The Young Turks, one of the most popular online news shows in the world, has amassed a YouTube network consisting of millions of subscribers and billions of views. But that wasn't always the case. MAD AS HELL documents the tumultuous, at times hilarious and altogether astonishing trajectory of Cenk Uygur, The Young Turks' main host and founder, as he traverses from unknown Public Access TV host to internet sensation by way of YouTube. When he ventures into national television by landing the 6 PM time slot on MSNBC, Cenk's uncensored brand of journalism is compromised as he becomes a thorn in the side of traditional news media; his unwavering dedication to speaking the truth puts him at the very nexus of the battle between new and old media, and makes MAD AS HELL not only entertaining, but incredibly timely as well.

If you want to see a movie about the seeking of truth, this is it!
1 February 2015 | by johny_be_badSee all my reviews

This is a great documentary if you've been somewhat skeptical about how regular news networks has handled different subjects and scandals over the last decade.

This documentary shows the journey that Cenk Uygur has been through to seek the truth from politicians and other news networks. It shows all the successes of his work and the opposition he has had to go up against just because he never fears telling the truth. Instead he fears lying or going too soft on people and subjects.

Which can be problematic in the news culture we have today, when the news organizations are competing for viewers and want to get guests back to their channel to be favored over other news networks by driving viewers interested in the guests (that they've soft-balled) to their channel.

Or when they want to fill their time space with pop culture (whether it is internet sensations or celebrities) to get more of the young audience to their channel, even though it is in no way newsworthy. Let's not forget how facts are distorted or completely fabricated to fit with the agenda of their political party.

Here is where Cenk and his news organization "The Young Turks" comes in. They are the antithesis of the current news culture. They're never afraid to be hard on people with power or fame.

They always tell us the truth and when they get facts wrong, they quickly correct themselves in the next show so that they don't lose any credibility. They aren't afraid to have controversial opinions and they won't make excuses for their political party unless it's warranted.

Cenk and his show grew to such fame that MSNBC hired him. Of course this was short lived since he didn't want to lie or take it easy on guests. Cenk has since returned to The Young Turks as the boss man and they are more popular than ever. They have gotten to the point now that they are getting more viewers than many regular television news channels.

Lately, Cenk has started Wolf Pac. Their goal is to try (and succeed) with getting big money out of politics so that the "One Percent" has less control over the political system. And they have already succeeded in some states!

All in all, this is the incredible journey of an incredible man and the work he has done with his incredible co-workers to affect the corrupt political system and news culture in the U.S.A.

A lot of work and fights that has gotten them (and us) results and they'll continue to produce results as long as they continue this fight and as long as people are ready to listen to the truth.

Thank you Cenk, The Young Turks and the Wolf Pac for helping U.S.A.
