Even at MSNBC, which gets crushed of course by Fox News in every prime-time slot, Cenk Uygur manages to come in dead last in ratings among his liberal peers.
So when Cenk claims that he covers Donald Trump not because he wants to--suggesting he'd rather be reporting on Pawlenty/Romney's latest doings--the baloney-meter starts screaming.

Ratings-deprived MSNBC host claims he doesn’t want to cover Donald Trump, but has to because of his popularity with Republicans. Riiight. Ping to Today show list.
Did his mother name him after the cat ran across the ‘Scrabble’ board?
Hadn’t heard that one before! I’d laugh, but with a name like Finkelstein, I’m not exactly in a position ;-)
HONESTLY, I've never heard of him until now! (Scouts honor!)
Sounds like like one of those Chinese Terrorist that they released from GITMO.
Oh, that's right they were called Uighurs, but they (and he) all look (and sound) alike to a far-right, wing, extremist, clinger, like me.
“Did his mother name him after the cat ran across the Scrabble board?”
Bwahahahaha!! I needed a good laugh to start the day.
IIRC, `cenk’ means `war’ in Turkish and is more popular than Mohammed as a boys’ name, kind of like `timur’ in Central Asia.
`Uygur’ of course is the name of the Turkic minority group in western China. Turks, Uzbeks and Uighurs regard themselves as basically the same people all descended from ancient Turkestan.
Appreciate the info, though...
