The Young Turks: Cenk Uygur

This past year, I’ve become a fan of The Young Turks show which I discovered on Youtube.  It is presently my favorite political commentary show.

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.
