Cenk Uygur is the host, and I appreciate his view. I suppose he has something like a liberal/libertarian bent, but he seems fair and honest in his criticisms of politicians of both parties. More importantly, he isn’t a ranting ideologue. He states the truth as he sees it and generally does so in a calm voice. He seems intelligent and insightful… especially compared to much of what I’m used to hearing from mainstream media (but, to be fair, Cenk has been on mainstream shows a few times).
I don’t know too much about Cenk’s biography, but I noticed some interesting details about his life. He is a former Muslim, a former Republican, and a former lawyer. Apparently, he had a major life change at some point.
