Former MSNBC host Cenk Uygurs departure from the network earlier today was fairly quiet for a close-to-primetime host, and the network made it clear it was his choice to leave. It didnt take long for the newly liberated Uygur to address his fans.
In the end, he explained, it boils down to this: Cenk Uygur is a tiger, and MSNBC tried to cage him.
They offered, honestly, a lot of money, Uygur explains in his message, where he also says the role would have been a smaller one contributor, etc. instead of the alternate program the MSNBC statement suggested. He then explained something an executive once told him when he began as host: there are two audiences the audience youre trying to appeal to, the viewers, and management.
Management took him aside in April, he explains, and told him to tone it down because people in Washington are concerned about your tone. He did the exact opposite.
He concluded succinctly that I didnt want to work in a place that wouldnt let me do my kind of show, that wasnt interested in my kind of show, that didnt wnat to challenge power.

If Sharpton is the replacement MSNBC should be satisfied. One thing about Al is he will do what he's told as long as he gets his paycheck. When he's bought off, he stays bought off.
Seriously disturbed people will be Charlatan's audience.
Cenk Uygur is the sound my toilet makes when you flush it.
Oh boy. Sounds like someone thinks pretty highly of themselves . . . . .
In Jumbleville his name would translate to Yuck Green.
I had a rectal Cenk Uygur but the doc gave me some ointment and it healed.

Most of you are doing a fine job, but we must eliminate the Cult Fringes who impeding our progress for Hope and Change.
Photo looks like The Wizard of OZ and it’s people to me. A little green here and there might help. Little smoke and mirrors....for the little man behind the curtain.
That’s the second story today about the left where the words “Cult Fringes” is used.
Purely coincidental I’m sure.
“Management took him aside in April, he explains, and told him to tone it down because people in Washington are concerned about your tone. He did the exact opposite.”
“Cenk Uygur is the sound my toilet makes when you flush it.”
LOL, now that there is funny!!
So he is a frustrated and confused guy who thinks everyone is evil?
I’m sure he could have more influence on Al’s Current network.
He is a self described “Young Turk” -—
They resented Ottoman efforts toward secularization but largely hid their agenda from Christians. First the Young Turks tricked Chistian Armenians into contributing their guns to the war effort [WWI], disarming the infidels by exploiting their trust. Then they “drafted” all able bodied Armenian men who were either betrayed by mass executions or forced into a slow death by slave labor.
After that it was easy to send one million Christian women, children, elderly, and invalids on the 1915 Death Marches, where the Young Turks’ “Special Organization” systematically beat and herded them away from water. Special Organization members tortured, looted, and kidnapped surviving Death Marchers into slavery. Conservative estimates are that 600,000 Death Marchers died. Survivers were largely looted of all their clothing. They even raped little girls and coerced surviving children to denounce Christianity and submit to Islam. Turkey has reformed and is Islam’s greatest long standing example of a successful republic, but a constitution that needs a fickled “coup trigger” to prevent a new Young Turk movement is not proof of anything good
The wit and wisdom of Al Sharpton:
Sharpton was quoted as saying to an audience at Kean College in 1994 that, White folks was [sic] in caves while we was building empires.... We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.
“..........that didn’t challenge power”
Silly me, and here all along I thought he was doing his work exclusively for Obama.......
All he had to do was wait until a republican was president and they’d go back to “challenging power”.
I think it’s the opening shot from the famous Apple Macintosh commercial, 1984. (I would guess the year inspired the theme of the ad.)
