What are your thoughts on them? 

Their YT channel is:

Yes they are considered progressive and somewhat lib but they are probably the most blunt political and current event dialogue out there right now.

I lovem. i dont always agree with them but ive watched them for many years at this point. they state any bias they have but they will give kudos and condem based on a persons action  even if they dont like it. they can cover really funny topics but most of it is political. but they do dumb down the politics so the common man can understand without using the political rederect that confuses most. :)

Like them. The one guy on there who does old movies intros for TCM is FINE!! The Middle eastern guy used to be on MSNBC. I remember him from the the first Obama election season. They're fair.

I think they are boring and cliche. They say lots of inflammatory things, they don't engage in actual journalism, and they don't have an interesting perspective.

They are a bunch of loudmouths and I don't like that...talking over each other. That's my biggest problem.

I enjoy them but readily admit that I tend to read Cenk Uygur more than listen to "Young Turks".

we are talking about a show not a group of people from turkey

.... inflamatory to who? they again, cover good and bad things of all people they cover. if the person like trumps does nothing but shitty things, they report shitty things though i have heard many times they have given hm kudos even tho they dont like it. the "real" journalism is done on the channel. do more research. who do you think started the hub bub media wise of the dakota pipeline. tyt.  i guess being passionate isnt allowed when they get upset about things happening in america or to americans huh?
