The Young Turks with Cenk Uygur on Current 1/18/12

Postby keithaddict » Wed Jan 18, 2012 7:39 pm

Segment 1 - Cenk discusses two recent Obama decisions, a good one on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline and one bad one about Larry Summers, then interviews musician and activist Tom Morello about anti-establishment politics.

Segment 2 - Cenk reports on SOPA and today's day of action protesting it with Ted Johnson, managing editor of Variety.

Segment 3 - Cenk interviews TYT Epic Politics Man Michael Shure about today's news in the GOP presidential primary.

Segment 4 - Cenk hosts the POWER Panel with Young Turk Ben Mankiewicz, Regulator Richard Eskow, and former TYT co-host (her new gig is with Third Way) Jill Pike. They discuss whether Newt is rebounding and a Newsweek story criticizing Obama detractors (this was also mentioned in Segment 1, by the way).

Segment 5 - Cenk shares some facts and figures on how some public programs could have been funded better and actually worked if the rich were taxed fairly to fund, and interviews Michael Hays of Public Citizen about money corrupting politics.

Segment 6 - In the U-Block, Cenk discusses Hillary Clinton appointing a Muslim to a position and predicts conservative pout-rage, then thanks a viewer on Facebook for catching some overlooked Mitt Romney facts.

"I take my role as a troll very seriously, a good part of that job is to be irritating." - Brooklyn Billy
