Mad as Hell

Rated NR 82 min. 2015

Cenk Uygur went from being a corporate attorney and unknown talk show host on local Public Access TV to an internet sensation with his online news show "The Young Turks," which has amassed over one billion views on YouTube. On a self-imposed mission to speak the truth, Cenk attracts a very loyal audience as he attempts to fix the "fundamentally broken system of politics and media in America". But once Cenk ventures from the internet into national television and lands the 6 PM time slot on MSNBC, his uncensored brand of journalism is compromised and Cenk becomes the nexus in the battle between new and old media. Here, we explore the new media revolution through Cenk's life and tumultuous career.
