MSNBC’s Cenk Uygur: ‘I plan to beat Fox and be number one in the ratings’
TVNewser ^ | Feb. 9, 2011 | Molly Stark Dean

MSNBC’s Cenk Uygur sat down with news magazine AlterNet to talk about MSNBC, Fox News, and his web show “The Young Turks.”

Uygur described the difference between the web and MSNBC — where he was named a contributor and substitute anchor in October 2010. He told the magazine that “television gives you an opportunity to really put together a great product and visually make your case to the audience better.”

LOL I believe Piers Morgan said the same thing. His show is being boardcast from a basement over at CNN now. ;-)

It’s good to have goals. Hope he’s flexible as to the means, i.e. firing some of the lefty wackos.

Never heard of him. With a name like that you’d be remembered, IMHO.

The only time anyone I know hears about MSNBC is when Fox or CNN talks about them.

There, fixed it.

Might take him a few years or more to overcome Fox, now that Olberman has joined Al Gore.

... in Turkey.

That's why he named his show "Young Turks." They can't get enough of it in Istanbul.

Also #1 in China's Uyghur Autonomous Region, and among America's many young "Wiggers".
