them he believed the FBI was investigating him."* Our friend and colleague Michael Hastings died early Tuesday morning in a one-car crash in Los Angeles. Wikileaks' Twitter account is now reporting that hours before his death, Hastings contacted Wikileaks lawyer Jennifer Robinson saying he was being investigated by the FBI.
